The Gold Souls are bringing the driving grooves of funk, the rich textures of soul, and the compelling storytelling of the blues to the Northern California scene and beyond. Drawing from a wide range of influences and experiences, they deliver captivating lyrics and fresh arrangements over a vintage sound. Led by the dynamic Juniper Waller, the group is made up of young talent hailing from the Bay and Sacramento areas. With Darius Upshaw on guitar, Alex Severson on the keys, Billy D. Thompson on the drums, and Avery Jeffry on bass, each member has a hand in writing and song composition, making The Gold Souls a truly collaborative effort. 

The Gold Souls burst on the Sacramento music scene in early 2017, and are swiftly becoming one of the most promising new talents in the area, releasing their first album in 2018. 

2020 hardly slowed the Souls down, as they spent the year working on their forthcoming second album and live-streaming many concerts to their fans as they sheltered in place. They released their latest single, “Got It” in May of 2020 which promoted a message of community empowerment and unity. The single was accompanied by a collaborative music video with animation from artists all around the world. The Gold Souls rang in 2021 with a live-streamed NYE show at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, CA.

Get ready for Smokey The Groove, Chico, California's premier 7 piece Dance-adelic/Jazz/Funk/Rage ensemble! Smokey The Groove brings galactic grooves, a full horn section, and that fat booty shakin bass to the dance floor for your party pleasure.  Each show is a journey through time, space, and the beyond. 

Join us for an evocative adventure through musical serenity, chaotic nastiestness, and the love of funk. It’s kinda like Primus and Parliament/Funkadelic had a baby, and then that baby met a baby made by Pink Floyd and Prince, and their super baby grew up to play some bangin 'tunes, that would be Smokey The Groove.
