You may notice a bit of a lull in our performance schedule. We are in the process of writing new original music and hopefully will have one or two more gigs booked in the next couple of months.

The Soul Captives recently took a tour to Southern California. We were very well recieved at every performance, and want to thank everyone who went to our shows, danced, and purchaced CDs. Our tour was a huge success and we can't wait to get back down there and do it again! In the next week, there will be a page uploaded on this domain with pictures of all the fun we had!
