This eight piece with horns delivers a raucous batch of up-tempo thumping Northern Soul, the most danceable music ever conceived. A bit of rock'n'roll thrown in for good measure to ensure the sets variety and energy is maintained to a very high standard. If you can’t dance to this, you don’t have feet! We have a great mix of lesser known covers from the likes of Etta James, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and much more. These songs are hand picked to ensure the energy never fades, the mix is constantly rising until there isn't a single person who can avoid the lure of the dance floor.

The band was born out of the amazing soul club nights that happen in Melbourne that are delivered with passion and knowledge from the best soul DJs in the southern hemisphere. To balance this out and help this thriving scene we're adding live music to this mix which delivers the music with far more energy and excitement. With the help of Vince Peach (Soultime & Soul A GO GO) and Andrew Young we have put together a tasteful set of soul songs that can easily be dubbed the best dance music ever invented. Lesser known classics that will appeal to both soul aficionados and future soul fans are delivered with a three piece horn section, drums, bass, guitar, piano and hammond organ through a leslie speaker and a possessed energetic front man, Mr. Sol Haus. All up beat, all catchy, with two simple rules. No hits & no funk. All of our tracks are either early 60's or 50's soul.
