SOUL SURVIVORS

Soul, funk & blues - covers and originals

Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Soul, funk, blues - it's the groove, stupid! Soul Survivors don't do carbon copy covers. We focus on the groove, and put our own spin on things. The originals are the bonus extras in the package.
 
So, if you want a band that can funk and groove for your special event, get in touch. We're available to play anywhere in the Sydney metro area.
 
Need something more laid back for part of your evening? Let us know, and we can put together a semi-acoustic mix of light jazz and mellow favourites.
 
Our current line-up is:
 
Megan Kemmis (vocals)
Nick Miles (guitar and bvox)
Steven Stoneham (bass)
Tony Edbrooke (drums)
Will Kirkby (saxophone, percussion and bvox)
Brendan Render (trumpet, percussion and bvox)
 
A little bit of history
A long time ago in a rehearsal room far, far away....
It's the mid 80s. Everyone's wearing clothes they will live to regret. The rhythm section from the Barrenjoey Band has just got together with two funky guitarists and a couple of kids who used to play brass with the Harbord Diggers Youth Club Big Band. All they need is a vocalist.... 
 
The resulting band was Soul Survivors, who went on to be a favourite feature at venues such as the Marble Bar, Feathers at Crows Nest, the Hotel Manly, the Great Northern Hotel (Chatswood) and more.
