Overflowing with talent and known for innovation, Detroit has long been home to some of the world's most recognized and influential musicians. The tradition continues with Metro Detroit's dynamic band, The Saints of Soul. An eight-piece ensemble reminiscent of early Motown, The Saints of Soul have managed to pull together the most skilled and sought after musicians from the north, south, east and west to create a horn-driven collective with a solid and growing fan base. Formed a decade ago, the band's classic sound and high energy stage shows make it a force to be reckoned with, etching its mark on the local music scene and performing regularly at numerous venues throughout Michigan. The Saints of Soul's distinctive vibe evolves from the eclectic roots of its members. Soul, funk, Motown, R&B, blues, jazz, and classical influences translate into explosive power, provocative melody, infectious grooves. Soul Music. Got Soul?
