Just wanted to let you now that I was in the audience at Riff’s on Saturday 14th October. I have been going to live gigs for over 30 years and have seen some great acts, from world famous names to local bands, but I have never had more fun at a gig than I did on Saturday. Your repertoire covers the very best of soul and R&B and your performance really does justice to the songs. I am really looking forward to seeing you again.

Just a quick line to say how much we enjoyed your set at the Nuffield. Being old enough to have gone to the Birdcage in the sixties we can say that your performance equals that of the top club bands then - i.e The Action, Jimmy James and the Vagabonds Chris Farlowe etc. Well done for providing authentic soul music.

I just wanted to thank you very much for the fantastic performance on Saturday night. Everyone that I have spoken to has said how much they enjoyed your music and I would hope that you may get some bookings as a result, certainly I would have no hesitation in hiring yourselves again or recommending you to anyone. In fact some attendees have requested whether we could all come along again next weekend so that we can have another good evening!

Thank you once again and I hope that you all enjoyed playing as much as we enjoyed listening and dancing.

We just wanted say a huge thank you to Madison Soul for making our wedding celebrations more than we could have ever wished for, you guys were absolutely fantastic. The sound check alone had many people talking with excitement as they strolled around the garden, so when the time came for the real thing, with you all dressed to impress, some real cracking opening numbers soon filled the dance floor making our marquee wedding experience unforgettable.
Thanks again.
