Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
“What’s in a name…?” So mused the bard, and all too often the name doesn’t do justice to the subject. Not so with this Vermont octet. Kat herself, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful, and gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting.

On the other hand, one is presented with the words “Indomitable Soul Band”. Here, too, there are no misnomers involved: a rock solid rhythm section of bass, drums and keys; a powerful, three-piece horn section; an electric guitarist who dances beneath the surface before exploding to the top… and he harmonizes brilliantly, too. Seven players, each a soloist and entertainer in their own right, blending Memphis soul and new school R&B with a level of improvisation that more than a few Vermont bands have been known for. They aim right for the heart and move your soul without overlooking your ass. Confident, cool and, well… indomitable.

What’s in a name is what’s right in front of you on the stage at a Kat Wright and The Indomitable Soul Band show. Working their magic throughout the Northeast and preparing to extend far beyond the region, Kat and the band are on a simple quest to “send people out feeling better than when they walked in” to the show…

Karikatura
Karikatura is a New York based transglobal soul band, making life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. The band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, across the United States and Europe. An organic synthesis of all the music heard blasting out of car windows and shops onto the streets of NYC, Karikatura lives where cumbia meets hip-hop, reggae meets klezmer and indie-rock meets merengue. Neither purist nor revivalist, this is music of the present, for the future. Karikatura recently completed a tour of South & Central America with the American Music Abroad “American Voices” program and European Summer Festival tour. They are preparing for the release of their next full-length album "Ghost Light."
