I used to hang out at Dexter's (558 W New England Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789) to hear the musicians who would perform there. It was a good way to unwind at the end of the week. Soul Function kept the energy up all night. The male lead singer was joined by two gorgeous female singers and they worked the harmonies. Before long couples got up to dance.
Soul Funktion is a diverse commercial dance band based in Orlando, FL. Fred Badalli, the band leader, has been a professional drummer for over 30 years. Throughout his career, he has played in the orchestras of 18 different cruise ships and played numerous musical styles including: Rock, Funk, Soul, Jazz, Blues, Country and Broadway.
The band performed a fun and energetic set primarily of covers. The primary colored stage lights divided up the band members into blue and red groupings. Several female singers joined front man Travis in delivering the vocals. it was a fun night, with the music adding life to the lines and values. I am slowly learning to let go.
