Client Reviews


Hi Sandi,

Adam and I would like to express our up most graduated to you, Daren and the members of the band for making our wedding such a memorable evening.

First of all, we like to thank you, Sandi, for communicating with us effectively and organising everything to make the evening run smoothly.

To Daren and the band, thank you so incredibly much for making the entertainment at our wedding so awesome! We had seen you perform a few times and just had to have you at our wedding.

All of our guests commented on how great you all were! Adam and I were so happy that everyone was on the dance floor dancing, singing and having an awesome time. We wanted our wedding to be a massive party and we definitely got that with Daren and the Soul City Groove there.

Thanks for also organising the background music during meal times as well as playing all the music for the bridal party introduction, speeches and traditional songs.

You guys will definitely be at the top of our list for recommendation.

Thanks once again,

Roslyn and Adam Ioannou


Can you please pass onto the Daren and the rest of the band that they were absolutely amazing. Everyone that we have spoken to loved them J Awesome vocals and sound was just right couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Thank you all from Farm & General and our farming clients.


We would just like to ask that you pass on our many thanks to Darren and  the band for a fantastic night.

We had nothing but compliments about how great the night was.

They were brilliant and we enjoyed every minute of the day.

Once again, thank you very much. The day and night went so smoothly we couldn’t have been happier.

Thank you

Chris and Nicole


We had our wedding at the Crown on the 25th of September 2016 and we were lucky enough to hire Darren Reid and the Soul City Groove to perform. Words can’t explain how happy we were with Darren and the band they were seriously amazing.

My husband and I both loved it so much and it made our night . Darren got the bridal party up on stage and threw some songs into his set that really related to the crowd in front of him. He really made us feel like our wedding was an individual performance for him not just another gig. The feedback from my guests so far is that the band made the night spectacular and I have to agree.

I would absolutely recommend anyone looking for a band not only for a wedding but for any event to get Darren Reid and the Soul City Grove you will not regret it you are in for a night of great talent and a good laugh!

Just letting you know that we had a Social Committee meeting at the Club last week – everyone was thrilled with the outcome of the White Party – apparently, one of the best nights ever at the Club.  You little ripper!!!



The night was a fabulous success and everyone in the room had a great time!  Darren and the crew had the crowd “rocking” from start to finish and the atmosphere in the room was awesome!

Thanks for all your help in getting the band and sound sorted – it is most appreciated.

I would have to say that the performance of Daren Reid & the band was outstanding.

I was concerned that the crowd wouldn’t get up dance. This thought was put out of my mind within 30 seconds of Daren starting.

Please pass my thanks onto him & the band. It was a pleasure to have them up & they certainly made the night memorable for all the right reasons!

Just a note to say that the Band were outstanding last Saturday night!

The absolute highlight of the night and I hope they don’t get ‘discovered’ by some out of towner and leave Perth!

Every single number was incredible and Daren is a real draw card, he had the ladies mesmerised and the guys up dancing.

Thanks so much,



Happy to report to you that the band was absolutely fabulous on Saturday night. The music choice was top notch, the vocals superb, and Daren had the dance floor full most of the night. The music was non-stop and they only a few breaks – Daren assisted with our games and was such a great MC and entertainer for the night – he came around the tables, and got everyone involved and kept the night moving along. We’ve had so much positive feedback, and would be keen to book again.



It was a fantastic night with Daren & the band putting on a great show as always.

I would like to personally thank you all for making it such a successful night and look forward to working with you again in the future.



“Anytime I come to Perth to run an event I will use Daren Reid and the Soul City Groove”



It was a HUGE success! I turned up just after 10pm and walked into the best vibe I have ever felt at one of our functions! Daren and the band did a brilliant job in getting the party revved up and we really enjoyed how they engaged with our guests and even got some of them up on stage to play and sing with the band. It was just perfect for what we wanted out of the event and I’ve got a feeling everyone will be talking about it for a long time.

Thanks for all your help and your professionalism throughout the process.



Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to both of you and of course to Daren Reid and the band members for a fantastic performance at the 2010 Celebration of Women Long Table Lunch on Monday.  We had 550 people, majority of ladies who had a great time, eating, drinking, and then dancing the end of the day away to Daren’s energetic performance – the ladies absolutely loved it. You may see a photo in the next few days of about 100 women on stage with Daren… I walked out from behind the stage to see it, was quite a sight!

One lady even told one of our staff that she doesn’t care about the food or the drinks, she just comes every year to dance!  Please pass on my thanks to Daren and the band, they did a fantastic job as always.



On behalf of the West Australian Ballet and the Black and White Ball committee I would like to thank Daren Reid and the Soul City Groove for your support and commitment which made our event so successful.  We have received so many wonderful comments from guests about the evening including the “best ball they have attended in Perth for a long time!”

An outstanding performance was given by the band and the dance floor was filled instantly – a clear indication the guests were enjoying themselves.
