Vintage noun vin·tage \ ˈvin-tij \

of high quality and lasting value, or showing the best and most typical characteristics of a particular type of thing, especially from the past. — Cambridge Dictionary

“We are an 8 piece vintage soul band, doing it in the original style before Motown. It was at the cusp of original R&B from the 40’s and 50’s mixed with the Jazz and Gospel that Soul music was born! That’s the era that we are focusing on — the origin, the source. To me, it’s a more driving sound, more raw, more gritty, so real and honest. I guarantee that most people have never heard of Bettye Lavette, Jean Wells, Ricky Allen, Freddie Scott, et al. But, we are also looking to modern bands that play in that style (Vintage Soul) as well like Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Lee Fields and The Expressions, Saunn & Starr…. These bands provide the bridge from the original artists to the modern day. It is from here that we hope to make a difference, by making our own original music to share out with the rest of the world.” Eric White, The Elevations sax player
