The Soulistics present energetic, unsurpassed performances featuring music ranging from today's top 40 to Classic Soul and Disco. From Bruno Mars to Michel Jackson. From Daft Punk to James Brown. From Pharrell Williams to Aretha Franklin. From Cee Lo Green to Justin Timberlake. Plus, Earth, Wind & Fire, Tina Turner, Sly Stone, Tower of Power, Adele, Motown, And the list goes on!!! With dynamic male and female lead vocalists, a mighty horn section and a powerhouse of a rhythm section, The Soulistics bring talent, style and charisma that keeps the audience on its feet from the first note of the opening song to the final encore.

The mission, unchanged...Excite, Entertain and always be FUNKY!!CATEGORY: Live Music
In January 2016, armed protestors in Oregon occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to call attention to what they felt was an intrusion by the federal government into their right to make a living. In a larger sense, the “patriot community” introduced itself as disgruntled American citizens with grounds for airing their grievances against a federal government that didn’t have their best interests at heart. The federal government begged to differ.
David Byars’ No Man’s Land offers a detailed account of the impasse, displaying unprecedented access to the protagonists of this incident, and culminating in a thrilling climax that resulted in the arrest and acquittal of occupation leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and left another man dead. The film presents an unbiased snapshot of a crisis that ultimately proved a foreshadowing of our current political climate, and what may turn out to be a blueprint of future domestic encounters between our government and civilians.
