About
The Southpaw Preachers are a high-energy, highly funky act who draw their inspiration from an eclectic mix of soul, funk blues, jazz, hip hop, R&B, and hard-hitting rock n' roll. Their mission is to update and honor classic and contemporary soul music, incorporating their own unique and deeply groovin' flare. Offering band sizes ranging from three to eight members, their versatility and flexibility can't be beat.

The Southpaw Preachers are comprised of dazzlingly skilled musicians from all over the country, from San Francisco to Chicago to South Carolina. These talented young performers formed a musical and personal bond while studying jazz at the prestigious University of North Texas, and have been playing together ever since. The group is led by front-woman Hale Baskin, and she is certainly a performer not to be missed! Colin Campbell is on keyboards, Lupe Barrera on Drums, and Skyler Hill on Guitar. Horns are Devin Eddleman, Jordan Carr, Kenny Davis, and Christian Ortiz.

Whether performing at a formal awards banquet or a relaxed backyard party, The Southpaw Preachers catchy sound and exemplary professionalism set them apart in the DFW scene.

You can hear The Southpaw Preachers live at least once a week in Dallas, playing in their stripped-down trio format (Keyboards, Drums, Vocals).
Fridays @ The Mitchell (Downtown) 10p-12:30a

I cannot begin to describe how pleased EVERY SINGLE PERSON was with this group at the party. Hale's voice is phenomenal! I'm so glad I heard about this site and I'm so happy I found Hale and her band. I got nothing but compliments on how wonderful the music was. These guys are honestly great! Everyone was in awe! The sound was great, their attitudes were great, they looked great- I couldn't be happier with our choice! To Hale and the band: Again, I want to thank you so much for making last night a success! You guys keep doing what you do. You were an absolute pleasure to listen to!

Hale and the band were even better than I was expecting. She was a pleasure to communicate with ahead of time (I am out of state) and really went out of her way to make this easy for me. On the night of our wedding, we were blown away by their talent! We had so many guests compliment the wonderful music, thank you so so much!!!!

Hale and her band are outstanding! I haven't heard a voice like hers in a very long time. The group handled each and every request beautifully from old standards to current pop ... they are all so talented! They were also very professional during the planning stages of the event. Hale, please produce a cd soon! I know over 100 people who'd be interested in purchasing one, so keep us in mind.

Hale and the band were a great addition to our wedding ceremony and reception. They were able to accommodate nearly every request we made of them. They even provided accompaniment for my grandparents to sing a duet during the ceremony! Great music and great vibe. A true class act.

The Southpaw Preachers’s Response:

We had a great time with the IdeaPlanet crew. Their new headquarters is incredible! More than once I had to drag musicians away from the amazing artwork and displays. Per industry standard, we take a 15-minute break every 45-50 mins. If this ran over a few minutes, it may have been due to the long restroom wait. I had to tell my guys "sorry, no restroom time" when it was obvious the line was longer than our break time. I sincerely apologize if this caused our breaks to run a little long. I have noted your suggestion and will take additional measures to be vigilant. Thanks so much Mike! Can't wait 'til next time.

I hired the band for my wedding and they were amazing. We only had a couple of conversations over the phone and the band was perfect! Everyone, from parents to friends thoroughly enjoyed the music, and I loved how the band encouraged participation from the guests. I am a musician, and many of my friends at the wedding are professional musicians, and there was nothing but praise for the group. Hale has a beautiful voice, and the talent of the musicians exceeded my expectations. They played a little swing, and picked up on how much or guests loved blues. For the First Dance, their rendition of Take Five was incredible!

The Southpaw Preachers’s Response:

Reflecting back on Victoria's wedding, it was so wonderful to see swing dancing at a reception! These two were pretty musical themselves; they figured out how to actually dance to "Take 5" - no small feat! I also have to compliment you two on your planning. You were so easygoing and laid back, wonderful to work for! I hope we see you two for you anniversary dance party!
