Since 2007, Boone, NC-based sextet Soul Benefactor has been mining the deepest grooves from Memphis, Muscle Shoals and Motown, belting out classic tunes with enough righteous conviction to pack dance floors with people of all ages.
Featuring the Horns du Jour, the veteran party band pumps fresh energy into the songs of Sam & Dave, Marvin Gaye, Junior Walker, Stevie Wonder and Al Green, hitting lots of forgotten soul b-sides along the way. The band also makes hay with brassy rockers by The Allman Brothers Band, Steely Dan and Joe Cocker, among others. Soul Benefactor isn’t trying to reinvent the classics, they’re just giving you plenty of reasons to get up out of your seat and dance to some of the best grooves ever committed to wax.
