Free Radicals Dance band

Based in Solvang CA

A 7 up to 11 piece group featuring up to four lead vocalists (two male and two female), electric guitar, keyboards, electric bass, drums, percussion, tenor sax, trombone and trumpet performing the best Motown, Soul, Blues and oldies in addition to classic jazz. We can play everything from the 40's to the mid-70's, with a great set modern Top-40 dance tunes sprinkled in! A great "old-school AND new-school" sounding approach for larger events.

We perform on our top-of-the-line JBL/Crown PRX500 series sound system capable of over 6000 watts of crystal clear, powerful sound. We bring along a professional sound engineer with over 18 years experience to run the mix! Awesome LED lighting and lighting engineer are available as well for a concert-quality experience.
