THE OLD SOULS BAND
The Old Souls Band is a classic four piece from Rochester, NY that stuns audiences with music deeply influenced by a blend of funk, blues, jazz, and rock genres. The band plays classics that include unique takes on the Grateful Dead, Wilco, Herbie Hancock, and Bob Dylan. As young musicians, the band rocks audiences with an unexpected serious sound that resonates across generations.
Brody Schenk, on lead guitar, guides the band on a musical odyssey with concise rhythms and organic solo riffs that often take listeners to rock’s edge before reuniting with the band. At 16, Schenk, a Penfield native, plays across musical genres with a passion typically seen in older guitarists.
Influenced by great bass players including Phil Lesh, Geddy Lee, and Chris Squire, Jackson Wade at 15, plays bass guitar with deep roots in the cello. Wade delivers funky complex rhythms that give The Old Souls Band a rich and tasty foundation for rock.
Noah Lester at 17, commands the drums while influenced by greats including John Bonham and Roger Guth, Lester drives The Old Souls Band with consistent beats and time changes that keep the band in clock-work transition and on point.
Trevor Smith, alto saxophone, is the glue that binds The Old Souls Band guitar, bass, and drums with a soulful sophistication that elevates the band’s sound. His unique style reflects that of Nirvana and Pearl Jam with the added challenge of presenting his influences on saxophone. Being well versed in other genres such as blues/jazz Trevor uses his specific skill set to lift the band to the next level.
