I would like to raise funds to help out the members of East Bay Soul during this time of uncertainty. All of our gigs have been cancelled. Yes, we have been able to reschedule some later in the year and those are also uncertain, the EBS members are totally out of work now and have no other gigs in this unpredictable future. I’m asking you, our True Funk Soldiers to support the musicians you love performing on stage (with any dollar amount) and hopefully we’ll be back on that stage soon. 100% of the funds will go to the EBS band members who all have been effected by the COVID – 19 Virus lockdown.
Nick Milo, Kay-Ta Matsuno, Herman Matthews, Del Atkins, Johnnie Bamont, Steve Nieves, Michael Stever, Lee Thornburg, Darryl Walker.
I set up the PayPal Pool account because they do not take a credit/debit card % taken from a Go Fund Me account and this allows me to send money directly to them via PayPal.
AS YOU KNOW, VENUES, LARGE AND SMALL, AND ALL MUSICIANS THAT PERFORM AT THEM, OUR HOSTS, THE STAFF, CREW, SERVERS, RESTAURANTS AND BARS ALIKE HAVE BEEN DRASTICALLY EFFECTED DURING THESE TRYING TIMES WITHIN THE ENTERTAINEMENT INDUSTRY AND ACROSS THE BOARD! WE ARE DOING OUR BEST TO RESCHEDULE EVENTS TO MAKE SURE WE CAN BRING AS MANY SHOWS TO OUR FANS LATER THIS YEAR. SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!

While Grammy and Emmy nominated arranger and trumpeter Greg Adams will forever be renowned as a co-founder of the legendary Tower of Power, it’s exciting to note that his equally explosive ensemble East Bay Soul is quickly closing in on its first decade of kickin’ recordings and performances. The brass fired ensemble’s stirringly eclectic latest album CONVERSATION has it all and, per its title, connects on many emotional levels. It’s got loose, greasy funk, easy flowing traditional swing, sly strutting sensuality and phenomenal, brass fired R&B vocal tunes by lead singer Darryl Walker – including a searing twist on an Otis Redding classic. Get in this CONVERSATION!
For Immediate Release: Greg Adams and East Bay Soul Conversation CD
It has been nearly a quarter century since the genre chameleon trumpeter and arranger became a leader in his own right with his ground breaking debut Hidden Agenda. With Greg Adams’ approach that music is a language… the CONVERSATION continues. You will sense a direct connection with the live feel of the music, the open breath of each note and the collaboration of each player. Read More
