Hi Katie!

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for all your help with our Holiday Party. The band was spectacular as always, and made the party. We had countless complements on them!! Please pass this along to them. We will definitely want to have them back again next year! I’ll let you know when I have a date.

Thanks so much & Happy Holidays!

Souled Out was absolutely perfect for our wedding reception. They were entertaining and assisted us keeping to a schedule during the reception. They graciously took requests from our guests and our guests had nothing but outstanding compliments for the band. We are very grateful for their time and effort to make our wedding evening extremely special! Thank you, Jordan and Aubree McGee

Lisa and I thought the band was tremendous!  As my sister pointed out, very few people left early as often happens with receptions. They were out there on the dance floor!

Katie was the easiest person to work with and really took the time to make sure everything was perfect for our wedding. Souled out did AMAZING and we had so many compliments on the band. We were shocked at just how good they were and would recommend them any day for any event. We would love to see them again outside of our wedding.

Tiffany Hughes - Bride

We received a tremendous amount of positive feedback about Souled Out! Our guests had a wonderful time at our reception, and we can attribute much of that to the band. I will be honest, the night is somewhat of a blur for me, but I recall hearing the band may not have taken any breaks. If so, we really appreciate them giving it their all and the energy they gave to make our night so enjoyable for our guests and us.

I wanted to echo Caitlin's email real quick. The band was awesome! They did an amazing job and people have been seriously texting and letting us know how impressed they were with them. This definitely helped create an amazing atmosphere for the best night of our lives! Thanks for all your hard work with the process!

Thank you,

C + S

Not waiting for your inquiry.  I have to tell you! 

No words can begin to describe how happy I am with this band.  By far, the most congenial, talented, energetic, entertaining, professional group of musicians I have EVER worked with.  Jeff, Steve and the female vocalist, the male lead vocalist – well, all of them A-MAZING! 

There were no divas, theatrical capes, difficult personalities or drama.  Goodness, with everything else the planner has to deal with what a gift all that is!!!!

I wish I had a million weddings booked right now – I would hire Souled Out for every single one of them and pay for the band out of my own pocket.  I am spoiled forever. I mean it!

Thank you, Katie!

Warm regards,

Epic time! Everyone loved the band! They f----ing nailed it! My in-laws can't stop talking about how great the band was and that everyone danced all night!!!

Thank you soooooo much!

Matt Rippey - Groom

Thank you all for caring about our special day as if it was your own. Your understanding of the many requests we asked for and tenderness to capture all the little details meant so much. We absolutely loved having you all be a part of a day we will never forget. Thank you again for everything you all did for us. Your band has such great talent and we can see this job is your passion. Everyone of our guests went on and on about how fun the band was! Your songs and entertainment kept the party going :) !!

Never forget the reason you all fell in love with this career because it is that reason, in our opinion, makes you all the best :) Thank you for performing on our wedding day.

With Love,

Souled Out was fantastic! With this being the first time that we have done this event, we weren't sure on attendance and how much space we needed for various activities. Regardless of all of that, Souled Out brought the party! The event was a huge hit and I believe a huge contributor to that success was the entertainment that Souled Out provided us all night. We only intended on this event to be a one-time celebration. However, the overwhelming feedback that we have heard from our patrons, has us considering making it an annual event. We will have a meeting later this month to discuss and determine the possibility of this. We may look at making it during a different time of year (even though New Year's was REALLY fun!).

Thank you for your email. And believe me, if we determine that this event is to happen again, we will certainly call you to get Souled Out on hold for us!

Thanks again. We appreciate everything.

Amanda Moore - Moore Public School Foundation

The band was fantastic.  They made the reception a great time for everyone involved.  Their music was performed flawlessly and they were extremely entertaining and engaging with the crowd.  I can't recommend them highly enough. 
Thank you for your patience and assistance getting everything set up.  I sincerely appreciate your help throughout the process. 

Thanks again, and I look forward to booking Souled Out again for my next party.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you! In short, we were 100% pleased with Souled Out at our wedding on June 13. Old and young commented on how great the band was and everyone had a blast dancing! The dinner music was perfect and the volume was great – my dad was so glad we weren’t blown out during dinner so everyone could still talk, and then the band cranked it up for the dance part. Overall, it was great!

We were beyond pleased with Souled Out!! We received so many compliments on the entertainment. Thank you so much!! You helped make our wedding a success! I hope the band had as much fun as we did! We will highly recommend them to anyone! 

Thank you, Cara

EVERYONE LOVED Souled Out!! They really were just PERFECT!

Besides some of the "older" generation thinking they were too loud it could not have been more WONDERFUL!

Very fun when they were playing their instruments and walking around on the dance floor.

Would absolutely recommend them !

Thanks so much!


Dana Gordon - Mother of the Groom - Dark/Gordon wedding

Souled Out was fantastic.  We had around 300 folks at the Cain's and everyone had smiles on their faces the whole evening.  At the end of the night, with a still decent crowd, the crowd begged for an encore and they allowed our son and daughter in law to sing "Friends in Low Places" on stage after which our son crowd surfed...enough said as to evidence that fun was had by ALL.

Rick & Joyce Deffenbaugh - Parents of the Groom

Souled Out was great! Definitely a talented group with a wide variety of music (not to mention they hit Uptown Funk on the damn nose!). 


Christopher Cowden - Catholic Charities Oklahoma (Green Tie Gala)
"Souled Out provided the wedding reception dance music for our daughter at the Embassy Suites in Norman. This superb dance band is led by Jeff Kidwell, who along with his superb horn section, rhythm section and singers (as well as professional lighting and sound-system), provided the perfect party ambiance that we wanted for this memorable occasion. We had guests from several other states, and everyone raved about Souled Out's outstanding performance and dance music. Members of our immediate entourage also included several active professional musicians from other states (Texas, Arkansas) as well as Oklahoma, and Souled Out "rocked"! 
Our daughter is an OU graduate, performed in the OU Marching Band, and had many other her former band members at the party. They loved the sound of Souled Out and told us that it was a great party atmosphere because of Souled Out. The dance-floor was filled to capacity--young and old. They appealed to our collective wedding party guests from age 8 to 88 with their wide variety of high energy music from Michael Buble' to Chicago to Motown to Country. 
Their playlist is outstanding, and they were very easy to work with for special selections. The individual members really got into their own musicmaking--it was obvious that Souled Out enjoys what it does.
I would recommend Souled Out for any wedding reception or any other special occasion. 
Thank you and congratulations to Souled Out.
Dr. Jim and Doris Lambert, Lawton - parents of bride

I hope your new year has been wonderful so far! I cannot tell you how impressed I was with Souled Out. They are professional in every sense of the word. They are extremely talented and the guests absolutely loved them. But I was most impressed with their ability to create an experience that seemed flawless from everyone's perspective while rolling with the changes in timing and schedule from my end. I am very grateful. Please let them know how pleased I am and how wonderful they were to work with.

Happy New Year! I hope we work together again soon.

Holly Hargrave Jarolim - Bride

The Gala was a huge success and everyone LOVED Souled Out! Please let the
band know how much we appreciated their performance. And we will definitely
be back in touch with you about other Jim Thorpe events in the future.

"Souled Out" was absolutely wonderful. Girls and Alums LOVED them. Both of my daughters want them at their wedding reception.  I would recommend them to anyone.  You may use me for a reference. We booked them because we almost always go to the Bachelors' Club Ball, so I knew exactly what we were getting.

"Souled Out is such a blast! Their music is so fun to dance to and listen to. I only wish that they could have played at my wedding reception!"

Lauren Nelson, KWTV News 9 Anchor and Miss America 2007

Souled Out couldn't have been better! Everyone had a great time. Many guests
have complimented the music and Preston and I couldn't have been more

Thanks for all your help!

"Hi Guy's, Just wanted to let you know that you are awesome!!! The New Years Eve Party at the Embassy Suites in Norman was wonderful and we enjoyed it tremendously. Your interaction with all of us on the dance floor was unique and fun. Hope to see you all very soon again. Cheers, JR"



"Souled Out" was an absolute hit!  I knew they would be:)  Everyone loved them and they did a wonderful job. I'm excited to go back to the Jazz Lab and hear them again.  I'm recommending them to everyone I know!  Thanks again for all your help!  The wedding was a huge success!!   :)

"Just wanted you and the Souled Out Band to know how much we enjoyed your amazing performance last week. Your music was perfect for the wide variety of ages that were our guests and EVERYONE had a great time! The Band has so much fun playing their music and performing that it translates to the whole crowd! Look forward to you playing for us again SOON!"

"We had Souled Out at our Country Club for a Charitable Golf Tournament. They played music for all age groups here to enjoy. They kept the people on the dance floor all night and were very involved with the crowd! We enjoyed them very much!!!"

Julie Fulton - Events Coordinator, Ponca City Country Club

"It doesn’t matter if you have yummy food, festive decorations and A list guests, Souled Out will make your party the event of the social season!  The members are professional, punctual, lively, multi talented and play all the tunes you want to hear. From their preppy attire to their humorous stage presence, Souled Out will rock your event!"
