Soul Vaccination remains at the top of the Portland charts and is one of the tightest funk and soul bands in the PNW. As the Rose City’s favorite, Soul Vax infuses the stage with the band’s own takes on the greatest soul standards, and own tunes, and has been a fixture in the Northwest music scene for over 20 years.
This high-energy 12-piece band features Brian Harris on Hammond B-3 and keyboards, along with the precision guitar playing of Mike Doolin. On bass, is GRAMMY-nominated producer John Linn, and on drums is Ron Tuttle, always bringin’ the funk and groovin’ hard. Portland’s own Regina K, and Mark Wyatt and Glen Hoover share their soulful vocal styles. Lewis Livermore and Dave Mills carry the backbone sound of the Soul Vax horns on trumpets, with Ron Regan, Gary Harris, and Timothy Bryson on saxophones.
Joining the group for their first main stage appearance at the festival in over a decade will be Northwest soul legend, Andy Stokes.
Check out the band’s new singles, “Funk P-Town”, “Got More Life”, and “Little Diva”, on YouTube, Spotify, and all other platforms.
