The Seattle Soul All Stars is a collective of perhaps the finest musicians the tradition rich Emerald City has ever produced...a bold statement considering the likes of Jimmy Hendrix, Quincy Jones, Kenny G, etc were all spawned in the unbelievably fertile Seattle music scene. Gerald and Thaddeus Turner, two of Seatown's finest bass/ lead guitar combination since 70s funk superstars The Brothers Johnson, take the stage alongside DJ ROC PHIZZLE,( Jamaal Robinson), an extraordinary talent whose keyboard playing is reminiscent of some of the great funk / Soul Keyboard players in some of the best bands of the 70s and 80s. It should come as no surprise that his father played bass guitar in the legendary 70s and 80s funk super band " "Lakeside".
Also included in this eclectic group of musicians is the aptly named"Superman", Conrad Real, on the drums; Conrad, together with the aforementioned Turner brothers, form the nucleus of the rhythm section for 90s super hip hop jazz group " Digable Planets" and will be leaving with DP to go on tour shortly after doing the Jack London show.
Rounding out the band will be singer extraordinaire Dechelle Monet. Anyone who saw her electrifying performance last month on her first visit to JL will remember her soul, power, and presence. So if you are looking for a sound that is rare (if it exists at all) outside of the Seattle City limits, and you want a musical experience that will stay with you long after the last note has been played, do yourself a favor and get your tickets to this truly special show Sunday 4/22/18 at the Jack London Revue.
