Soul of Boston

Band Info

Way before Bruno Mars came along, Boston already had its very own uptown funk machine … the mega-talented dance band Soul of Boston!

Don’t believe me? Just watch as this uber-chic, trend-setting, 8 piece musical juggernaut SLAYS dance jam after dance jam and lights your dance floor on fire! With its soul-crushing rhythm section, a brass section that will blow your mind, and six (YES 6!) LEAD vocalists who hit EVERY high note, Soul of Boston rocks its way like a BOSS through every musical genre from 60’s soul classics, to epic 80’s rock anthems, to 90’s “old skool” R&B, all the way to today’s biggest chart-topping pop hits! An absolutely extraordinary blend of vocal and musical excellence puts this band in a soul-searing class all its own! For non-stop music that you will feel down right down in your soul, let Soul of Boston funk you up … just watch!

Dave, I cannot tell you how many compliments we've received about the band at our wedding! You guys rocked the house and were amazing! I honestly think you are the best wedding band I've ever seen ... Thanks again for everything, my only wish was that I could get married again just to hear the band!

— Erin

Hi Dave! Just wanted to let you know how happy and pleased we all were with you and the band members. The music was great and you kept the guests on their feet all night long! Thank you for a job well done!
