Soul Senate is a 7-piece, high-energy, adrenaline-inducing, audience-oriented, original soul/funk/jazz party powerhouse.
Bridging the decidedly funky sounds of the 60s & early 70s--such as the Meters, Stevie Wonder, and the Stax label of Memphis--with a distinct modern sound in the vein of Raphael Saadiq, Alice Russell, Eli Paperboy Reed, and the New Mastersounds; Soul Senate claims their own musical territory with booty shaking grooves, well-crafted arrangements, sizzling horns, and memorable instrumentals and vocal songs.
We have been playing regularly to packed dance floors at venues around Seattle such as Nectar, the Sunset, High Dive, lo_fi, ToST, the Skylark, and Conor Byrne.
Band members have come from successful groups such as Altered States of Funk, Felicia Loud & Her Soul, Down North, Swamp Mama Johnson, the Black Swedes, Spaceship Excellent, and Superkali; as well as Bo Diddly and Etta James.
Our goal is to lift people up by playing tight in the groove, making a night with Soul Senate a party that is not to be missed, and one that will not be easily forgotten.
