Matador! Soul Sounds

Matador! Soul Sounds is a band loosely based on the concept of Spanish bullfighting. A common misconception in America is that bullfighting is a feat of one man versus one bull—in reality, bullfighting is largely a team effort by a matador and his cuadrilla.

Born from the vision of Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds) and Alan Evans (Soulive) their fierce cuadrilla consists of keyboardist Chris Spies and bassist Kevin Scott (Jimmy Herring) as the band’s “banderilleros". Adding a feminine energy to the band are Adryon de León and Kimberly Dawson (Pimps of Joytime) on vocals. Combining the dynamism of each band leader, the music they have created is brand new, hard hitting and drenched with their shared musical passions - jazz, funk & soul.

The band made their official World Debut at Live for Live Music’s Brooklyn Comes Alive 2017 and will be touring in the spring of 2018 behind their first full length EP.

The White Blinds

Emerging from the tight-knit Los Angeles Funk and Soul community, The White Blinds are one of the newest true Organ Trios to carry the torch of instrumental music in the city of Angels. The White Blinds pay homage to the classic soul jazz sound of the 60's and 70's with a splash of New Orleans groove and Afro-Funk overtones. For lovers of Dr. Lonnie Smith, Charles Earland, and The City Champs, this trio led by drummer and percussionist Michael Duffy (Jungle Fire, Ozomatli), with Organist Carey Frank (Tedeschi Trucks), and Guitarist Matt Hornbeck, have come together to form a tight and soulful ensemble, filtered though the lens that is uniquely Los Angeles. Their forthcoming debut LP “Get To Steppin” is due out Summer 2018 on Southern California’s premier Soul, Jazz, and Funk vinyl record label, F-Spot Records. The album features ten songs consisting of nine originals and one take on the classic tune “Blue Juice” by Jimmy McGriff.
