Hoodoo Soul Band – Natalie’s Grandview
- This event has passed.
Hoodoo Soul Band began as a side project for several seasoned veterans of the Columbus music scene who wanted an outlet to play funk and r&b with a horn section. In January of 1995, these players started a weekly residency at Oldfield’s on High and it quickly became the place to be for Columbus music scene junkies. In 2008, the group found a new home for their residency at Rumba Cafe on Summit Street and the crowd followed.
Primarily a cover band, Hoodoo is known for curating a unique set list while giving each song their own original treatment. The players effectively turn soul songs into standards which they deconstruct on the fly, improvising new arrangements in front of the crowd, and introducing audiences to funky, unfamiliar gems that quickly become crowd favorites. Most of the group is still made up of the original members but new blood has been introduced over the years. At any given show the lineup may change with only the very best players in the city subbing in. The focus is music and the standards are high. Hoodoo Soul has also been direct support for world-class acts passing through Columbus such as Parliament, Ray Charles, and many others.
