Performer Profile: Soul City

Posted on 01 May 2017 by Our Fraser Coast

What is your music genre?
"Our repertoire spans the most popular soul, funk and rock covers from Cocker and Doobie Brothers to Bruno Mars and Amy Winehouse. With nine people on stage, the synergy is immediately recognisable."

How does the Fraser Coast inspire your creativity?
"The Fraser Coast's diverse and eclectic community invigorates us to provide music that caters for all tastes. We are inspired by the laid back, inclusive atmosphere at venues like Gatakers Artspace to pubs and clubs, seafront performances and festivals." 

What do you hope the audience gets from your performances?
"We aim to provide a real ‘live music’ experience of some of the most popular songs ever recorded. Live music is uplifting with audience enthusiasm demonstrating their excitement and involvement – quite different from listening to popular remixes."

One of the biggest thrills for the band is feeding off an audience who is engaged with our performance. 

Soul City are recipients of a 2017 RADF Fraser Coast Live grant.
