Music on the Town Concert Series - SOUL CONNECTION

  • 131 East Main Street Dandridge, TN, 37725 United States (map)

Join us in Dandridge, TN for Music on the Town, a concert series that runs from August 23rd - October 11th.

Originally formed in 1966 under the name of Soul Sanction, this nine-member group from Oak Ridge High School became one of East Tennessee's favorite soul, blues and oldies bands. In 1968, they won the Tennessee State Battle of the Bands and competed in the National Finals in Atlantic City, New Jersey. They played mostly for private functions but also opened shows by Ray Charles, B. B. King, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and James Brown. With their combination of keyboards, horns, guitars, and drums, blended with dynamic male and female vocals and harmonies, Soul Connection covers a wide musical spectrum of Rhythm & Blues, Soul, and dance music, all done with infectious energy and unmistakable style.
