In recent years, there has been a massive revival in the soul/funk/rhythm & blues music genres. Some of the greatest of greats to ever walk onto the music scene were names such as James Brown, Otis Redding, Little Richard, Ray Charles and Solomon Burke. Most would not argue that these guys have defined and refined the very meaning of the word 'soul' time and time again.
And when many musicians today are ignorant to its existence, The Bo-Keys strive to create music that recaptures everything classic soul once was. Since their album debut in 2003, this Memphis band has garnered a wide range of positive critical attention. In addition to their many live festival performances, The Bo-Keys have also been seen gracing the silver screen in films such as Soul Men (starring Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac) and the Academy Award winning Hustle and Flow.
