"Folks in the Pacific Northwest are lucky to have a real soul band this fine and exciting. This New Englander is jealous."
-- Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat columnist/Grove Press author
Soul Vaccination is the Hottest Funk & Soul Bands in the PNW. This great band infuses the Stage with the greatest soul standards and has been a fixture in the Northwest music scene for over 18 years, bringing you tunes from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Earth Wind & Fire and Tower of Power. The band's third CD, "What is Hip?" featuring legendary Tower of Power guitarist Bruce Conte was recently reviewed by DownBeat Magazine receiving ★★★1/2. It is an honor to be recognized nationally by DownBeat Magazine.
The current 12 piece band features Dave Aston on Hammond B-3 and Keyboards, along with the precision guitar playing of Max Rees. On bass is Grammy nominated producer, John Linn, and on Drums is Edwin Coleman III, always bringin' the funk and Groovin' Hard. Portland's own Paul Creighton, Mark Wyatt, and Regina K share their soulful vocals styles. Lewis Livermore and Dave Mills carry the backbone sound of the Soul Vax horns on trumpets, with Ron Regan, Gary Harris, & Timothy Bryson on saxophones. Don't miss our next show.
