"Soul Elite" is vastly becoming one of the leading Soul/Funk bands in the New York Tri-State area.
With Charmaine Patterson at the helm, it's no coincidence that Soul Elite is on a forward progression toward excellence. The Fall 2003 edition of Elegant Bride magazine and the Englewood magazine, Winter 2006 issues have both featured Charmaine in their publications and put focus on her career as a vocalist and band leader.
Formally of the world famous "Soul Solution" band and the CEO and Founder of Crunch Time Productions, she is an authority in live music. Soul Elite is a premiere party band comprised of seasoned professionals, largely used for Weddings, Private Parties and Corporate Events.
Charmaine, the featured vocalist of Soul Elite, is the cherry on top of a fine combination of musical talent. They are exciting, engaging, efficient, energetic and will be a conversation piece way after the party has ended. Be in their audience and be impressed!

"I liked the band at my wedding reception, nothing against them, but these folks are amazing!" - Matt Lauer, The Today Show
“Throughout the night several people stopped to ask me where in the world we had found this band! The energy in the room was tremendous, there was never a time when the dance floor wasn't full, and the flow of the party (thanks to you!) was flawless.” - Susan & Alan Bendes
" I Just wanted to say thanks for everything. Everyone is talking about how great the band was. Our wedding was amazing and the band was a huge part of making the evening a success. I know that word is spreading about how great you were and some of our friends will probably call you in the future. Keep us on your list and we'll pass it along when you play in town. Thanks to everyone, and hopefully we will get to see you guys again soon. "
“You want to talk about a show band – this is a premiere show band, ladies and gentlemen.” – Al Roker, The Today Show
