**SURE FIRE SOUL ENSEMBLE** "The deep funk revival was ignited way back in the 90s by The Poets of Rhythm in Germany, the Dap-Kings family in New York.. or, before anyone else, The Greyboy Allstars in San Diego, where a new instrumental soul band is following in the footsteps of its elders: The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble. Their blend of influences from those 3 legendary bands is surely addictive, and their first 45 is announcing some great news for the future!" - Paris Djs The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble was born in 2012 with myself and several other core members from the San Diego area including: Chris Lea on sax/flute (Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Orchestra,) Kiko Cornejo Jr. on congas (Quetzal, Makina Loca,) local SD Latin Jazz legend, Bill Caballero, on trumpet, Nick Costa on guitar, Matt LaBarber on bass (K23 Orchestra,) Peter Williams on drums, and my wife Sheryll Felten on shekere. Under my direction, we started with some material I had been working on for a few years, and before too long began writing new tunes collaboratively. We added young sax/flute talent, Jesse Audelo (In Motion Collective, San Diego Symphony) shortly after. Now 5 years, four 45rpm singles, and 2 full length albums later... we have had the opportunity to perform all over California and Oregon; both headlining and opening for many of the best bands in any genre. We have held down several monthly residencies in San Diego and have had very regular appearances at The Boom Room Room in San Francisco. We have also partnered with one of the top independent Funk/Soul labels in the world: Colemine Records. Other notable bands that have released music with Colemine include: Orgone, Jungle Fire, Durand Jones and The Indications, and The Monophonics. $12 ADV
