Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


This is one band that will certainly get your party started. The 8 piece group showcases a distinct sound and style made famous by artist such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Al Green, Isaac Hayes, and Booker T. & the MGs. Avenue Soul features a solid rhythm section, fiery horns and dynamic male and female vocalists. Their style displays the rich musical legacy of the 1960s and 70s along with the current popularity of Classic Soul and R&B music. Avenue Soul also performs popular standards from Sinatra to Motown to round out its musical variety. We have performed at places such as The Glass Cactus, Martini Park, Sullivans Ringside, Isaac Hayes Restuarant (Memphis, TN), Taste of Dallas, The Territory Resort in OK., The Anatole Hotel, Ashton Depot-Ft Worth, Petroleum Club, Colonial C.C., Mira Vista Golf Club, Four Seasons resort, Macy's Northpark International Concepts, YO Ranch in Kerville, Detroit-MAAH, and various other venues. 

Some of the players include Victor B, Frederick Nichelson, Bobby Riese, Rodney Engelbosch, Kennan Wylie, and vocalist Ardina Lockhart. All are veterans of the blues and jazz scene in Texas and the southwest. Nichelson even grew up in the shadows of several STAX Records artists and their contemporaries in Memphis. In addition to the dynamic live show, the band has pledged to actively promote music in education. Avenue Soul actively schedules performances at schools and other charity events. These often include not only music, but also business training and life skills. This shall indeed carry the torch of Memphis soul music to new heights. This great legacy of American music will be “given thanks” like none before it. Our goal is to make every event enjoyable and exceed the client's expectations. We pay attention to every detail when performing for wedding receptions, holiday parties, and other celebrations. Our packages include professional sound, lighting, and custom recorded music on breaks. We cover all your bases so there are simply no worries! see their official website at www.avenuesoul.net Here is a special note to prospective Wedding clients: Avenue Soul has been performing parties, wedding receptions and other celebrations since 1999. It has been our goal to make each event enjoyed by ALL attendees. The band performs a variety of music from jazz standards, to Motown, to classic pop and rock.

We simply make your special day a memorable occasion. We begin by meeting with the venue and coordinator to arrange logistics. We then tailor our set list to fit YOUR event. We encourage you to view our set list and select the songs you would like to hear and ones you DO NOT want to hear. We will also learn 2-3 songs at your request for your event. We need 30 days notice to work up new material especially for you! Our standard performance time is for 3 hours of music in a 4 hour period. This usually means 45 minute sets with 15-20 minute breaks.
