We are an eight piece old school soul band performing classic R & B music. Stax City, s impressive setlist includes tracks from Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Rufus Thomas, Johnny Taylor and Tower of Power.
We have had Stax city annually for wine club events at our small winery. Our members love their energy and I love their reliability. They are punctual, respectful of the property, and can play! The musicians are very talented with a huge book of favorite songs. Cliff is easy to work with and is always eager to make our parties successful.
I wish I could give more than 5 stars. From the first song everyone was up on the floor dancing. All members are amazing musicians and you cannot go wrong with a fantastic horn section. Cliff and the boys turned up early and were ready to go right on time. They were very respectful of our event and asked how we would like the night to flow. Willard is a wonderful front man with a great voice. The set list was perfect for our crowd. I looked around and saw my 76 year old neighbor dancing with my 26 year old coworker. I received so many calls and emails the next day saying how fantastic they were. I think they even got a private booking out of it. It was a magical night, people had a great time and I'm already looking forward to taking a crowd to see them perform again. I cannot thank them enough for making our event a huge success.
