Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

Friday Dec 14, 2018 7:00 pm

PRESENTED BY KAAPA ETHANOL. Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his rich, intensely soulful vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry. In 2017, Josh was featured as a contestant on NBC’s The Voice, and the band completed their first European tour – a 27-city stint capped with a live album release from their show in Brussels, Belgium. The hard working band completed several national tours from 2015-2017, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states each year, including opening for George Clinton, Charles Bradley, Booker T Jones, and Muscle Shoals Revue. Their year-round touring schedule took them from coast to coast, including several major summer music festivals. For more information about Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal, CLICK HERE.
