THE SOUL MOTIVATORS
Spread the word – The Soul Motivators are here to restore your faith in funk. This tight 9-piece ensemble digs deep, mines a rare groove and elevates your soul. Imagine a movin’, groovin’ record collection packed with sounds from across the spectrum – a solid soul review, afrobeat, the roots of funk and classic hip-hop breaks. That’s just for starters. Let the rolling bass and fatback drums move you to the dance floor while you immerse yourself in the chanking guitar riffs, crisp horns and screaming B3. Then be sure to listen up to the raw, mamas-no-messin’ vocal style.
With a packed schedule taking in clubs, theatres and festivals across Canada, as well as regular rotation on CBC Radio, there’s always an opportunity to grab a slice of the funk energy. Their explosive live show has been seen at the Toronto’s TD Jazz Festival and The Beaches International Jazz Festival. They’ve opened for such legends as Afrika Bambaataa and Lee Fields & The Expressions and most recently Grand Master Flash. With joints available on CD, mp3 and vinyl, you can enjoy the special blend anytime of the day. So what are you waiting for? Get up, get into it – and let yourself be Motivated.
