About
Island Rock cracker-jacks, Soca Jukebox is one of the genre's premier show bands. This five-piece ensemble features a battery of shimmering steel pans, an array of Latin percussion, a fastidious rhythm section and incendiary guitar work. SJ's cast of trained professional musicians are multi-instrumentalists and engaging performers dedicated to "bringing the party".

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!

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!!

Soca Jukebox was AMAZING! I requested songs to be played at my wedding and if they didn't know them, they learned them. They were so nice and easy to deal with. They were on time and even stayed longer to entertain! All of the guests were talking about how great the band was and said they were the best they've heard. Soca Jukebox put the finishing touches on my wedding and made it even more perfect. Ned and Burgandy Robertson July 12, 2008

I was very satisfied with this groups performance. The songs they performed sounded a lot like the original producers. Their steel drums and percussion were awesome. I would recommend this group to anyone. Many of my customers that attend this event annually have asked me to consider bringing them back. If we do this type of party next year they will be highly considered for the job again. Once again, their style and sound of music was perfect for our event. Our age range of quests were 6 years to 90 years old. They all seemed to love the type of music this band played.

The group really knows their stuff when it comes to Caribbean, Calypso, Beach and Country music. We had different games at our party and they played exactly what we needed for our games. Their music covers all ages. I have had them perform for my annual community appreciation night for two years in a row and the people love them. I would highly recommend this group to anyone.
