First Listen: The Kinsman Dazz Band bring a "Soul Jam"

(January 9, 2019) Most SoulTrackers know the hot 80s R&B and funk band, The Dazz Band. But before they hit it big, the group was known as Kinsman Dazz, and they made quite a stir in Ohio before taking the national stage.

Dazz Band co-founders Michael Calhoun and Kenny Pettus (along with new members George Pearson, Eugene Wilson, Daniel Spearman, Rick Marks, Joseph Payne, Ollie Bohannon, Danny Wilson, Moe Betta Beatz) have reclaimed the funk with their new version of the Kinsman Dazz Band - now called the Kinsman Dazz Band All Stars, and it sounds to us like they’ve hit the mark with his brand new single, “Soul Jam.” The song is a cool blend of soul, funk and dance music that should sound just right for steppers. And the message is as fun as the musical vibe.

Check out “Soul Jam,” our newest SoulTracks First Listen, and welcome back that Dazz-ling sound of Michael, Kenny and company.
