Soul Senate is a 7-piece, high-energy, adrenaline-inducing, audience-oriented, original soul/funk party powerhouse. This band has lit up the dance floor at the Bike in the past, but they are pulling out all the stops for Strawberry Festival Friday – do not miss this epic show!
Bridging the decidedly funky sounds of the 60s & early 70s–such as the Meters, Stevie Wonder, and the Stax label of Memphis–with a distinct modern sound in the vein of Raphael Saadiq, Alice Russell, Eli Paperboy Reed, and the New Mastersounds; Soul Senate claims their own musical territory with booty shaking grooves, well-crafted arrangements, sizzling horns, and memorable instrumentals and vocal songs.
Each member of the band has over 10-30 years experience on the local or national scene: in sum, playing countless venues & festivals–from Bumbershoot to the 100,000 person West Fest–with experience opening for touring acts like Orgone, Delta Nove, Will Bernard, Roy Ayers, and the Monophonics.
Soul Senate’s goal is to lift people up by playing tight in the groove, making a night with Soul Senate a party that is not to be missed, and one that will not easily be forgotten.
