About Souled Out
Souled Out is an eleven piece band hailing from across south Louisiana. Conceived in 2001, Souled Out has been entertaining audiences with its unique brand of interaction and choreography. Souled Out has entertained wedding receptions, corporate events, Mardi Gras krewes and nightclubs in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee and Texas. Souled Out has earned “Best Band” by the Tri-Parish Times on three separate occasions as voted for by their endearing fan base. Souled Out is a four time WeddingWire.com ‘Couples Choice’ Award Winner (2016, 2017, 2018) in addition to being named ‘Top Rated Online’ based on client reviews from various online wedding resources. In 2018, they were named “Best Cover Band” by The Times of Acadiana. As one writer recently pinned, “Souled Out is the band you’ve always wanted to see….but didn’t! When you attend a Souled Out performance, you’re forced to listen with your eyes wide open!”
If you’re looking to have a band that brings energy, great music AND performs in such way that it brings people together then Souled Out might be your band. Despite the fact that they’ve performed at well over a thousand weddings since 2001, Souled Out has developed a niche of being the band that not only entertains your guest but becomes the “life of the party”. Each and every reception performance is a very personal and unique experience for all of their clients. The goal at every event that we are honored to be a part of what is the vision that the client had during their planning process. Many clients that utilize Souled Out’s services didn’t want the “typical” band – they wanted much more and they choose Souled Out.
