We have a very limited inventory of 2-Day Passes available and once they're sold out, there won't be any additional 2-Day Passes released. They'll be available at the price points of $35 and $40. Once we've sold out of 2-Day Passes at the price of $35, we'll sell them at $40 until those are sold out. There won't be any additional 2-Day Passes sold at that point.
Fast-forward 15 years and the recorded catalogue boasts 24 more 7” singles, 9 studio albums, 2 live albums, 1 remix album and 3 compilation albums, released variously in UK, USA and Japan, where they continue to tour extensively. Joe Tatton, another veteran of the Leeds scene, joined back in 2007, replacing Bob Birch on organ and piano.
Having vast on-tour and in-studio experience has enabled this group to touch into the deepest levels of musical literacy, allowing them to create each show as a “from the hip” experience – meaning each concert is 100% spontaneous and unplanned, with set lists and jams being determined in real time, in front of a live audience. While every single show is completely different, one thing remains the same: You never know what might happen, or who might join them on the stage, and it will always be an incredibly funky dance party.
While they are joined by the killer horn section of trumpeter Gabriel Mervine (The Motet) and saxophonist Matt Pitts (formerly of The Motet), the core lineup showcases the shredding guitar work of Taylor Scott (Otis Taylor Band), the deep pocket of bassist Todd Edmunds (Otis Taylor Band), the tastefully funky beats of drummer Eric Imbrosciano, and kaleidoscope of aural colors provided by keyboardist and primary writer Jon Wirtz.
Having already drawn comparisons to bands like Soulive, Lettuce, and Mothership Connection-era P-Funk, buzz around the band has grown quickly, along with a loyal fanbase. In the band's short history, they have already shared the stage with the legendary George Porter Jr. (The Meters),as well as members of Lettuce, Vulfpeck, Big Gigantic, Snarky Puppy, Kneebody, Leftover Salmon, The Motet and Kyle Hollingsworth Band. Their debut record, Shut Up About The Sun, is due for release on September 30, 2016. "
Kim Dawson's Sisters of Soul pays tribute to the legendary soul singers that we all love so much and features Kim Dawson, Christie "CC" Chambers, Tanya Shylock, Dave Watts, Garrett Sayers, Matthew Wright, Matt Pitts, Austin Zalafel.
