Quotation marksOnce again thanks for playing the 2008 Carbondale Sunset Concerts Series, Your performance was great, and you all really got the audience of over 2000 people up and dancing. You covered a lot of different classic rock songs from the past which meant that there was something for everyone, young or old."

Quotation marksI am the entertainment chair for the Marshall County Blueberry Festival. For the last three years we have had a rock group by the name of Sojourn Rocs perform at the festival. This year, they performed two shows for us. They are an incredibly talented group of guys and they appeal to all ages. This group puts on a wonderful show. I have seen many entertainers in my time as entertainment chair and there is no one better than these guys out there."

Quotation marksI just wanted to congratulate your group on being sooooo good. I really enjoyed the performance. Yours was the best [at the Bluebery Festival] that I remember in the last 6-7 years! And I wanted to find out if you had a website (you do) so I could follow your group in the future. I will check out your website soon and will forward your info to a few friends. Hope to see you, and Sojourn, again in the future. Keep up the excellent work.”

Quotation marksWhen I was searching for a band to play at my father's 60th birthday party, I needed to try to please, obviously, my father who is a rock and roll junky, but ages 25-82, hard right? Well, you guys did it, Sojourn's Rock'n'Roll Journey brought us all back!! I had many people ask me where I found you guys at, everyone enjoyed themselves! You guys were GREAT and the party was a BIG SUCCESS!! My father was so pleased.”

“You were so accommodating and responsive to our requests. I would definitely recommend Sojourn to anyone looking for a friendly, energetic and talented band for any age group or any event. You boys 'rock'! Sojourn helped to make my father’s 60th something he will always remember !! Thank you."

Quotation marksJust a short note to thank 'Sojourn' for a great performance July 6th at the Gazebo. It was obvious by the audience's response that they enjoyed hearing the classic rock hits of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. 'Sojourn's' music and vocals brought back fond memories of their favorite rock bands. Thank you again."

Quotation marksOn behalf of PACE (Peoria Area Community Events) and our thousands of attendees at the Steamboat Festival, thanks for a great show and a perfect night. Your music selection was diverse (always appreciated when playing a 3-day festival), and your stage presence a treat. Not only did we get many compliments on your performance, but we were equally impressed with your professionalism."

"As the event director, it is a sincere pleasure to work with entertainers like you that respect the efforts put into coordinating events and adapt so well to the inevitable surprises that come with them. You were by far the most gracious band we had perform that weekend and you can look forward to future invitations to play for PACE events. Thanks again for everything!"

Quotation marksThe band “Sojourn” has provided the Champaign Park District and its patrons with great music at Sunday night concerts in the park and also our largest event of the year, Taste of Champaign-Urbana.”

Quotation marksOur radio stations host two large events for Administrative Professionals Day. In Effingham, Illinois we have approximately 500 attendees, in Mattoon 300 plus. Both events have a long history of success, and attendance is only limited to venue size.”

“In the past we have used our own on-air talent, and we were concerned about adding a live band. After previewing the music of "Sojourn" we felt their broad appeal and professionalism would enhance our affairs. Robb Perry and Sojourn Rocs gave two great performances, and we are now looking for larger venues for next year's parties. We also plan to use Sojourn Rocs at other events in other markets where we have radio stations. We were extremely pleased and highly recommend the band. Their talent and showmanship received an enthusiastic and appreciative response."

Quotation marksI knew you guys were going to be good, however, you really exceeded our expectations. There aren't many top quality, reliable dance bands such as yours that offer such a wide range of music."
