SoulBreakers will play tonight
The SoulBreakers are a rhythm & blues band from Amarillo, Texas. They have performed over 500 shows since they began back in March of 1996. Collectively they have over 125 years musical experience. Over the years, the members have performed on shows with many of the greats of the music industry, including ZZ Top, Joe Cocker, Canned Heat, Huey Lewis & The News, Jonny Lang, Ian Moore, The Ventures, Muddy Waters and many more. Their most recent CD release is “Black & White Blues,” which features original material as well as a few popular standards. The following is an excerpt from an article in the Amarillo Globe-News by Shanna Foust-Peeples: “Watching the SoulBreakers play is a lot like watching your next door neighbor get up and start performing well-polished magic tricks. Here’s this average Joe on the stage doing these jaw-droppingly cool things and going through it so matter-of-factly that you do a doubletake to make sure it’s the same guy. “ Each member of the four-man rhythm and blues band looks like the guy you work with or the guy behind you in the grocery store line. They don’t surround themselves with a hip aura of musician slackership. About the only attitude they have is expressed in co-guitarists Steve Hathaway’s maroon beret and Woody Key’s old-fashioned Converse “Chucks” high tops. But then, these guys don’t need attitude, they know they rock. They just don’t like to talk about themselves that much. They’d rather get up and play.
