Georgia Soul Council will delight Atlanta United Match goers at Elliott Street - both Pre and Post Saturday's Atlanta United Match at the MB! Georgia Soul Council, originally formed in Atlanta in 2010 as the backing band for Otis Redding III, reconvened in 2011 with a shift towards the 70’s era breakbeat Soul-Jazz that is their real musical passion. 2012-13 has seen GSC bring their funkified live performances to the people of the southeastern United States, and they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Lee Fields & The Expressions, the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Papa Grows Funk, Col. Bruce Hampton, the Rebirth Brass Band, and many others. Georgia Soul Council’s new full-length album “Thickens Upon Standing”, released independently on July 16, 2013 to a fantastic reception from the worldwide soul-funk community and rave reviews, is available now through online and retail outlets, including georgiasoulcouncil1.bandcamp.com.
“Operating with a deep rhythmic pocket, raw vocals, and a knack for tastefully filling in space, the Georgia Soul Council looks to bring funk to a venue near you. When you see them, get ready to boogie.” -Chris DiBenedetto, whereyat.com
