Band Details


SOULSTICE has an 8 piece line up of 3 singers female and male, providing leads, back up and harmony: Vicky Speer - also our MC, and Andy Primm - also guitarist and percussionist, and Chris Speer - also drummer.  The band is completed by musicians: Jim Ahrend on keys, Dimi DiSanti on guitar, Dave Moir on bass, Chief Sanchez on trumpet, Lee Taylor on sax.

Vicky and Chris Speer are also DJs - which they combine with our live performance.

Vicky customizes the event timeline and playlist with brides and grooms resulting in a smoothly unfolding celebration.                                                                                                   

The musicians of Soulstice combine an enormous amount of professional experience, playing and touring, from London to New York, LA to Las Vegas and beyond. The versatile band can become smaller and has done sophisticated jazz gigs, or augmented as the function and playlist requires for bigger events and venues, adding additional singers.

Our musicians have also performed for Wedding Ceremonies that we are playing the reception for. 

They are all comfortable playing many different styles of music - something that only very accomplished musicians can do well. No band in New Mexico covers  a wider range than Soulstice: Current dance hits, Funk, R & B, Rock, Country, Latin and Swing, as well as pleasing cocktail and dinner music. Most bands play one style of music - the problem with that is that audiences like all kinds of music, especially across generations, so to really create a great party Soulstice plays those key iconic favorites. 

Voted " Finest Musical Entertainment For Weddings And Events"  by New Mexico Event And Planner Magazine, Soulstice enjoys a great reputation among local Event and Wedding professionals because they have seen the band in action repeatedly and know how good they are.
