Fun, Gracious, and Kind

I run programs for adults with intellectual disabilities, and after a long time being pretty locked down we were able to get together for a picnic with all of our locations. I booked up Philly Heart and Soul to come and play for the people, and it was definitely the right choice.

Working with Sam to organize the gig, complete payment, all the administrative stuff was very easy to do. He was a great communicator. When the band played the dancing and smiles started immediately. The band was on point, sounded great, and played a selection that matched what we were looking for. My guys were dancing and having an absolute blast.

On top of being great musicians, the people in the band could not have been nicer. They were interactive with the people, didn't seem to mind a quick song interruption for a fist bump or high five, and seemed like they were having a ball playing for us.

I honestly couldn't have asked for more and would heartily recommend Philly Heart and Soul for their professionalism, fun, and simply kind people. Give 'em a shot.

Philly Heart and Soul created an unbelievable experience for my wife's surprise 40th Birthday! Our family and friends are still raving about the party and enjoyed singing and dancing the night away. The performance was very energetic and fun! They had a great stage presence with professional set up and lighting. They band played a variety of music and had amazing, personable singers to keep the guests up and dancing! During the party planning process, they were very helpful in handling our questions and communicating with us on every detail. They went above and beyond to make my event a complete success. I definitely recommend Philly Heart and Soul for your any event!! We look forward to seeing them again and plan to check them out at one of the many upcoming gigs they have on their schedule!

We (Carlino's Specialty Foods) hired PHS for our 10th Anniversary Party in West Chester in October, 2017. They were beyond what you pay for! Great bang for the buck. Large band and you can tell each member was having as great a time as all the party attendees were. They were so well reviewed by all the best! Would recommend them to anyone for business parties, weddings, etc. Thank you Philly Heart & Soul!

Oh My God!!!!...The band played for my Husband's 50th Birthday Party.  They were unbelievable!  They were so professional and my Husband actually sang a song with them.  They totally came through, and they were Awesome!!!  We are going to hire them for a few more parties in the future.

Yo! This is King Arthur!  There’s a well kept secret in Philly...BUT, not for long.  If you dig rhythm and blues or rock and roll, just to name a few, all genres of music well, here they are….the cat’s out of the bag….I’m talking about Philly Heart and Soul.   I have worked with them and they knocked my socks off!  Don’t pass up a chance to catch their act.

"Heard you at the Golden inn on New Years. Having spent many years playing on New Years and other engagements, I throughly enjoyed your music and my lady and I danced the night away. I believe it was Sam we told how much we enjoyed the music as he was leaving the Inn New Years Morning.   Again the music was fantastic.  Looking forward to catching you at other venues.   Thank you and have a happy and prosperous New Year.  It was the best night ever.  Ciao!

We first saw Philly Heart and Soul perform in November at the wedding of Kristi and Larry Anderson (Philadelphia Phillies Announcer).  The 7 piece band was totally unbelievable.  They kept the dance floor packed the entire night, and there was no doubt that the band was largely responsible for making the wedding unforgettable.
We have followed them ever since, and the atmosphere they create at every performance is always electrifying fun!  People are always coming up to us and saying they have never, ever heard a band play and sing like them.  They are just always over the top!

We held our All town reunion in November at the Springfield Country Club and I had the privilege of hearing Philly Heart and Soul for the first time.  What a dynamic group of musicians!  They managed to get the attention of people early in the evening and held the crowd throughout the evening!  They offered a great mix of music and everybody was up dancing!  I look forward to hearing them again soon.

...My wife and I heard your band at the St Pio Italian festival and even got a chance to talk with Sharon, who had such an amazing voice.  We loved your performances and really had a great time.
Your band all had fantastic voices and we had so much fun singing along. We will definitely be following where you guys play in the future...

I just want to say thank you to the Philly Heart and Soul Band for their outstanding performance at the St Pio festival in Philly!  We all had such a great time and their music made it even greater!  You guys have a fantastic soulful sound and I cant wait till we see you again!

My girlfriend and I had dinner at DaVinchi's.  We were about ready to leave and we heard the music coming from the bar area .  So we went to the bar area.  That was the best thing we could have done! 
The Philly Heart and Soul Band was performing.  They had a great sound and funky groove.  We never danced so much in such a long time.  They were certainly pros with stage presence and playing precision without having a horn section but it was there all night long.  Your keyboardist was on the money spot on perfect!!!!!!!!!  We hope to see your band soon.  Thanks for a blast of a time !!!!!!!!

I was in town on real estate business from Orlando, FL.  Someone suggested DiPaolo's for great food and music.  I got both!!!  The food was wonderful Italian cuisine and the music was provided by PHILLY HEART and SOUL, a powerhouse band.  They were real pros with terrific song selection.  That's for sure.  They had excellent front vocals and musicianship driving the tight sound.  They certainly had the complete package.

It's a shame we don't have more bands like that in Orlando.  I will certainly stay in touch with their website and scheduled dates for the next time I am up this way.  Thanks for the great evening and sounds!!!!!!
