Music That Takes You Back
South Canal Street Band Members
Our keyboardist and soulful singer Ken gives the band a diversity of sounds which brings the melodies of each song together. He is our versatile music-maker who sweetens our band through a variety of sounds that comes from his heart through his fingertips and singing.
Our bass player Ron enriches our music by adding a component of richness and fullness with each note he plays. He is the one who gives the depth to our songs as he plays and sings from his heart that adds an element of groove which enhances the spirit of our band.
Our guitarist Tom is musically ear-taught to bring complex sounds that are harmonious and heartfelt as an extension of himself. He adds an essence to our band with harmonizing singing as he loves playing knowing that there is always more to learn and give.
Our unseen infamous drummer who keeps the heartbeats of our band merging together in time with one other.
About The Band Itself
While there are only 3 of us, we bring a much bigger and complete band sound. We became South Canal Street Band (SCS) to give you a dance band, bringing songs mostly from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, including Motown, Funk, Soul, Rock, Pop and Country and much more. Our motto is “Music That Takes You Back”, so you will probably know every song we play. South Canal Street believes music, dance and songs speak a universal language to all people and we are passionate to share our music with everyone. We want you to come join us in expressing your love of music and our songs by dancing, singing along, or just listening to partake in the fun, energy, and enjoyment we strive to give you each and every time we play. We love what we are doing and we always want to make your experience with us the best it can be.
We added the video at the top as a sample of a live performance of us at a New Year’s Eve show for your viewing pleasure.
