"Soul Drive were a fantastic and professional group to work with. They played at our small wedding reception and travelled to a private residence. They coordinated in advance and were organized with their set-up to make everything easy for us. Fatima has an incredible voice and range, and the rest of the band were amazing musicians to accompany her. Their list was varied and fun; we are so pleased they were able to be a part of our special day!"

"We are so glad that Soul Drive drove down to Puglia, Italy to perform at our wedding in June 2022. They played the music that is nearest and dearest to our hearts! All of our guests were so impressed with their performance and thought Fatimah was an excellent singer, verifiably soulful, and a charismatic lead. The band was funky and entertaining; clearly experts in their craft. We appreciated how easy they were to communicate with, and also their accommodation for rebooking us a year later due to a COVID postponement. Grazie mille to Soul Drive! We will always remember how great you made our special day!"

"Soul Drive were absolutely fantastic. They all performed so well, so that every guest was jubilant about them. We were so happy we chose them, not just for the performance but also for their flexibility. We were quite last minute in several things and they still accommodated us fully. We can’t talk of them highly enough! A special thanks to Fatima, she has such a beautiful voice, and Dario who really helped getting everything organised. We loved having you all and you played a big part in making the day so memorable for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"I apologise for my delay in writing this review, we had been in Italy for a week after the event and have now just gotten over the shock of real life. The band and its members were everything and more than we hoped. We can’t praise Soul Drive enough for helping make our wedding day in Tuscany the best party ever! They put on a super fun, high energy and talent packed show to remember forever. The band was impressive, and professional. Fatimah’s vocals and presence were over the top wonderful. This was pro level musicianship. We planned an Italian wedding from the US, booking bands and venues sight unseen can be a little nerve racking. FixTheMusic and the band members were both easy to reach and quick with communication to answer questions. Fatimah also helped coordinate with the venue owner and planned day of set up independently. Overall, this was a great experience and I can’t recommend Soul Drive enough. I would gladly seek them out again anytime in Rome. Thanks so much, Mike & Anissa.
