L-R: Steve Hill, Ryan Kennedy, Steve Payne, Ammed Solomon, Tim Coll
The Soul Doctors are a 5-piece rockin’ rhythm and blues band composed of Ammed Solomon on drums, Steve Hill on bass, Tim Coll and Ryan “Bean” Kennedy on guitars and Steve Payne singing lead vocals. The band was originally formed in 2000 and played regionally for events large and small including several appearances at Live on The Levee. Ryan Kennedy has replaced Doug Payne, one of the original members who moved to Winston-Salem, and who still performs with the band when possible. Steve, Ammed and Ryan are all members of The Mountain Stage Band. Tim Coll has been playing music his entire life and Steve Payne has performed with a number of bands over the last 30 years. The mantra of The Soul Doctors is for everyone to have a great time and leave happy, or as Mountain Stage host Larry Groce says, “the party starts when The Soul Doctors are in the house!”
The Soul Doctors are available to play your corporate, wedding and private party events. We can customize our performance based on your specific needs, so don't hesitate to ask for special treatment. We are willing to go anywhere and are used to playing regionally around the tri-state area. We pride ourselves on not being a cookie cutter party band, but on playing all the favorites plus adding a few surprises on every gig. Our song list covers a lot of ground from Van Morrison to James Brown, The Doobie Brothers, Tom Petty, and of course the Motown classics!
