Biography

With it's current line-up formed in early 2006, Soul Patch is a Traverse City, MI based band with music as versatile as its members. Together we hold a masters in groove. Individually we infuse styles from several backgrounds including, world beat, jazz, reggae, bluegrass, funk, surf, rockabilly, ska, blues, and straight up rock n’ roll. We never write a set list but are always prepared to feel our audience and bring them something they can move to. Our shows are constantly taking on a new form that is inspired on the spot by the borderless space between the band and the listeners. We play songs with purpose but are not afraid to improvise. We play covers from all over the musical world, Motown to modern and everything in between, always making them our own for a fresh unique delivery. Our original music spans three decades and can only be described at eclectic, taking ideas from any one of the three songwriters in the band and plugging them into the musical vessel that is Soul Patch. The output is a sweet ride of Organic grooves for your mind and feet.
