Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal – $10

August 6 @ 8:00 pm

Night after night at their live shows, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal leave it all on the table, bringing crowds palpably authentic music. This is a real working band; music for the people, by the people. You hear the veracity in Hoyer’s voice. You hear the strife of a guitar amp being pushed to its limits. You hear keyboards hammering notes home while emboldened horns soar over the top of a rhythm section akin to a freight train. The raucous funk and smooth soul emanating from the stage dutifully pays homage to the past soul giants while simultaneously charging forward, piloting themselves into the modern era. This is soul music.
ROLLLING STONE:
“Fusing soul with hints of R&B and classic country, Hoyer took on The Chi-Lites’ 1972 R&B Number One hit “Oh Girl.” His smooth interpretation, along with his sonorous vocals, convinced both Shelton and fellow coach Gwen Stefani to turn their chairs as he confidently soared through the chorus.”
JAZZWEEKLY.COM:
“Josh, a fan of Otis Redding, James Brown, and Curtis Mayfield, is a composer of songs so evocative listeners might mistake some, such as “The First One,” for classic standards instead of the contemporary observations of a Midwesterner.”
