Diane & Keith Brooks – 40th Anniversary Party

Reference: We have seen Rob perform as The Soul Man many times and knew as soon as we decided to have a party to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary that we wanted Rob to sing as Soul & Motown is our music. He didn’t disappoint – he was fantastic. Everyone was up dancing it made our night something special. I received numerous messages the next day saying what a good night everyone had. So thanks Rob for a brill night and one to remember.

Kevin Kaye: Seal Military

Reference: I booked Rob for my retirement bash from the fire service and as a keen soul fan wondered if he would be up to the job knowing how difficult it can be to copy original acts. I’m pleased to say he did a great job with an amazing variety of soul sounds – Motown, Northern and Classic Soul from the 60’s and Funk, Disco and Smooth Soul from the 70’s and 80’s – which had them all dancing the night away. I also received many comments from guests after the event indicating they had really enjoyed the night and feel this was in no small part down to Rob’s excellent contribution. Well done!!

Country Cottage Hotel

ReferenceReview: We asked the hotel to recommend someone to sing at our family party and they recommended The Soul Man so I contacted Rob. On the night, he covered various musical eras and styles, first as his alternative persona, Billy Rocca, and later as The Soul Man. It worked brilliantly. Rob, thank you for making our evening such a great success.

Review: Having originally heard of Rob as The Soul Man from the owner of Goodliffe’s Bistro and faced with working through the minefield of booking a quality act for our family and friends Xmas party I had no hesitation booking Rob after looking at his website and talking to him. Our first party booking with The Soul Man filled the dance-floor from the first tune to the last. What a great choice we made! Rob’s delivery of Soul and Motown classics made for an all around successful evening – young and not so young.

Looking for an act to kick-start my Captain’s year, I had no hesitation in inviting Rob to once again entertain and fill the dance-floor. The Soul Man set the tone for a great season at the golf club with a full clubhouse and great bar sales. Our social committee booked Rob as his Billy Rocca persona (chart pop music 50’s to 90’s) for our prestigious annual black-tie dinner and, as ever, he did not disappoint, doubling ticket sales from our previous year and delivering a varied set of chart hits from across the decades – he certainly hit the right note for our members. Thanks again for helping make all the events special and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Sharon & Lynne’s Joint 50th Birthday Party.

Review: : A top act and a great guy, Rob did a superb show. He had everyone up dancing right from the start with a good mixture of Tamla Motown + Classic Soul & Northern Soul songs. Exactly what we wanted. He made our party a night to remember and a happy trip down memory lane – what a buzz!! Happily passed on his details, as so many have asked. Thanks, Rob – you made it a fantastic night for us all!!

Nick & Marilyn Cunningham.

Review: : We first saw The Soul Man at a favourite venue in Loughborough and had such a great night, we make a point of looking out for him returning so we can book in. We hired Rob to do his Soul and Motown tribute show for our retirement party. He made it a great evening, filling the dance floor with his evocative performance of Tamla Motown, Soul and Disco. Several guests commented on how good he was and one even said she’d like him to sing at her wedding; now all she’s got to do is find a groom!!! The Soul Man is very professional. He turned up early to set up and was still there as the last guests left. As well as being a great entertainer, he’s a really nice person. If you want a great night’s entertainment, we suggest you book The Soul Man.

Christie Barnes: Bride and Wedding Reception Organiser

Reference: The Soul Man was exactly that; Soul all the way!! He was amazing!!!!!! Came so early to set up and played great music to get everyone in the mood. He catered to our needs and even learned our first dance song so we could have a great personal first dance! Everyone commented on how amazing he was and they didn’t actually realise it was him singing – they thought it was a CD he was that good!! Many people have asked for his details and i have happily passed it on! Thank you for making our day special.

Tracey Raybould: Portland College Fundraising Executive

Reference: The Soul Man has provided excellent value for money at a number of our fundraising events here at Portland College. He is a great entertainer with real talent who gets everyone on the dance floor right from the beginning of the evening, dancing, singing along and in the party spirit…we even had comments like, ‘I thought he was a DJ playing the real records, then I realised he was actually singing!’ Everyone enjoys his well known, classic and fun repertoire…he is truly The Soul Man!

April Ryan: 50th Birthday Party Organiser

Reference: The Soul Man attended a 50th birthday party for me. He has a real talent for knowing the music people want to hear. He is very attentive to your needs and made it a very special night for the birthday boy and all who attended. I would not hesitate to book him again for any occasion. He is a genuinely nice person.

Hayley Bladon: Bride and Wedding Party Organiser

Reference: The perfect entertainment for our special day. Everyone was up and dancing the whole night thanks to The Soul Man and his excellent song choice and charisma. Young and old thoroughly enjoyed The Soul Man and we will definitely be recommending him to everyone we know! A Soultastic night to remember!
