SOUL INCISION: Wide OpenFor Soul Incision, "It's never too late to rock 'n roll!" and "It's all about the fun!" Come share the good times and great songs!
They came up with the name Soul Incision to represent the fusion of the soul music they play (Many songs are 60's & 70's soul tunes from Memphis and Motown) and the medical day jobs most of them have at Vanderbilt University and Medical Center in Music City USA, Nashville, TN. By day, the members include accomplished physicians, nurses and administrators and computer programmers. By night these RNs, MBAs, MDs, PhDs, M Divs and MHAs shed their uniforms, coats, ties, and stuffed shirts to unwind, de-stress and have a great time playing the music everyone loves. This band added positive balance to their lives, and they've noticed that lots of people in all age groups relate to the music they play.
It all started in 1998. A few of them gathered to jam on some old rock & roll and R&B. Then they started playing for friends' parties. Everyone was having a good time. Now, they perform about 30 times a year, often at celebrations, charity events, conventions, weddings, corporate parties like the post CMA party for Capitol Records, clubs, and concert venues such as River Stages. They've traveled a fair bit along the way throughout Tennessee and Kentucky, as well as Las Vegas, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, Miami, New Orleans, Columbus, Dallas, San Antonio, Orlando, San Diego, Savannah, Cleveland, Raleigh and Crested Butte, CO.
Other exciting points have included cameo appearances with the band by Charlie Daniels, Vince Gill, Delbert McClinton, Jo Dee Messina, Blue Miller, Suzy Bogguss, Kathy Mattea, Billy Dean, Steve Cropper, Paul Overstreet, Trick Pony, Linda Davis, Gary Chapman and Deborah Allen. The band says all have been most gracious and encouraging, making for more fun. And Francis Preston at BMI awarded them an "Honorary Grammy" for their performance at CITR2003.
Their first CD in 2000 was titled "First Cuts", keeping on the medical-musical theme. And now continuing the theme, this CD is "Wide Open". Guess what might be next! Anyway, this CD contains new material and old classics. They recorded this CD to have fun, but just like the music, they want it to help others. Soul Incision donates the proceeds from the CD to Hospital Hospitality House, a non-profit organization that provides a home away from home for families and patients who face medical crisis.
