Soul and Funk Bands

in Music

Born within the United States in the 1960's, Soul music was a gospel revival merged with rhythm and blues styles. It originated here but soon resonated throughout the Western hemisphere to create one of the most important styles of live music entertainment there is!


In a time where the segregation between black and white was still happening, this brand new style enabled the integration as more and more white people liked it and saw that black culture was not immoral or degrading. It also enabled a commercial ‘boom', through the creation of radio, television channels and other infrastructures run by black entrepreneurs to allow a generation of songwriters, musicians and producers to fulfill the needs of black music.


By the 1970s, Funk became the dominant style in Afro-American sound. By combining the well-liked music of the Soul with the rhythms and charming guitar hooks of Funk allowed for a new type of music to be born – Soul Funk Music is now an extremely remarkable choice of band to hire for any occasion.


The connection between Soul and Funk is eternal, with the renowned sound of James Brown distinctively passing all the way through both genres of music. Many bands have an assorted repertoire covering and combining both styles of music brilliantly.
