About Us

Ten musicians have come together to give the Midlands a new band with a special twist.  Heart ‘n Soul band members give of their time and talents from the heart and offer a show that energizes the audiences through the soul in their music. Members represent careers such as national park ranger, dentist, certifed public accountants, attorneys, computer programmers, nurse, engineer, and CFO.

Dedicated to bringing back the sounds of the 50s and 60s to today’s audiences, the band includes several musicians listed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Macon, Ga. Many backed up or opened for legends such as James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Billy Stewart, The Temptations, Chicago and Stevie Wonder. The musicians have performed on recordings that are still being played today.

Heart 'n Soul is registered as a 501(c)3 nonprofit and was organized on the principle of service above self.  Payments received by Heart ‘n Soul for events are donated to various charities the band supports, or may given back to a charity that contracts with Heart ‘n Soul for their event.

Heart ‘n Soul schedules a limited number of events each year and considers each opportunity on an individual basis. The band reviews the mission of the nonprofit/charity, its programs and fiscal responsibility to aid in its decision.
