Soul. Rhythm and Blues. The words conjure romantic images of sweat dripping dancers swaying slowly to infectious Motown grooves, Staxx and Chess chart toppers oozing from the band stand with a harmonic intensity so real it broke your heart. Tender ballads peppered with generous portions of Hammond organ and scorched barn burners precisely punctuated by a ruthless horn section, these were the songs to have you on your feet before the singer even started. The times have changed and music has moved on, but the feeling of all this remains. This is an eight piece band that promises that feeling will sustain.
Horns. Bass, drums, and keys. Seductive guitar. And at the forefront of all this, Stephen Cooper. Combining R&B, jazz, soul, blues, funk, hip hop, and rock, he has drawn on his accomplishments of the past to bring you something truly special...A living, breathing musical conduit from the past to the present...and we guarantee to bring you that feeling of the heart once again.
Stephen Cooper has been a bandleader, sideman, and touring musician for over 25 years. In that time, he has played in 21 states and 7 countries with numerous groups, most namely WiFEE and the HUZz BAND and The Groove Hogs.
