I would not hesitate to recommend the Westside Soul Surfers to anyone seeking a professional, super talented and overall good-time group."

Keith CareyCharlevoix Summer Concert Series

"Westside Soul Surfers promised to bring us a crowd and rock the house and WOW! did they deliver on their promise ... great vocals, great musicians, great song selections, great stage presence, big crowd on the Saturday night of our annual Labor Day festival. We can only hope that they'll hold a spot on their calendar for us again next year!"

Rebecca Byrnes JohnsonMuskegon Shoreline Spectacular

"All I can say is WOW! I book bands for many festival and events and I haven't had a bigger or better response to any band I have booked. The Westside Soul Surfers are crowd pleasers and sure to leave your patrons slapping you on the back for 'booking that band'."

Tim LipanMuskegon Summer Celebration

"We love the energy that the Westside Soul Surfers bring to our Tiki Bar Crowd. There is nothing like watching a full restaurant get up off of their seat and dance in the middle of the afternoon on Sunday! Not may bands can accomplish that! Always a great time and great preformace. The Westside Soul Surfers have truly become a part of our Dockers family!"
