NEW.
ORIGINAL.
FUNK, SOUL & HIP HOP

A BIG band bringing back BIG sound with horns, percussion, and an onslaught of talented vocalists & musicians. This 15-piece original Funk, Soul, RnB Orchestra comes straight out of Victoria sounding like Motown meets Roots meets the Golden Age of Hip Hop. At times, they are a soul band with raspy lead vocals and beautifully sculpted harmonies; at times, they are a funk band with a wild horn section and groovy bass and drums; at times they are a hip hop group with catchy hooks and heavy beats; and at times, they are sweet and sultry, keeping the audience lit up with the sweetest of ballads. This group simply loves to make music and making people move! It’s safe to say, this band does it all. The danciest party you ever dance-partied!

"We're putting the band back together!"
