The Soul


Vocalist, Vocalist - Soprano, Vocalist - Alto.


The best dressed, least stressed, funkiest band in the whole Midwest. For years, The Soul (formerly RJ and The Soul) has been turning audiences on to their “21st century juke joint” style and high energy ‘get up to get down’ sound, bringing 300% pure groove from the first line to quitting time. This ain’t no sittin’ and listening music…
No genres. Just music. Viva soul.

Past Events

For the past three years, streets in Minneapolis have transformed to allow residents to experience their city in a whole new way — by bike, by skateboard, however they please. We call this Open Streets Mpls, and it has grown from one event in 2011 to four in 2013. In 2014 we are planning six events all across the city!

We see Open Streets Mpls as the perfect chance to promote healthy living, local businesses, sustainable transportation and civic pride in Minneapolis. On multiple days throughout the year, we create miles of safe, car-free streets so that residents of all ages can walk, bike, shop, participate in spontaneous play activities, and get to know one another.

We hope you'll join us this year on a street in your own neighborhood, and enjoy it from a different perspective. Come wander the Open Streets and have some fun! You can even bring your dog.

And of course, it's free!
