I wish I was sitting here listening to Soca Jukebox right now. They were absolutely amazing!! Our son married a sweetheart from Japan so we were well represented by age and location - we had guests from 3 countries and 13 states. We live on a small lake and had a huge tent with Soca Jukebox and fireworks it was like the 4th of July all over again but even better because of them. One of our guests, is from Los Angeles and is in the music business - he said "WOW" where did you get these guys. Anyway, we sang and danced ALL NIGHT LONG!!

A live Soca engagement showcases 5 decades of well-known repertoire from diverse musical genres, reinvigorated by fresh, stylized arrangements and a high-energy percussion showdown. Their great song selection, top-shelf vocal talent with smooth harmony and tribal chanting offer sanctuary in an all-out Drum War. Soca Jukebox is interactive, crowd-pleasing and has a wide appeal to all ages and musical tastes. Their unique blend of Trop-Rock advances the category through classic hits in Rock, Reggae, Calypso and Soca ("SO-ul CAlypso") infused with charisma, humor, false bravado and Rasta-goodness.
While Soca Jukebox is now in their 13th season, the core of the band has been performing together since their college days. Formal studies included master classes with Trinidadian steel pan inventor/pioneer, Elle Mannette as well as numerous Caribbean and Latin percussion specialists. Devoted to the cultural legacy, but with an ear on innovation, Soca's talented players carry the music forward to uplift, entertain and share.
Soca Jukebox is always "In Season", transporting land-locked expatriates and those in need of a "3 hour tour" on a year-round musical getaway. From their Kansas City, MO home base, the ensemble is nationally touring to festivals, college campuses, casinos, clubs, corporate and private events or a venue near you! The band has accepted invitations to divert and delight disparate factions from heads of state to "parrotheads".
Jump up, feel the rhythm and say, "Yah, Mon" to this extraordinary ensemble, Soca Jukebox.
Let's get together and feel alright!
