Ten Souljers are the freshest, hottest, most talented "must have" dance band in Canada.  

Lovingly assembled, it comprises the most elite musicians from Vancouver and the Lower Mainland and combines brilliantly accomplished musicianship with youthful zeal, enthusiasm and an inherent ability to entertain as well as perform. That's right!! The Souljers set themselves apart when it comes to developing a rapport with their audience. Experts at reading the crowd, champions of interaction, Ten Souljers light up the room with their glorious energy and their infectious persona - every single time!

Each and every member loves being in the band and performing with them - and it shows! Their on-stage chemistry is abundantly obvious and their unmistakable enthusiasm readily transmits to their audience. The band creates a unique, united choreographed visual spectacle from stage left to stage right, making it impossible to resist the temptation to boogie on down! 

They have established a huge repertoire of songs, carefully selected to suit their energetic style, and to cater to all tastes. All the big contemporary songs, the dance floor fillers, including Black Eyed Peas, Flo-Rida, Pitt Bull, Lady Ga Ga, Adele, Rhianna, Maroon 5. Rock anthems by AC/DC, Kiss, White Stripes, Kings of Leon are performed with incomparable ghusto! Old classics by Neil Diamond, Tina Turner, and even the odd Country anthem is thrown in for good measure! From the heights and thrills of up-tempo, to slower songs that will take the mood down, but will bring everyone to their feet in awe, respect and admiration. Karina's version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujia" is performed with powerful precision and raw emotion, and D'arcy's beautiful, unique rendition of Etta James "At Last"will leave an everlasting impression on all. 

The Souljers are a soul-stirring blend of powerhouse vocals, spine tingling harmonies, a sensational horn section, and dynamic performance. Their "all-out", "100% live" show makes for a thrilling and unforgettable experience. 

Formed in 2004 by ambitious band leader, Marty - the challenge to the band members was made clear. They were to become the number one event band in Canada and beyond. Consequently, the Souljers unanimously strive for utmost excellence, and their fantastic performances are testament to their ambitions.
