“Souled Out has been a vital part of making the Bud Lite stage/out door beer garden a huge success this past year. It is our hopes to continue to work together to bring quality entertainment to Navy Pier. Because of the band and its exceptional talent, we are yet again, selected as the number one tourist attraction in the Midwest. You have helped to draw visitors that we have come to know and love. Reports from our night staff showed your choice of musical artist accommodated our night audience, great stage presence, and you rocked the night away. We look forward to working with you again and having more great summers in the Navy Pier beer garden and it’s always a pleasure to have you here.”Dee Yelvington, Entertainment Manager, Navy Pier
