"Hi Tom, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for the performance on Saturday. I'm so sorry I didn't catch you at the end, I was having a bus issue I had to deal with! Everyone loved the music and it was perfect for all our younger guests, as well as the older ones. Thank you so much to the band for learning all I want for Christmas because it was one of my favourite moments and I know how last minute the request was. We really appreciate it. Thank you for making it all so seamless and being so flexible when the timings changed! All the best, Lindsey and Graeme."

"Hi Tom, Thank you so much for helping to make Ilana and Adam's wedding such an amazing day. From the Israeli dancing to the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond you were sensational. Everyone has been talking about how amazing the band was...and you were simply awesome. I am particularly grateful that you learned the Israeli dancing and blew the roof off with your performance. It was unbelievably good and it came across like you had been doing it for years. Also, the jazz trio was excellent and provided a terrific atmosphere throughout dinner. You personally have been terrific to work with and I cannot thank you enough. Much appreciated and best wishes, Lionel."

"What a fantastic evening The Scottish Soul Collective provided for us! From the start they were so easy to work with and played our first dance song to perfection. Such talented singers and musicians and the tunes kept coming all evening. What an incredible selection of songs that got everyone of all ages dancing. We’ve been asked so many times about booking them by our guests. We all had so much fun all evening because they looked like they were having a blast performing. Thanks to Tom and all the band for arguably the best part of our day, after getting married of course!"

"The Scottish Soul Collective, specifically Tom, were amazing to us during what for many has been a difficult time (organising a wedding during the pandemic). We booked the band as an 8 piece a couple of years ago, after seeing them play a few times in Edinburgh at the Grass Market. Covid struck and restrictions were ever-changing. This left us in a position where we felt the best thing to do was to cancel a lot of our vendors including the band. They were very understanding and were so good about it that we wanted to go back to them once things started to settle. When it came to it, we did just that and got back in touch with Tom. Restricted by numbers we could only have 3 band members. We really wanted a jazzy feel to the band so Tom suggested a sax, guitar and vocalist. A strange mix but they made it work, even sending us some demos. Come our wedding day, The Scottish Soul Collective arrived well on time. We were running late but they rolled with it, set up quickly and played an amazing unique version of Kodaline - the one including sax for our first dance. A performance we will never forget. With restrictions they could not play loud music for us to dance to but their selection of music for the background was ace and they interacted with guests well during their breaks. We are hoping to have a proper party in a few years once covid is over and will 100% approach these guys again. Couldn't rate them highly enough."

"It’s hard to put into words how happy we were to find The Scottish Soul Collective. We booked both the jazz duo and the full 9-piece band, and we couldn’t have been happier. From the first enquiry right through to the last song, Tom and the band were professional, timely, and cared so much about our day."

"Look no further, this is the band you need for your wedding! These guys played at our wedding at Winton Castle and blew everyone away. From young to old the dance floor was filled all night. A fantastic experience and one which we will never forget. Professional musicians and so very, very friendly. Quite simply, they are OUTSTANDING!"
