Stump City Soul is Portland, Oregon's newest funk & soul group. They are: a core 4-piece of keys, bass, guitar, drums, with have a 5 piece horn section of trombone, bari sax, tenor sax, 2 trumpets and a dynamic, incredible lead singer. SCS has played many of the major venues in the Portland area and gets booked for private corporate and wedding events all year long. They also have long-standing relationships with several charities in the area, where you'll find them playing to support many outdoor walk/run fundraisers.
Formed in 2015, Stump City Soul arose from a group of musicians that valued the feel of soulful, danceable songs both old and new. Songs that couples can sing to each other - with love, drama and humor. Using a catalog of over 150 songs, SCS can tailor an hour-long set to be slow/fast, big or small - as an event needs. Songs range from classic-rock era radio hits (Rolling Stones, Joe Cocker, Marvin Gaye) to on-point soul hits (James Brown, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Sam Cooke) to modern songs that keep the dance floor jumpin' (Bruno Mars, Ben L'oncle Soul, etc) They also deliver requests for private parties, expanding their repertoire on-demand.
Stump City Soul is comprised of seasoned musicians and come ready-to-play with their own sound-system when necessary. Even with 10 players they can fit smaller stages or can partition for special events (no horns, smaller rhythm section). When booking them, please describe the location, venue, event length and any special needs (outdoor tents, etc)
