“(Part ONE) Saturday night was met with the onslaught of Carnival Of Soul! I’ve seen these guys perform before but with the hanging of friends and alcohol induced fun times I’ve never been really able to actually listen to their music and watch a full performance. It was a definite epiphany for me and I kept saying to myself “Self…why haven’t you paid attention sooner?” Carnival Of Soul peeked my interest as Christopher Corridino helped us out in sound checking our new 840 MXL mics for the live streaming. Taking classically inspired riffs and turning them into a tailored, well composed set that Carnival Of Soul has made as a top notch band in our scene. I was thoroughly impressed with every nuance they brought to the stage. I will say I get a bit nervous when I see a keyboard being brought in. In my opinion (and don’t shoot me folks…this is just an opinion…everyone’s got one), keyboards take up a lot of real estate in a band if they aren’t performed, produced and p”
“(Part TWO) However, Sean Bryan is about as perfect on the keys as perfect can be. Not taking away from the sound or over playing it but adding the perfection of the utmost tastefully done synth and sampling that I have seen since I am a HUGE fan of Love In War. Perfecting the rhythm section is Jim Argentino on Percussion and Dan LaMantia on Bass and rightly so given the incredible timing and perfect beat for every song. Those 2 are animals with the rhythm. Never faltering. I heard absolutely not one flaw in Carnival Of Souls set. It was absolutely perfect. And being a flautist myself I thoroughly enjoyed Jessica Wilsons added touches to the songs that included the flute. It is my master instrument and it is always a pleasure to hear one’s orchestral influence performing perfect instrumentation in a rock and roll band! So Carnival Of Soul gets 5 Stars from The SoundCheck and a huge shout out for starting the night out with 172 streamers on our Live broadcast!”
“(Part THREE) I can’t wait to see these guys and girl back on the stage at Rack’ems. But until then follow their schedule on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/CarnivalofSoul”
"Carnival of Soul" ROCKS!!!
"I've had the pleasure of working with Carnival Of Soul on a number of occasions and let me just say that the boys bring it to the stage! The comfortable, old school feel. The lyrics, that suck you into the sound, that makes you want more. Hard to classify these guys, because they can play it all. If they're playing at a venue near you, ya better not miss em. You'll regret it. Damn Skippy!"
"...'Braid' is fantastic...you are getting an amazing sound...I'm your newest fan...", "...your band deserves to be heard..."
“I've listened to Washed Up and Braid so far. You guys have a great sound. You're different but have something familiar about you. I personally think it works.”
