Trust Pilot Reviews
“Apollo Soul performed at our wedding at Merrydale Manor on 24th November 2019. They were AMAZING! They got the crowd going and the dance floor was full all night!
From the very first email, right through to the event, Andy was nothing but professional and took the time to understand our vision for the day and how we wanted it to be.
Thank you to all of the band who made the day the best day of our lives. We’ll be forever grateful! ”
