Live at La Fonda
From Motown classics and Tower of Power to today’s R&B hits, Soulstatic features Tony Buford on lead vocals and one of the best bass players around, Donny Tesso. Completing the band’s heavy rhythm sound are Murali Levine on guitar, Mark Clark on drums, Brant Leeper on keyboards, and Jose Romero pitching in on bass.
Formed in 2009, the band has been playing the Santa Fe club circuit for years and just recently started appearing at La Fiesta Lounge on weekends. Buford says people are surprised to catch a funk band right here in Santa Fe. “We are a dance band,” he says, “but sometimes it’s such an exciting performance, a lot of people sit and applaud. Either way, they’re enjoying themselves.”
