The Soul Of Miami proudly presents a south Florida Showcase!
Join Soul Of Miami for a spectacular night of handpicked music! We could not showcase all the awesomeness of south Florida, but we found five very cool and very diverse bands to give you a sampling of the musical talent gracing our area. We also have a special fashion show of local designers to entertain you while the bands swap out. And a fabulous hostess to enliven the entire night. One of south Florida’s great food trucks will be onsite to satisfy your hunger. This is all taking place inside a brand new venue! You know we only bring you the good stuff, so you know this is going to be a great night. This is truly the Soul Of Miami!

Underground Junction featuring Steven Bauer
As a group, Underground Junction is inspiring to watch and even more pleasing to listen to. When you go out to a show, you want the band to look like they are having fun and you want the music to be pleasing to the ear. Primarily a 3-piece band, these guys know how to really blend their instruments together, however extra musicians and “sit-ins” are always added. This year Underground Junction will be performing at The Miami Music Festival with Actor/ Singer/Songwriter Steven Bauer. The band consists of “real” professional players with years of gigging experience. Chico Brown lays down the sweetest beats on a totally new and unique acoustic drum set up that features a 3-piece Conga set-up with Kick Drum and added toys. Glenn Goss is truly a Pro, with a great attitude and personality. BillyG brings his own unique rhythm style of Acoustic Guitar playing added to his even more unique vocal styling. If you are looking for a totally entertaining show with a lot of energy, great stage performance and a great set list then you want to see these guys perform.

Growing up with a family in radio and musical theater, Cat was introduced to a wide variety of music at a very young age. Her style is reflective of such an eclectic blend, infusing the sounds of old jazz & soul with today’s pop and R&B elements. Cat debuted her first independent album “Cat’s Outta the Bag” in December 2007 and is currently recording her sophomore release due out in March 2011. For more information, visit

Coffee House Gypsies
Both The Miami New Times and The Miami Herald compared The Coffee House Gypsies to the likes of great rock legends such as Fleetwood Mac and The Mamas and The Papas. Sun Sentinel called them “a band of nomads that keeps moving through different styles and genres.” The band has performed all over Florida and in New York City and has won several awards including one South Florida QOOL Shows Award for Best Pop Band and nine STATUS QuO South FL Live Music Awards in 2008 (including best show, best vocals, and best cover song) after receiving nominations in ten different categories. The band has a standing residency at Miami’s oldest and most famous bar and live music venue, Tobacco Road. The band maintains a very active role in the South Florida community, doing regular charity events and benefits for: Camillus House, Care Resource, AIDS Walk Miami, Best Buddies, The Susan G. Komen Foundation, and more. Currently the band is completing a new album.

The State Of
The State Of is the product of the marriage between Steph Taylor’s edgy piano/synth playing and Nabedi Osorio’s electronic-like live drumming. Their dark pop sensibility is born out of their hometown of Miami, FL and is reminiscent of artists ranging from the Bjork and the Eurythmics to Radiohead and the Cure. Taylor’s style of playing is often percussive and dark where Osorio’s drumming is melodic and when coupled, they create a dynamic sound larger than what’s expected out of two people.

Pocket of Lollipops
Visual art and indie musical performance group Pocket of Lollipops brings together the talents of husband and wife team Tony Kapel and Maitejosune Urrechaga. The Miami based duo have performed at various art spaces and live music venues around South Florida and the U.S., including Dorsch Gallery, Hollywood Art and Culture Center, and more traditional rock settings. They define their musical genre as sophisticated punk rock; their sound is noisy but organized, thoughtful and melodic. With Maite on bass and Tony on drums, their music is directly influenced by David Byrne and Lou Reed’s live performances; they identify with Sonic Youth, another band that features a musical collaboration by a married couple.

Don’t be fooled though, this isn’t Ms. Hopson’s first stint into the entertainment business.

Art: Jennifer Maria Cordoba
A photographer hailing from Miami, FL.
While her subject matter is diverse, her more notorious work is sensual in nature. She is the creator of the “Luscious” series- a project currently underway and delving more into her fascination with food, sex & art. One of the pieces from this series will be on display, as well another image from her monochromatic archives, “Black Mask Dream”, this Friday.

Food: Yellow Submarine
A revamped delivery truck painted bright yellow and tricked out with a big service window/little kitchen, YS’ menu is kinda Beatles-inspired (but also taps INXS and Queen), with sandwiches like the Lady Madonna (ham, Provolone, hot peppers, pesto) and Original Sin (ham, Genoa salami, pepperoni, Provolone, green/hot peppers, pesto), wieners like the Yellow Dog (100% beef frank, Provolone, mayo, pineapple sauce), and the Yellow Burger, with a beef & chorizo patty, Provolone, pineapple sauce, and crushed chips, who’re just feeling bent out of shape about your growing Ponch.
