    “Sol’s playing has been described as “musical glue,” holding together many grooves and personalities. He has backed up legendary artists like Taj Mahal and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, opened for Robert Randolph, Wood Brothers, and has played with more obscure artists who have had unique perspectives and sounds. Though it all, he has learned many valuable lessons and is still able to hold on to the one thing that ties us all spiritually to one another — music.”- Jeff Reid - The Beat Magazine On Sunday December 27 (early show) the Sol Roots trio performs at JV’s in Falls Church VA. This group features guitarist and vocalist Sol, with drummer extraordinaire Scott Rabino and tasteful bassist Andreas Holmstrom JVs is a classic roadhouse venue that showcases high quality DC area blues, rockabilly and rock performers on a regular basis. JV’s showcases music every night of the week. Sol is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured around the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol and his band create a unique blend of energetic rock, raw blues, reggae, and funk, all delivered with deep soul. Sol has performed at many premier festivals and venues across the east coast US, and the band has been on bills with Soulive, Jon Cleary, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Booker T Jones, Shemekia Copeland, Eric Lindell and more. Paying homage to the greats, Sol seeks to push musical boundaries and bring Roots Music to a new generation of listeners. “The song “Rough Catfish” plants the listener firmly back in the barrens of the Mississippi Delta, as Sol howls like a man possessed. Think of Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads” fused with Jimi Hendrix’s “Machine Gun,” and you get some indication of what this song “feels” like. Tall comparison, I know, but this song, with its wonderful use of mood, proves worthy of the distinction.”- Evan Wade, Home Grown Music Network “a heavy groove! Sol tears out funk, blues, and rock, delivered with deep soul” - T. Duffy, President Music Maker “Sol is an exceptional guitarist & a great musician/songwriter with an extraordinary ability to fit the perfect approach and composition.”- Fred Cannon, a Senior VP at BMI please visit the website for more info. www.SolRootsMusic.com

"The band pulls together funk, soul, blues and reggae elements...Sol uses his right hand fingers, not a pick, to get his bluesy, dirty-sweet solo lines, and he delivers the raw and tasteful in even helpings.... Good Party Music!
