Soul Project NOLA

  • Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

With soulful grooves and impeccable musicianship, The Soul Project  brings the vibrant spirit of New Orleans everywhere they go.  Crowds can't help but "let loose" to their energetic and original mix of Funk, Jazz, Soul, Blues, and Gospel. 

And after 4 long years of hustling,  the self-proclaimed ambassadors of funk have released “The Long Hustle”, the follow-up album to their 2013 Offbeat Magazine’s  “Best Of The Beat” nominated debut album, “Music For Movers & Shakers.” The release, the first on the Soul Universal Productions label, represents not only the last 4 years of hard work and constant playing, but the complete journey of the Soul Project from its inception in 2001 until the present.  With some retooled tracks [like Celia, Down By The Riverside and What’s the Meter (With You)] that have finally been realized in their intended form, to brand new offerings (What We Got, BedBugs, Spotlight),  compositions from saxophonist David Ludman (Blue Snail) and Jeremy Habegger (Gsus), and the band’s New Orleans-inspired cover of The Beatles’ “Blackbird”,  this album has something for everybody.   

Finding inspiration in the music of the masters such as Walter “Wolfman” Washington, the Meters, the Neville Brothers and Galactic, the band has been concocting their own heady brew of funk in the great New Orleans tradition for over a decade. Long-standing residencies on world-renowned Frenchmen Street have enabled the band to hone their unique sound, while festival appearances (New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, French Quarter Festival, Jazz in thePark) and regular tours have allowed them to share their music with a wider audience.

Charlie Brown has been singin' in the bars and clubs, and at churches and parties around New Jersey since the late 60s.  His punk rock troubadour son Chris has been singin' barroom singalongs around the tristate for the last 20 or so years.   The combination of the two is a blending of age gaps and musical stylings united by their voices that go so well together.

The Adlers

The Adlers Band – a fabulous band that has musical roots that extend back to September 1979 at the hands of founder and guitarist Adi Adler, singer and “band mother” Tina Adler, along with their son Barry on accordion and Eddie Spatarella- “band brother” on drums. Austrian and German Alpine music formed the core, and as time progressed, additional musicians to the band- including one of New Jersey’s top Polka band leaders of the 1950’s and 1960’s Tony Szurka helped to launch this band into performing its Polish repertoire and nudging the band in a new positive direction. As musical tastes had changed and time marched on into the new Millennium, The Adlers Band adapted to the changes keeping its core music that remains timeless to its nature, but also now features Party Rock music that conforms to the demands of modern times.

The latest band consists of the original Adlers with Eddie Spatarella, and now including Johnny Grisbacher (Sax and Clarinet), John Miksza (Lead Guitar), Anthony Del Bagno (Acoustic Guitar and Bass Guitar), and Dana Sylvander (Trumpet and additional Brass) and our newest addition, our very special female singer Lisa Podesta joining in 2015 - presenting one of the most intense voices in the industry.

The Adlers are most proud to feature world class entertainer Mike Killmer into their fold. Mike is a former musician of The Dominoes International and MC at Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ- Hunter Mountain Alps Festival, and guest musician of 18 time Grammy Award winner – The Jimmy Sturr Orchestra. This latest compilation of The Adlers Band blends the perfect amount of Austrian- German - American flavor into one of the perfect Oktoberfest / Party bands available in the USA today.

Bavarski —  A new brand of polkas

What do you get when you mix when you mix one of the hottest jazz organists with one of the most versatile drummers around and an opera singer? New York City’s newest Polka Sensation- BAVARSKI! Of course, these aren’t just any musicians putting on lederhosen and pumping out Roll out the Barrel!! Ron Oswanski grew up with an accordion in Toledo, Ohio long before he learned about bebop—listening and playing with his father’s polka band. Also hailing from the land of mud hens- Eddie Biegaj, was singing Polish folk songs with his concertina and accordion while starting an early journey into polka superstardom as a founding member of the Grammy nominated Toledo Polkamotion, after getting his formal classical voice training. Add the foreign element of Wayne Dunton (a native of the far off land of New Jersey) who was caught stealing Kishka at family Polish weddings and toured nationally with many world class bands while gigging and recording with numerous jazz, rock and classical luminaries. To round out the quartet of polka-rockin’ all stars, add the 2nd New Jersey element of Ernie White to the equation..  Ernie, sharped his musical skills along side his contemporaries Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi in the hey-day of rock-n-roll in New Jersey.  He continues to write, produce, and perform on a very high standard keeping rock-n-roll in Trenton alive!  With this quartet, you have a band that has the old soul of polka men, the full repertoire of a rocking party band, and the sophistication of jazz cats….

Polka Country Musicians

Polka Country Musicians

Ignoring the advice of music teachers who feared he was too young, Wally Dombrowski began trumpet lessons when he was only five. His parents, both of Polish heritage, brought Wally to polka shows as a toddler and he was enamored by the trumpet by age two. When his rhythmic drumming on sand pails caught their attention, he was encouraged to learn polka with his brother Rich. Rich founded the Polka Country Musicians in 1977 when he was 18 and Wally was just nine. The brothers took the music their parents loved and made it their own.

Polka originated from peasant dances in Eastern Europe and grew widely popular in the mid-1800s. When immigrants brought the music with them to the U.S., new regional variations developed as the music took root. Polish polka split into two major styles: Chicago and East Coast. The Polka Country Musicians play a version of the Chicago style called “push.” Push polka bands typically feature double horns, accordion, concertina, bass, and drums. Over the years, and as players changed, the band developed its own distinct sound and adopted a slightly slower tempo suited for covers of country songs. When the band is playing in top form, audiences can be so captivated by the music they stop dancing to fully listen. “Connection with the people is huge,” Dombrowski explains, “it makes us want to perform that much better.”
