About
As the name implies, Soul Purpose is steeped in a true Soul/R&B tradition that offers the audience a combination of dance hits and soulful sounds from the '60's to the '80's, with an occasional tune from recent/current pop charts. With 11 members, including a 4-piece horn section, they regularly cover tunes by such artists as Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye and Gladys Knight.


You will find them playing nightclubs, weddings, private parties, corporate events, civic events and festivals. Soul Purpose has also recently been booked to open for artists such as Peter Noone, Mickey Dolenz and Bobby Sherman (Teen Idol Tour), The Beach Boys, The Tams, The Impressions, and The Swinging Medallions, while appearing at The Macon Cherry Blossom Festival, Stone Mountain's Yellow Daisy Festival, Six Flags Over Georgia and Lake Lake Lanier Islands' concert series.

The Soul Purpose Band was great. This was the second time I had used them for a corporate event and they did not disappoint. They were very accommodating to our special requests and are very talented. Definitely recommend them if you want your guests to have a fun time!

Working with Dave from Soul Purpose was a pleasure. He was able to accommodate all of our needs and did a wonderful job of playing a song that wasn't necessarily the Soul Purpose style. I would highly recommend Soul Purpose for any wedding or event. I can't even begin to tell you all of the wonderful praise they got from all of our guests and even had an inquiry as to how we booked them. Book Soul Purpose and they will exceed all of your expectations!

Soul Purpose was the best decision we made for our Barrister’s Ball event. The band was professional, entertaining, and talented. All the guests enjoyed Soul Purpose and had nothing but positive things to say about them. Strictly Soul and Motown, played and performed with talent and class. Thanks so much for everything!

No matter where I was in the park yesterday, people were dancing to "Soul Purpose". You can tell when a group really loves what they are doing and that completely describes Soul Purpose. I have already recommended them to a friend and I know I will continue to do so.

Soul Purpose Band video does not do their live performance justice. I am a musician, played in many bands, could have turned pro and know music as well as anyone. The event was my daughter's wedding ! I wanted a band with a full sound that could REALLY play the soul music. Soul Purpose Band IS IT ! Dave Penn was super to work with and he has a passion for getting it right, handling the business side and logistics in a very professional manner. Band members were first class peoople. Guests said this was the best wedding band they have ever heard and many guests were from MEMPHIS and have heard the original artists ! SOUL PURPOSE BAND is a GREAT CHOICE !!!

Well, Everyone that came to our wedding absolutely loved this band. Dave Penn is great to work with, and extremely thorough in responding to questions and concerns. My wife and I had one brand new song request(Isn't She Lovely), and two other songs that were off their regular list of requests, and they made both happen, something we both appreciated. I recommend this band if you are looking for a memorable experience and great time! Thanks! Brandon Strozier Columbus, GA.
