Heart & Soul at Roscoe's
Heart & Soul was a dance band mainstay for the past 10 years in the Rogue Valley, but the group stopped performing when its keyboard player, Mike Whipple, moved to Portland.
Last month the band members reconnected for a show to benefit the Starlight Children's Foundation in Portland. The gig was such a success that the group decided to get together for the holidays and present two nights of high-energy dance music in at Roscoe's BBQ.
The shows start at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 26 & 27, at Roscoe's, 117 S. Main St., Phoenix.
The five-piece Heart & Soul features lead vocalist Marie Poppa, guitarist Charles Guy, bassist Richard Meyer and drummer David Bolen, along with Whipple.
The group will perform a range of pop music including Motown, funk and Latin dance hits. There is no cover for the shows at Roscoe's. Call 512-1046.
