About the Band
Hi-Pointe Soul Revue is the culmination of years of playing in the bars and clubs of St. Louis. Creating an original identity as a band within the confines of playing cover music is always challenging. To set itself apart from its contemporaries the band is guided by three principles: We want to play music that is timeless and funky, we want everyone, including ourselves, to have fun, and we want people to dance. The band has been delivering its unique blend of rock, soul and blues for the better part of a decade.
Using vintage gear and vintage sensibilities, Hi-Pointe Soul Revue is able to recreate the emotion of the classic recordings that defined the golden age of American music. Their intuitive ability to shift between improvisation and holding down a steady groove creates a sound that is fresh and relevant. As a single unit these five musicians weave tapestries of vivid sound. Hi-Pointe Soul Revue is like jeans and a leather jacket: classic, cool, and never goes out of style. This is soul music at its finest.
