Soul brothers and sisters!
Big shout out to our friends at The Orlando Weekly for giving us some killer coverage today. We made Bao’s 2016 Undie Awards for Best Local Release! Also, photographer Jim Leatherman contributed our Fringe Festival gig this past April to the list of The five best Orlando concerts of 2016! Thanks Jim and Bao!
This year is coming to a close but we may have one more big announcement – keep your ear to the ground and eyes peeled on The Soul Enterprise!
Get on our mailing list for The State of The Sh-Booms – tour dates, new releases, and the whatnot. We’re not gonna blow up that inbox and we’ll never sell off your contact info.
Central Florida’s The Sh-Booms have taken a love for soul, rock ‘n’ roll, and throwing a party to create a unique, garage-soul sound of their own.
The seven-piece soul enterprise – comprised of Al “The Thump” Ruiz, The Supreme Queen Mizz Bren, Kevin “The Skin Blaster” Connolly, Davis “Twinkle Toes” Schleicher, Mike “The Slush Pump” Ortiz, and Nick “The Licks” Walsh – are a horn-fueled, soul-soaked presence on the stage, which they’ve shared with national acts such as Lee Fields, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, KRS-One, and Candlebox. Their fresh brand of garage soul has been recognized locally as well, as Orlando Weekly’s “Best Soul Act” for the past four years running.
Growing up immersed in a world of soul and doo-wop, raised by parents who have been known to get down a time or two on the dance floor of American Bandstand, Ruiz formed The Sh-Booms in 2011, looking to inject new energy into his music. The group quickly became known for their live shows – sweaty, high-energy sets accompanied by a fair share of dancing and whiskey – and their first EP, 1.2.3!, was released in 2013. The sound and lineup of The Sh-Booms have evolved since, most recently with the addition of front-woman Mizz Bren. The Supreme Queen, who was previously signed to Justin Timberlake’s Tenman Records and contributed backing vocals on his album, The 20/20 Experience, joined The Sh-Booms in early 2015.
The Sh-Booms will release a five-song EP in March of 2016 which they recorded with GRAMMY-nominated producer Alan Armitage (Boyz II Men) and was mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, The Kills). For booking, publicity, or press inquiries, email email@example.com.
