About


Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and a life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.

Soul Explosion brings together a group of musicians from all over the UK. Its members are all top notch musicians who have played with some of the UK's top artists across the jazz and funk circuits appearing nationally and internationally and touring venues, festivals, theatres, hotels and cruise liners around the world.

A band delving deep into the Great American musical subconscious, Soul Explosion brings out the best of soul, funk, rhythm and blues.

Its 10-piece lineup (lead vocals, backing vocals, piano, bass, drums, percussion, saxophones, flute and trumpet) lends itself to a slick, sophisticated sound coloured by the unique concept of soul that arose out of the African experience in America.

Drawing on their collective experiences of groove, harmony and lyricism, their mission is to celebrate the myriad of styles that arose out of the jazz, blues and gospel traditions which have become significant musical movements from the early twentieth century right through to the present day.
