“We cannot thank Memphis Soul Revue enough for making our wedding reception incredible! Truly the best band ever! We have had so many comments from our friends and family on how good the were and how they’ve never had so much fun at a wedding before. We were worried people wouldn’t dance enough but our guests never stopped dancing until the end of the night. MSR was amazing the with the crowd and even let the father of the groom take over the drums for a song. We would definitely recommend MSR for anyone looking for a great band. Can’t say enough about how much we loved them!”

Memphis Soul Revue was Amazing!! Everyone loved them. Extremely entertaining and energetic!!!!
Memphis Soul Revue is the BEST band in the Mid-South. Their range of music appeals to all ages and any crowd. They sound AMAZING, they look AMAZING, and they know how to truly ENTERTAIN! If you want a top notch band don’t hestitate when looking at MSR, they truly are the BEST and worth every penny! Furthermore, RAM is great company and always a pleasure to work with!
“Memphis Soul Revue was the highlight of an otherwise top shelf wedding. To start they played very nice, unobtrusive music during the cocktail hour at an appropriate volume. Then they MC’d and played our requested traditional first dance songs with ease and grace. And when the party started, the party started! From the first dances through the end of the evening, the dance floor was packed. They maintained an energy and level of showmanship that I’ve never seen at any other event! They played our requests from Elton John to Nat King Cole. Additionally, and this is what was so nice, we left them to their discretion with the song list except a list of “please do NOT play” songs. They held to our request, and the songs they chose really kept us going. We are still getting compliments about the band, especially the lead singer, whose ability to channel Prince was priceless. I would recommend this band to anyone who wants the best in talent, showmanship and professionalism. A thousand thanks for a great night!”
Danny & Katy Mallon – Wedding Reception
“I cannot thank you enough for providing us with such excellent talent! The band was just PHENOMINAL!!!!! Last night with Memphis Soul revue was outstanding! Such a talented band. They were SO energetic and professional. The crowd REALLY loved them. Thanks again for adding the horns!! Such a GREAT night and such GREAT talents all the way around! Thanks for EVERYTHING!!!”
Leslie Potter – Catering Sales Manager, The Peabody Memphis
“We are so pleased with the performance of Memphis Soul Revue. The band was great and their music selection appealed to the entire spectrum of guests attending the event. The band was so good, the guests stayed at the reception to the end and even begged for more. The dance floor was full from the time played the band played it’s first song after the ceremonial first dance of the married couple to the last set.
Memphis Soul Revue truly made my daughter’s wedding reception one to remember. Many of our guest commented that it was the best wedding reception they have ever attended. Memphis Soul Revue helped create a fun atmosphere that I have never experienced at a wedding reception. I would highly recommend the band to any bride’s father that wants his daughter’s wedding reception to be a memorable event.”
David Boerner (Father of Bride) – Wedding Reception
RAM provided a stress free experience. All communications were immediately answered or answered within a few hours. The contract was simple and succinct. Nothing was hidden. We hired Memphis Soul Revue who superbly delivered all our requests. We requested two songs which were not on their playlist and they performed them flawlessly. We would not hesitate to contract with RAM, again.
“Our experience with RAM Entertainment was extremely satisfactory. It was so simple to book the band–Memphis Soul Review–and all the “business” part of the transaction was pain free. I think done entirely via email.
The band was recommended by my daughter’s Ole Miss friends for her 21st birthday and they were perfect. According to her recommendation, there was no other choice—MSR was the ONLY band to have for her party. And that proved to be true. They played all the right music at the appropriate time, more “mellow” during cocktails and then really revved it up later, and the dance floor was packed! Our daughter was very pleased and so were we. We cannot wait to hire them again!
Meredith Holbrook – Private Party
“We used Memphis Soul Revue for our wedding and they were fantastic. The songs they played were great and there was a good mixture of new songs as well as classic ones. We had a lot guests that came from all over the country and all of them told us that they had never heard a band that good. Memphis Soul Revue helped make our wedding even that more special!”
Bethany Goldin – Wedding Reception
“The best party EVER! Memphis Soul Review was AMAZING! They kept the crowd
going all night long. Our 25th Wedding Anniversary was so complete, I can not
tell you one thing that we could have done to make this night more special for
our family and friends. My husband and I had never heard this band before so
we were a little hesitant, NO MORE. I would highly recommend them for any
function that you want to have a FANTASTIC, FUN time! They were truly “the
party”! We LOVE them! I think the band had fun as well. I would definitely
book them again and I plan to recommend them to all our friends.
Everyone at RAM Entertainment were very professional and easy to work with.”
Marsha Cohn (Mother of Bride) – Wedding Reception
“I cannot tell you how much fun Memphis Soul Review was!!! Everyone thought they were awesome and wanted to know who they were!!! Young and old. Everybody danced the night away.

Lesley A. – Fundraiser
“We had a wonderful experience with Ram entertainment. Everything was very professional and we liked the entertainment form that was sent out so you could choose your song preferences. You couldn’t have a band any better than the “Memphis Soul Revue”. They played exactly what we wanted and interacted so well with the crowd. They made it a real party and all of our guests had a wonderful time.”
Harryette & Wes Bailey – Private Party
“Memphis Soul Revue put the crowning touch on our fundraising event!! I received several comments that when they entered the room, they thought it was a record playing because Gary sounds so much like the singer, Prince. Not only is he a fantastic singer, he is a dynamic performer!! Nikki Parrish blew the roof off the place!! I was extremely impressed with her range. The choice of songs impressed our audience which ranged from 25-70 years of age. Our audience loved the performance and they are requesting them for next year. We knew the band was going to be impressive; they did not disappoint!!”
Valerie D. – Fundraiser
“The first thing I booked after getting engaged was MSR! I completely booked my wedding date around their schedule. The are the best!
I wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work and for helping me book MSR. Everyone has been talking about MSR and what a BIG hit they were! They are amazing at what they do and I couldn’t have imagined anyone doing a better job. MSR made our wedding so memorable and you all were a delight to work with.”
Karrie Branson – Wedding Reception
“The Memphis Soul Revue played for both my son’s wedding in Memphis and my daughter’s wedding at our home in New Albany,and both times I felt they were the single most important ingredient to a successful party. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone! Thanks to RAM Entertainment for working with us on this one.”
Dr. Steve Shirley – Wedding Reception
“Initially planning our wedding, we didn’t know where we wanted it to be or the food we wanted, but we knew we wanted the Memphis Soul Revue to play. The band was amazing. Everyone knows their music is great, they sound great, and they make people want to dance. But for a bride, they are great to work with when planning a wedding. We had a Big Fat Greek-Jewish wedding, and the band really made it come to life. Instead of just putting in a CD, they played the Hava Nagila. The Chicago song we used as our first dance has horns. The band brought in the extra instruments to play the song as it was meant to be played. They played harder than we danced…that is really hard. Russ and the band members really went the extra step to accommodate our requests and make our wedding special. OPA! and MAZEL TOV”
Michele and Jacob Buring – Wedding Reception

Thanks again for making it a special night!
Thomas O. Murchison III – Wedding Reception
“Working with RAM Entertainment and The Memphis Soul Revue was fabulous. The band absolutely made the party. We heard comments from everybody from the youngest to the oldest about how great the band was and how they made the party fun. My daughter, the Bat Mitzvah girl and her friends loved the band. I highly recommend them for Bar & Bat Mitzvah parties.
From the standpoint of booking the band, Russ Madry and Belle Adams were extremely accommodating to work with. I couldn’t recommend them any higher.”
Jonathan Frisch – Bat Mitzvah
“The Memphis Soul Revue was absolutely AWESOME! What a show! Not only are they fantastic performers, but they are great people.

Clay Curtner – Wedding Reception
“The Memphis Soul Revue captured the hearts and feet of all 350 guests at our wedding. It was the “talk” of the reception and the after-party. We had guests from California, Ohio, Arizona, Indiana, Maryland, and several states in between, and all of them were impressed with the sound and performance of the Memphis Soul Revue. I could not have asked for anything more from these musicians. The group met and exceeded all of our expectations! Also, many thanks to Russ and Belle with RAM Entertainment for your professionalism and courtesy throughout the process.”
Doris & Johnny Pryor – Wedding Reception
“Russ and Belle, our Christmas party this year was another huge success! Memphis Soul Revue was even better than last year. Gary and the rest of the gang were terrific.

“RAM, thanks! We had a wonderful wedding reception. The Memphis Soul Revue is a group of top-notch professionals who are technically impressive as well as thoroughly entertaining. We couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable, high-energy performance! They absolutely rock. Our friends were simply blown away. It was nice that they could entertain so well without making themselves too much the center of attention. And they also did a great job with the quieter, instrumental stuff we wanted for the first hour of the reception. As for RAM, I was more than pleased with my interactions with Russ Madry and RAM–very professional, very friendly, and very attentive! Excellent job!”
Jeremy Pflasterer – Wedding Reception

The Memphis Soul Revue is awesome to work with and they make sure all your needs are taken care of and that they have met your guests expectations!”
Elizabeth Moore – Fundraiser
“The Memphis Soul Revue was the best band we have ever had at any formal in the past four years I have been in college! This band was high energy, enthusiastic and involved the audience in the show. In the past, usually by then end of the event the crowd scatters, but as the coordinator of the formal I was so impressed to see the room just as full at the end of the night as it was at the beginning. I credit Memphis Soul Review for this! Thanks so much!”
Courtney Church – Mississippi College Private Party
“RAM Entertainment and the Memphis Soul Revue were a joy to work with! The band played at this year’s Shaun Micheel* Make-A-Wish Golf Classic Pairings Party and our guests enjoyed every minute of play. The band members were friendly, professional, gracious, and willing to help in any way. I would refer this group to anyone hosting an event, however large or small!”
Julianne Brown – Fundraiser
“You all did it again! Great music and wonderful entertainment. Thank you to all for making the party a success. We hope you will be able to make our next one!”
Kelly Brown – Holiday Party
“As co-mother of the bride and the wedding planner for Kate McClure and Jamie Hershey’s wedding, I TOTALLY got caught up and didn’t get to the band members to say how FANTASTIC “The Memphis Soul Revue” was! The lead singer and I had a brief conversation near the end and I got to gush all about them then, but I really missed the opportunity to tell ALL of the band members how great they were! The friends of the bride and groom came from all over, mostly the north, and to have that wonderful soul sound, and done so well, was a real treat to them. I had a hard time getting the bride and groom to leave because they wanted to dance all night! Thanks for being right on target for what we wanted. RAM Entertainment was great to work with and I have recommended yall already to several upcoming brides or folks who are planning events. Thanks, Russ!”
Peggy McClure – Wedding Reception
“The Memphis Soul Revue was everything we had wished for and more!!!! Everyone thought they were the BEST band they had ever heard at a wedding reception and they were asking all about them. Our wedding coordinator said they were great to work with. We could not have been more pleased. I met and thanked two of the members and they were very nice. The band was so important to us and we were so pleased. Before the wedding, I was so excited about the band and kept saying they were going to blow everyone away and they did! We didn’t want the reception to end. It was a pleasure working with you. So, thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for finding a band for us that exceeded our expectations and our standards were high!”
Amy Tibbals – Wedding Reception
“The Memphis Soul Review was absolutely incredible. Everyone had a great time dancing to them. They got the crowd excited, and played an incredibly wide variety all night. Everyone kept coming up to me telling me how much they loved the band, and I’ve had several calls from guests who want to use them for their own wedding. The music was fun, the band was so great to work with, and Russ has been great to work with on booking all of the music. We booked Gary Johns with him too, to use for our cocktail hour, and he did a great job with both. Everything was timed perfectly, and you really don’t have to worry about a thing!”
Elizabeth Humphreys – Wedding Reception
“I just wanted to pass along all of the rave reviews we have received about Memphis Soul Revue! They did an AMAZING job and kept everyone on the dance floor all night.

“Memphis Soul Review did a phenomenal job playing for my wedding reception this past Friday night considering all the chaos of storms, tornadoes, no electricity, paramedics and fire fighters coming to the rescue. And to top it all off no air conditioning! The Memphis Soul Review did not skip a beat and they kept on playing no matter what happened. The Davis and Harris families along with all the guests had a great time dancing and singing through it all. Everyone I have talked to has said that they were the best band they have ever heard. Russ, thank you and the Memphis Soul Review for making my day so wonderful and memorable. I know this will be a wedding that no one will forget!!”
Mrs. Ryan Harris -Wedding Reception
Memphis Soul Revue was AMAZING. It was absolutely perfect and there is not another band out there that is more perfect for a reception. Everyone has asked me who the band was and has told me how wonderful they are. Memphis Soul Revue IS THE BEST WEDDING RECEPTION BAND OUT THERE!!!!!!! Everyone danced the entire night. Tell them thank you and that they are amazing!
Rachel Parker – Wedding Reception
Memphis Soul Revue was absolutely the Bomb!! Our crowd was on the dance floor until the Peabody shut us down at 12:30am. I’m still getting calls about how good they were.
