What happens when you bring together 7 musicians from different musical backgrounds and experiences? The Saints is what happens! Playing originals and cover tunes, they mix it up, playing funk, blues, R&B, gospel, and rock. The Saints four vocalists all sing lead, providing an exceptional variety of sound for the listener, and their four part harmonies will absolutely lift your spirits. The joy they experience while playing is obvious and extremely contagious. With two guitarists trading leads and the rhythm section holding down the bottom, The Saints will take you down to New Orleans for a full night of groovin’ revelry.
