ABOUT

Pawn Shop Soul reclaims hawked sixties and seventies soul and funk tunes - some that cashed in and some forgotten grooves - blows out the dust and raises the roof. Tight and punchy, the Pawn Shop Horns front the band. Four horns up front and funked up with bari sax scoops, organ steps out of the groove to testify in that unmistakable voice of the times. The guitar, bass, drums, and congas are the shopkeepers, keeping the power on, taking care business, ready to blaze when the spotlight falls on them. Nine players playing to the nines for lovers of soul and funk music.

Influences

The pawn shop jukebox is stacked with hip shakin’ booty bumpin’ tunes from the houses of Stax, Fame, Muscle Shoals, Chess, and many others. Grooves from the likes of the Mar-Keys and the Bar-kays are on the selector next to tunes written or recorded by artists such as by Eddie Harris, Clarence Wheeler, Jack McDuff, Willie Bobo, and Mongo Santamaria. Whether an overlooked soul instrumental from the Northern Soul songbook, a deep funk fugitive from fame, or soul inspired Cuban groove, each issues a siren call to shake it! No ordinary cover band, Pawn Shop Soul brings back heat of soul and funk’s golden age for a live experience not to be forgotten.
