Soul Fest – October 6th | 3-9PM | Chain Park

Join WUSM as we celebrate the roots of Soul music at Soul Fest, Saturday October 6th with Brotha Josh & the Quickness, The Icemen, and from New Orleans, The Stooges Brass Band!

3:30 PM – Brotha Josh & the Quickness
Brotha Josh and The Quickness is a neo-soul outfit based in Hattiesburg, MS. Their influences include classics such as Otis Redding, Al Green, and Stevie Wonder, and more modern artists such as Thundercat, Vulfpeck, Jamiroquai, and The Black Keys.


5:30 PM – The Icemen
Born in the sweaty grooves at legendary dive bar Nick’s Ice House, The ICEMEN blend the worlds of juke joint grit and an urban sophistication.  Hand picking the best blues, jazz, funk, and folk from the great American song book, the band delivers a powerful horn-driven show.  A true “musician’s band”, The ICEMEN administer a weekly deep healing to your very soul!

7:30 PM – The Stooges Brass Band
The Stooges Brass Band has earned their rank as one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans. The band consistently provides a welcome blast of true New Orleans spirit engaging audiences with their innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds, contemporary jazz and hip-hop beats.

Emerging onto the scene in 1996, the Stooges Brass Band has gained notoriety as a full-blown musical party immersing the crowd in a cut-loose vibe that is contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of New Orleans. The band has shared the stage with: Ozomatli, Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Shemekia Copeland, Pedrito Martinez Group, Galactic, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, The Funky Meters, and NPG, among others.
