The Mighty Soul Drivers are CT's keepers of the Memphis Soul flame! The Mighty Soul Drivers bring the classic Soul sounds of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and points South to the hills of New England. The Mighty Soul Drivers take their inspiration from the giants of Southern Soul - Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Otis Redding and more and combine that with contemporary tunes written in the classic style. The Mighty Soul Drivers turn every venue they play into a Soul dance party!
The Mighty Soul Drivers made their debut at the 2012 Blues Challenge on May 17, 2012 at Black Eyed Sally's in Hartford CT, the annual event put on by the CT Blues Society. The Mighty Soul Drivers won the challenge that night, making them 2012 CT Blues Challenge Finalists.
Since this auspicious start, The Mighty Soul Drivers have played at events as diverse as The New Haven Festival of Arts & Ideas, the Celebrate! West Hartford Festival, and the long-running concert series in Hartford's Elizabeth Park. The Mighty Soul Drivers have played sold-out shows at Bridge Street Live in Collinsville CT, and appeared at top area clubs such as Black Eyed Sally's in Hartford, Theodore's in Springfield MA, Cafe Nine in New Haven and The Hungry Tiger in Manchester.
