The superb Rufus Stone Soul Band – Playing classic Soul throughout the UK since 1984!
Those that have followed the band will know that Rufus Stone Soul Band, based in their home town of Southampton, has been around in many guises since their start in late 1984 probably their strongest yet. After all this time you would expect that some of the sparkle would have gone, not a bit. They still have the same distinctive sound which ensures that they get the maximum involvement from their audience. Over the years they naturally have built a loyal following and it is this support that has kept the band not only on the road but still as soulful as when they started.
The music is authentic 60s soul with selections from The Blues Brothers, The Commitments, but the bulk of the set from the soul greats such as Otis Redding, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Joe Tex and many others. During their time together there have been a number of highlights which includes support to some of the top soul artists like Jimmy Ruffin, Edwin Starr, Curtis Mayfield, Geno Washington, Ben E King, and Gloria Gaynor.
The band has been as busy as ever gigging and producing their second album which includes favourite soul classics from their set. If you haven’t seen or heard Rufus Stone soul band yet then give yourself a treat!
Rufus Stone have performed at every kind of venue from The Royal Albert Hall to city theatres, cruise ships and open air events such as the Round the World Yacht Race and Goodwood Festival of Speed.
