The Soul Purpose Band serves up your favourite 60’s & 70’s Soul, Motown and R&B tunes with a sprinkle of today’s hits mixed in for good measure. Formed by a group of physicians and a lawyer, they were originally and aptly named “ Malpractice”. They have been performing in and around Vancouver for over twenty years including at such iconic venues as the Yale Hotel (Vancouver’s Home of the Blues), the famed “Commodore“and even the Empress Hotel in Victoria.
Soul Purpose is known for their exciting shows. They are a flexible 9–piece band that know how to satisfy a diverse audience and keep them dancing all night long. They are best known for their renditions of songs by Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Adele & Stevie Wonder. With two dynamic female lead vocalists, funky organ, awesome bass, rhythmic beats, searing guitar and a blazing hot horn section, there is never a dull moment. In fact, half of the band sings, so if you are looking for variety, Soul Purpose definitely knows how to deliver!
