vancouver bands 604-603-8032


Words cannot express how amazing this band is! They made our Gala a tremendous
success and are worth every penny we paid for them. Absolutely phenomenal singers and
playing... and they know how to keep everyone dancing! They can play anything and make
it sound better than the recording artist. They were so interactive with people on the dance
floor and they truly made the party!
We were recommended them by Danny Hooper, our MC and newspaper columnist, who
described them as the best special event band he had seen in his 40 years in the
entertainment industry". Was he ever right!
Right from our first conversation with band leader Marty Robson, they ensured that every
detail was covered and delivered like no other. I have truly never met such genuine people
whose goal is to entertain and please their audience.
Ten Souljers were the perfect band for our fund-raising event and I highly and
unreservedly recommend them for any upscale event. You will NOT be disappointed!!

Wow Ten Souljers!!!
Thank you so much for your phenomenal performance at my clients event. You made me look so good!  I am getting calls every day complimenting me on my choice of band and how they will never forget the atmosphere you created. You are an event planner’s dream!!  You bill yourselves as Canada’s #1, and I have to say, totally justifiably. I have worked with many, many high end special event bands, but you are the very best by a long mile. Your stage presence, crowd interactions and chemistry up there are simply incredible. The songs you performed were better than the originals!
On behalf of myself and my entire team, Thank you!!

Shaw Cablesystems Reference (Biggest Corporate Event in Vancouver)

Shaw Cablesytstems and Shaw Media held their annual Christmas Party for 3500 people at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre this past December 2012. Marty Robson contacted us in early Spring to see if we would be interested in booking his group - Ten Souljers. As you can understand it is very important for our party's success to have a big band with great sound. So before booking it was imperative that we hear them first. Marty was great at providing many opportunites for us to experience the band - and upon hearing and meeting the group - we were suitably impressed enough to make the booking.

From there on Marty was great about staying in touch throughout the rest of the Fall. He created a fabulous play list that provided enough range to satisfy our huge crowd (which has very diverse tastes). We were impressed with the fact they came with new top hits as well as many from the 80's - which appeals to a large part of our staff.Marty was more than willing to let us direct the music choices and he also worked in conjuction with our DJ's to ensure there was no duplication.

The end result? A fabulous night was had by all! The dance floor was rocking from the opening song through to the close. Marty even arranged for an 11th player! to amp up the horn section. Great energy on stage the whole night! We totally recommend Ten Souljers for your next corporate event.

Hearts for Healthcare

Every year for the past 5years, Hearts for Healthcare has hosted a fund raising event to raise funds to improve Cold Lake healthcare. Every year, we hire a band to entertain the guests. This year the event was held at The Energy Centre, Cold Lake. After conducting extensive research, and upon recommendation from another health care trust, we elected to hire Ten Souljers, a ten piece band from Vancouver as our band for 2014.

The event was a resounding success! Ten Souljers initiated a truly sensational atmosphere and generated what I can only describe as an enormous response from the audience.  They have an inherent ability to create excitement and never at any of our events have I heard an audience sing and cheer and be as enthusiastic as they were on this occasion. The band’s energy is undisputable, and their performance level as high as I have ever witnessed.

The dance floor was packed with people with their arms held high, from the moment they took the stage until their parting song, and the noisy reaction from the crowd was rewarded with a great encore number which evoked an amazing response! The bands diversity and range of material appeals to all demographics, with something for everyone, from classic 60's to 90's all the way through to current top 40 hits.

Ten Souljers are quite simply the best event band I have ever worked with and their mantle "Canada's #1 Event Band" is testament to their undoubted ability and high performance level.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Ten Souljers for any event!

Hi Marty,

Having the Ten Souljers perform at my daughter, Debi's wedding reception completely made the event. All of our guests have commented on how they have never been to one with such an amazing band. One guy even said his own wedding wasn't nearly as much fun but not to tell his wife that!!

As the Mom, I appreciate also how professional and friendly the entire transaction went. From booking to invoicing to being completely on time to final billing - outstanding!!! You guys just ROCK in everything you touch!!

All that said, I now have my youngest daughter, Deidre Wong getting married and we can't imagine a reception without the Ten Souljers. We finally found a venue which is The Cove Resort in Kelowna. The only date they have available for 2013 is July 13th. Are you available? If not, we will book a date in June 2014 - would you be available then? If so, is there a weekend that is better than any other? Also, what would the cost be for you to perform in Kelowna?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

thanks so much!

Hey Marty,

"The polls are in on our wedding! We asked our guests what their favourite thing was at our wedding. Was it the food, the décor, the ceremony? Almost 80% of our guests said that the BAND at the reception was the highlight of their night. We both agree with them. Ten Souljers blew everyone away from the second they took the stage. People that we didn't think liked to dance were on the floor…and most for the entire night until they kicked us all out!  Thank you for all the booty shakin' memories."

I just wanted to thank you for the unbelievable performance that Ten Souljers made at our wedding! One of the most important things we wanted for our wedding was a band that would play good music that our guests would enjoy and your band fulfilled every wish! Your energy and liveliness really took our reception up to another level. All our guests were raving about you and thought you were amazing and people kept asking where we found such a fantastic band! We have never been to a wedding where so many guests danced until the bitter end and had so much fun doing so!  Arranging with you and booking you was seamless and you were always quick to answer my emails and to offer advice to make our reception that much better!

Thank you!
Bessie and Steve


My wife and I had been looking for live band to play for our daughter's wedding in Vancouver and after hearing 'tensouljers' play at a local club, we knew they would be ideal for our outdoor setting.  We weren't disappointed. The guests were blown away by the band's sound and very danceable selections.  We had many fine comments from the guests.  We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to complete any special occasion.

Hi Marty

It has been almost a month since my daughter's wedding and friends and family are still raving about the performance given by Ten Souljers!

Marty and Ten Souljers created the perfect romantic setting for
the ceremony, including performing songs that had personal meaning to
the family.  They then seamlessly transitioned into a small ensemble and set the
mood for the cocktail reception.  Ten Souljers learned and
performed a special arrangement of Cosmic Love for the first dance, which took everyone's breath away.  I found that Marty's arrangement was even better than the original!

The party really started when they kicked off the dancing portion of
the evening after dinner!  The dance floor was never empty once the
Ten Souljers took the stage, expertly reading the crowd and truly
entertaining in every sense of the word.  The Ten Souljers did a
fantastic job of performing a swing medley which everyone loved.  At
the end of their final set, everyone cheered for an encore, something
I have never seen at a wedding before.

Thank you to the Ten Souljers for your professionalism and fantastic
performance.  You truly made it a day to remember and were a pleasure
to work with.  You have officially set the bar for wedding bands among our friends
and family.

Marty Robson was able to provide us with a perfect turnkey operation.
He coordinated and organized every aspect of the performance down to
the smallest detail.  He has the talent, skill and professionalism to deliver a performance that was impressive even to me, a retired large-scale event coordinator.

All the best!

Dear Marty,

I am writing to thank you sincerely for the unbelievable performance by Ten Souljers at our wedding. Your excellent musicianship, your energy, and your interaction with the guests, both on and off stage made my wedding truly memorable. Thanks to you guys, I am constantly being told by our friends and guests that it was the best wedding they have ever attended. You were the perfect end to a fabulous day and everyone, without exception, had so much fun.
All ten of you guys are so friendly and approachable – a joy to work with.

It was important to both myself and Simon to find a band that would be able to cater to different musical tastes, and one that to some extent would work with us in terms of preferences. You did all of that – and more.
Thank you also for all of your rapid and courteous communication and for doing everything you could to ensure everything went down as smoothly as possible.

You truly are the perfect band, and your efforts will never be forgotten.

If you ever require a reference for a wedding, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Yours Sincerely,
Jill Madden


My new wife and I are two of the band's biggest fans.  They just tore the house down at our wedding with everything from classics (eg Billie Jean, Don't Stop Believing) to the latest hits (eg Blurred Lines, Get Lucky) and everything in between.  Between sets the band remarkably learned an entirely new song on the fly and performed it for the first time at the request of some of my friends (Ginuwine's Pony, sure it's like 3 notes on the electronic keyboard, but still).  In addition to their 2 part set, they played an opening song to introduce the wedding party, one for the cake cutting (actually a beautiful acoustic version of Florence and the Machine's Cosmic Love), two songs for the wedding games, one each for the garter and bouquet toss, and one for the first dance.

The sound of the 10 piece brass band is so impressive and had our guests dancing all night.  The two female leads are ultra talented, and no one can match the enthusiasm of their band leader, Marty.  Our venue featured another wedding reception that had a DJ, and I'm told by some interlopers that their party fizzled.   Before you consider another band or going with a DJ over a band, I'd check out Ten Souljers, their public performance schedule is on their facebook page, and if they are working a bunch of private events, if you contact them, they will try to get you in to watch them.

On the business side of things, Marty is simply the best.  He was the least stressful part of the wedding.  Ultra responsive from his smartphone, a refreshing contrast to some of our other vendors who we had to stalk then beat over with a stick to get an answer.  He is happy to accommodate any special song requests and where he couldn't he was quick to suggest alternatives.

I'd recommend Ten Souljers to anyone for any corporate event, wedding, bar mitzvah, whatever.
