Their show features original hits as well as unique takes on familiar grooves that are soulful, funky, & cool. The make up of the band’s experience includes 100+ of years of studies in classical, jazz, funk, gospel, and blues, and all artists have played with or supported national/international talents of today.

‘The Soul Vortex’ has been a tight-knit group since 2017 where they cut their teeth at a premier speakeasy in Chicago called The California Clipper, where they held a monthly residency that guaranteed a lively crowd and high vibes. Riding a tidal wave of momentum, the band recorded a live album in Dec’19, but its release was severely halted by the pandemic.

In the summer of 2023, ‘The Soul Vortex’ released its debut album, recorded LIVE at The Promontory in Hyde Park, Chicago. The album was pressed to vinyl, and is exclusively available for purchase at Dorian’s record shop through 2023 and comes with access to their feature-length documentary.

‘The Soul Vortex’ frequents Chicago venues such as Dorian’s & Untitled Supper Club, has brought the party to many wedding receptions, and has partnered with various corporations such as lululemon, Volkwagen, American Institute of Architects, & Apple.
