Souljam 3/21/2020

Running time - 1:01:50

 

Souljam joins us for an all original, online pay per view concert event.

Souljam is a rock/soul jam band featuring Will Keehner on bass; Anna Keehner on lead vocals & guitar; Patrick Williams on drums; Brandon Putzke on percussion and John Carpenter on guitar & vocals.

The group plays select cover tunes in addition to writing and performing their own material. Even when playing material by other bands and writers, creativity and self expression lie at Souljam's core. They may hover within the parameters familiar to fans of classic rock or those acquainted with Phish, the Grateful Dead and the Tedeschi Trucks Band, but their listeners are stimulated by Souljam's new and exciting arrangements.

Terri Binion is an Orlando treasure!

Terri writes her Americana ballads with deep-seeded honesty, love, heartache, truth, hope and a sense of looking forward.

"Two songs in and it was clear, Lucinda (Lucinda Williams) sang on this unknown's record because she understood that Terri was a magic person--someone who not only followed her own compass, but who was guided by stars not visible to the average eye." -- Southern gothic songwriter, Film maker, author, artist, Jim White.

Beth McKee is the gestalt of all the places she’s settled. From her native Mississippi, where she learned the blues first hand from Malaco Records session musicians, to her immersion in the scenes of Austin, New Orleans, and now Orlando – all their musical terroir is in her sound. But those influences, too, have become less distinct in the distillation of Beth’s aesthetic. You’ll recognize the hues if you really wanna parse it. But if you just listen, you’ll hear a sound that is quintessentially Southern. It’s tapped from the roots and rolls like honey.
