The high-energy funk band Chapter:SOUL will perform at the Grand Stafford Theater from 9pm to 11pm on August 5. A new player on the New Orleans funk scene, Chapter:SOUL is a 4-piece modern funk and soul band led by Calvin Johnson Jr. (Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Dirty Dozen Brass Band) on tenor saxophone. The group currently includes the legendary Kirk Joseph (founding member of Dirty Dozen Brass Band) on sousaphone. The band builds upon – and modernizes – New Orleans’ energetic brass band rhythms and horn-driven melodies by seamlessly weaving in bounce beats, contemporary hits, and deep grooves reminiscent of the P-Funk era.
Chapter:SOUL gets people out of their seat and up on the dance floor and will be a new favorite for fans of Earth, Wind and Fire, Galactic, Parliament-Funkadelic, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Big Sam’s Funky Nation. Chapter:SOUL is currently working on its debut record, and will be bringing a live preview of their original music on the road.
