Soul Playground have only been together since September

Under the direction of Laura Landsberg, this year’s R&B ensemble is set to take the stage one last time and it’s sure to be a show to put down on the calendar.

Though they’ve only been playing together since September, Soul Playground (as they’ve come to call themselves) feels like a band that’s been on the road for years. The rhythm section keeps the groove tight as the four-part vocal harmonies soar out of the speakers.

The band features a full rhythm section, horns and some of the best vocalists this school has seen.

This nine-piece band pulls some of the grooviest tunes from each decade playing Sam Cooke all the way to Janelle Monae and everything in between. If you love music there will be a song to get you off your seat and onto the dance floor.

The night will kick off with trip hop tunes by Hello Dynamo and finish with beats provided by DJ Dopey with Tassnata and Rochester (aka Juice). So come celebrate with the students at the Spiritbar on April 21. The show starts at 8 p.m.

Admission is free for all Selkirk College students until 9:30 p.m. then $5 at the door.
