Do you love the Gaslight Theatre? Then this will be a real treat for you! Come see The Socials, an 11-piece soul band featuring: the one and only Blues Brother, Gaslight Theater’s Charlie Hall (vocals), Rebecca Carlson (vocals, Jive Bombers and the Jane Crowe Band), Genevieve Gaus (vocals, Genevieve & the LP’s), Alex Flores (vocals and tenor sax, Bad News Blues Band); Mike Blommer (aka “Johnny Guitar”, Bad News Blues Band), Rich Katz (keyboard), Aaron Emery (drums), Sam Eagon (bass), Kevin Shumaker (baritone saxophone), Rick Peron (trumpet), and Salvador Lopez (trombone). The Socials create a unique sound and vocabulary of soul, R&B, Motown, funk and the blues from the 1960’s to today. The Tucson music scene makes The Social’s “Music for the Soul II” a dynamic experience. The show will feature music from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, The Temptations, The Jackson Five, Sharon Jones & Dap Kings, James Brown, Sam & Dave, Otis Redding, Chaka Kahn, Sly & The Family Stone and many more.
Music for the Soul was first performed last summer when the Gaslight Theatre and The Socials joined together to host a benefit concert to help the Hall family. Charlie Hall and family have been going through a difficult time recently when two of his four family members (father and daughter) were diagnosed with terminal cancer. The support of good friends and Green Valley residents will provide a great opportunity to help the Hall family. The Socials are excited and grateful to share “Music for the Soul II” with the Quail Creek community.
