It was great to work with you, easy, easy and easy! The band is fantastic, the singer (you of course) are amazing, and such a great way of scheduling the songs! It all worked incredibly well, thank you. And the dancers were amazing! Thank you for organizing them to be part of the evening, it really added one more element of fun.
I am sure that the Barry Shaw Orchestra and Unique will remain at the top of the list of bands for the hospital to call upon for our fundraising Gala! Looking forward to working with you again!

I can't tell you how many people said they just LOVED the band and it was THE party of the year! It was such a pleasure working with you and your team and I absolutely loved the dancers...they were a class act! I am sure we will see each other again at some event in the Bow Valley...

Banff Mineral Springs Hospital Gala
Thank you so much! The wedding was absolutely fantastic. Really You and Unique Soul were incredible. All of our guests got out on the dance floor and had the time of their lives. We both danced most of the night away together. Honestly I don't think I have ever heard a band in Calgary that can rival Unique Soul! The song that they performed with our daughter was excellent and was enjoyed by all. All three of the singers were very funny and engaging. Seriously a great and fun band! Please pass on our thanks to each and every member of the band and let them know how much we enjoyed each and every moment that they played. We would without hesitation recommend them.
Again thank you so much for making our wedding a night to remember!

I wanted to let you know how appreciative we are of the amazing show you and your band put on at our Wedding. It was more than we had hoped for and we've had nothing but outstanding feedback from all our guests including "The BEST music I've ever seen and heard at a wedding" from multiple people. You kept our guests (and us!) on the dancefloor until the bitter end!
Thanks so much!
