The Soul Snatchers don’t claim to have invented Soul Music. Neither do they pretend to re-invent it. They… just HAVE it! And they LOVE to share it with Funk- Soul lovers in every corner of the globe.

Add to that the threeheaded copper section The Dynamite Horns, the tormented throat of female singer YoYo and the charismatic performances of singer Curtis T. and special guest vocalist Jimi Bellmartin…and all ingredients for a real Soul Party are present.
