In a world where nutcracker ballets, classical programs and shows for children frequently abound during the holiday season, haven’t you as an adult ever wished there was something for you with a little more “oomph”? That’s exactly what you get when you combine four of California’s most dynamic personalities and strongest voices into one big soul-packed Christmas Show!
Soul 4 the Season is a holiday journey that will take you from moving spiritual number to light hearted impudent favorites. There are even songs for those who are naughty and nice. This concert makes a deliberate effort to stay away from the children’s aspect of the season. And though it’s aimed at a more mature and musically discerning audience, the show is suitable for all ages.
Featured in the 2018 concert series if Fred Ross, who is known for his work with Fred Wesley, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Pee Wee Ellis, Santana and Frankie Beverly & Maize. His soulful sound brings the perfect counterpoint to the ladies. Also in the 2018 concert series is the equally legendary Lydia Pense, who has been enthralling audiences for more than four decades. Her unique voice is instantly recognizable and her soulful bluesy delivery will delight her fans with this new aspect of her talent. Paula Harris is a world class act who has gained international attention and who is a multiple Blues Music Award nominee. Dana Moret is a versatile singer whos band Mr. December is knonw to deliver everything form rock to funk in their wildly popular concerts. Dana has gathered a fan base from her work with Bill Graham’s bands Stoneground, Big Brother & the Holding Co., and the Sons of Champlain.
Each of these vocalists and band leaders pack a serious punch individually, together they are the “must see” holiday event of the year – and they are backed by Lydia’s band Cold Blood!
