On bass, is Grammy nominated producer John Linn, and on drums is Edwin Coleman III, always bringin' the funk and groovin' hard. Portland's own Regina K, Mark Wyatt, and Porsch Anthony share their soulful vocals styles. Lewis Livermore and Dave Mills carry the backbone sound of the Soul Vax horns on trumpets, with Ron Regan, Gary Harris, & Timothy Bryson on saxophones. Don't miss our next show.

The band's new CD, "Soul Vax Live in PDX" is selling fast and has received wonderful reviews (please visit our website and read more). Our third CD, "What is Hip?" featuring legendary Tower of Power guitarist Bruce Conte was recently reviewed by DownBeat Magazine receiving ★★★1/2 . It is an honor to be recognized nationally by DownBeat Magazine.

“Folks in the Pacific Northwest are lucky to have a real soul band this fine and exciting. This New Englander is jealous.
