Blazing Soul, Funk and Rock with a wall of horns is how one could try to describe The Soul Juice Band. However, a "song writing" band is how they would describe themselves. The crowds who see the band live are treated to a sound experience that is unique and powerful enough to carry them on a journey unmatched in the industry today. The band combines 5 killer horns, a screaming B3 Hammond organ, heavy guitar riffs and a gritty, soulful singer in creating a dynamic fusion that is unique to many listeners ears. After releasing their single "Brown" against racism worldwide, the band is readying to release their first, self-titled 10 song album in the summer of 2021 which will be preceded by the singles "Brand New Day", "Julio Jones" and "Still Beautiful to Me" starting in May/June of 2021.
The Soul Juice Band started to break out in 2017 when they were recognized as "The Best Brass Band" in Las Vegas for 2017 by NPR Nevada in the Desert Companion Magazine and since then they have been booked all around the western United States. The band's credits include playing at Vegas hotspots: Container Park, Sand Dollar Lounge, Bunkhouse Saloon, The Smith Center, Big Dog's Brewery, Fremont Street, and Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip. Before Covid shutdowns in 2020, the band was in the midst of a residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay where they host "The Get Down" for Child Haven twice a month. The band has been gaining more notoriety and has opened for national acts Niki Crawford, Big Sam's Funky Nation at the Brooklyn Bowl, The New Breed Brass Band and Arise Roots.
The band has become a festival attraction in closing The Pigs for Kids Festival, Neon Reverb Festival, UNLV Reb Fest, The New Vista Craft Beer Festival, The Las Vegas Downtown Beer Festival, The Las Vegas Sangria Festival, The Las Vegas Foodie Fest and the Zion Canyon Music Festival where they shared the stage with Fishbone as a headliner.
Whether laying down their funky, soulful originals or blowing the crowd away with their skillfully arranged covers for 5 horns, this is one band you have to see live to believe. The band is made up of gritty, lead vocalist Dave Tatlock, keyboardist/band leader David Rogers, guitarist Joe Bonasorte, bass player Alan Butterfield and drummer Jared Leaper Two trumpet players, Lance Aguirre and Isaac Tubb; trombone player, Kevin Mullinax; Bari sax player Justin Marquis; and tenor sax player Mark McArthur round out the band and help create the original horn sound of this fantastic assembly
