Magnolia Sons (Nashville, Tenn.)
Magnolia Sons unabashedly and lovingly pays tribute to the Soul, R&B and Pop music of the ’60s and ’70s, delivering authentic-sounding retro songs with a bright, gleeful energy that gives them punch. Taking cues from legends like The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Supremes and other Motown foremothers and forefathers, the band has eight members, using a full horn section, piano, drums, bass, guitar and multiple vocalists to provide a full-bodied retro Soul experience.
YOU'LL DIG IF YOU DIG: The Temptations, Fitz and the Tantrums, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. (MB)
“...a sanguine set of unflinchingly upbeat retro power-pop and greasy, maximum R&B ...bursts at its seams with life-embracing good vibes and enough infectious rhythm to inspire fevered responses to the band’s calls for foot stomps and handclaps.” - the Nashville Scene
