About The Bands: 

Westside Soul Surfers: 

Made up of some of the finest musicians the Muskegon area has to offer, the Westside Soul Surfers are a smokin’ 10-piece R & B, funk and soul powerhouse that plays a little bit of everything, including Steely Dan, Santana, Toto, Etta James and Joe Cocker. “We just find some of the best songs with horns and do them!” And they do, with trumpet, sax, trombone, and more. A bold, big brass sound that will make you want to get down and rock out.

Their wide variety of songs offer a little something for everyone; ranging from oldies, to current top 40 hits, classic rock to smooth R&B, country to high energy dance music, and everything in between.
