SOUL’D OUT plays a custom blend of Rhythm and Blues, Classic Rock, Soul, Blues and Funk. The band plays upbeat, high-energy songs that only an eight-piece horn band can provide. Most members play multiple instruments and/or sing with extraordinary results. Their instrumental pallet includes lead and rhythm guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, two trumpets, two saxes, harmonica, trombone, congas, and a large dose of what the band calls their ''secondary'' weapons of mass percussion. Those include tambourines, claves, woodblocks, afuches, cowbells, guiros and whatever else they can get their hands on.

 

The band was born in the fall of 2003 from the desire and determination of band members Mike Reid, Keith VanDyke and Paul Wronski to put together a diversified group of musicians that could comfortably play a broad mix of music. With the additions of Tom LaNoue on lead guitar, Tom Trimbach on trumpet, Mark Blauvelt on bass and lead singer Bubba LeClair the band played their first professional gig at the Porto Bello Grand Hall in downtown Grand Haven in January of 2004. In June of 2005, Mark Sluiter joined the band replacing Tom Trimbach.  In 2007 Bruce Bos replaced Mark Blauvelt on bass. "When Bruce moved out of state in 2010, Rick Hunter joined the band on bass."

The SOUL'D OUT Band plays songs from 70s horn bands like Chicago and the Ides of March and funk bands like the Tower of Power and the Average White Band. They also delve in classic rock from groups like Santana, Tom Petty, and Rare Earth. Add in some soul and rhythm and blues from artists like Sam and Dave, The Rascals, Van Morrison and Wilson Pickett and you start to get the picture. If the song has soul, the band wants to play it!
