Reggie Woods Band
A Queens, New York native, Reggie Woods is a Saxophonist, Composer, Arranger, Producer and Educator who has been influenced by legendary Jazz saxophonists Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon.

Although Jazz is his first love, he has added a special quality to his live and recorded sessions with Rap, Pop, Funk and Blues genres, as well.
A graduate of New York University [Master of Arts in Music Education and Kodaly Certification], Long Island University [Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance] and Five Towns College [Associate of Applied Science in Music Performance], a Certified Prevention Professional [OASAS]. Reggie continues to pursue advanced training in music education and counseling. He is a National Endowment Recipient for Jazz Performance and recipient of the Satchmo Music Entertainment Award.

I’m writing to share with you my experience with Reggie Woods and The Soul Street Band.
Last night, I got married at The Garden City Hotel and Reggie Woods and his band performed for us.
They were spectacular from start to finish. When I met with Reggie and Lynette I told Reggie I wanted to walk down the aisle to “Bittersweet Symphony”. He assured me that he and his band can play that. When it came time to the professional not only did he follow through but it was the most beautiful music I ever heard. Fast forward to the party- Reggie and his team were unbelievable. They played all our favorite music and their enthusiasm got all of our guests on the dance floor!!!
Everyone came up to us to tell us how wonderful our band was. Today we got many phone calls asking us who our band was and to tell us that our band was awesome! I cannot thank Reggie Woods and The Soul Street Band enough. I have to give a shout out to Lynette who was extremely professional and timely answering emails and walking us through the night. We had a wonderful experience and we will continue recommending them to everyone we know!

Just wanted to drop a short note telling you how over the top the Reggie Woods Band was on Saturday night at our daughter’s wedding. Reggie and his crew electrified the room and had everyone up on their feet for every song. They were very professional prior to our event and took all the directions that Jessica and Alec provided to make a personal and special experience. The phone hasn’t stopped ringing and there are always high praise for the band. The singers were unbelievable and the music phenomenal.
When we met with you about a year ago you asked us if we wanted a band with true soul Well that’s exactly what we got. We couldn’t have been happier!!!!!!
Once again The Reggie Woods Band was a perfect fit!!!!!

Reggie Woods and the Soul Street Band did such an incredible job at my wedding at the Ravel Hotel in Long Island City. The guests were coming up to me all night asking who they were and where did I find them. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night - the next morning at our brunch everyone was still talking about how amazing the band was. I could not be happier that I went with them!!
