About
The Sonja Lee Band plays a fantastic blend of jazz, blues, R&B, rock and original tunes. With an extensive song list, we are able to accommodate quite a variety of tastes. We can provide a simple trio for an intimate/smaller event or the full band for the ultimate experience. We are frequently hired to play dances and also are available for private events and parties. We have an excellent reputation in the community and enjoy playing at some of the areas finest venues.

This band is fronted by Sonja Lee, a powerhouse of a singer whose evocative, smoky voice runs the gamut of emotions from sweet and sassy to earthy, sultry and full of fire. She has been wowing music critics and listeners alike since her first CD released in 2012.

Sonja has assembled a band filled with high caliber talent. Bassist, Robert "Goldtooth" Ray, has played for over 45 years and is a master of his craft. Drummer, Grant Wilson, is one of the Northwest's most tasteful drummers with his vast knowledge of different dance rhythms and styles and his ability to backup a singer without over-powering an audience. Guitarist, Tim Volpicella, joined the band in 2017-2018. and plays with some of the areas best dance bands and is the most recent addition to the Sonja Lee Band. His tasty playing and energy are a boon for the band.

Here are few review summaries for your information:

From the Blue Suede News...
"Lee's rich, deep alto can sound sweet, sassy and earthy one minute, silky and sultry the next, and then explode with excitement and emotion. There's no studio trickery here; no Autotune, no smoke and mirrors, just great singing and playing.
...An old friend of mine and I used to talk about records in our collections we deemed as “Late Night Albums.” Sonja Lee's Telling It Like It Is falls into that category for this journalist, Sonja Lee's sophisticated music is a balm for the soul."

From the Washington Blues Society Bluesletter:
"The Sonja Lee Band is a well-conceived and compelling mix of jazz and blues, the vocals are a paragon of excellence and the music top notch. Telling It Like It Is is a fantastic album and I give it my highest recommendation."

From Margaret Bikman, Entertainment Editor for The Bellingham Herald:
"Blues songstress Sonja Lee has a voice that ranges from passionate and earthy fire to fun-loving teases; the listener can feel both her smoldering soul and her tempting smile in the songs she's selected for her debut CD, "Telling It Like It Is." From playful tunes like "He's a Tramp" to the vibrant "I'm Feeling Alright," Sonja is bound to bring down the house and gets her audience up and dancing."
