Magnolia Sons


Magnolia Sons (Nashville, Tenn.)

Nashville’s Magnolia Sons describe themselves as “very big retro Soul,” but that’s a bit of an understatement. Gargantuan Power Soul might be a better name. No matter where they are, the roughly 15 members of the band bring a truckload of attitude to every stage, unleashing one glorious and uplifting party upon their fans. Their best track to date is “Baby That’s You,” with its church lady wailing, blaring and funky horns and Jackson 5-style piano pounding. Sources (re: Facebook) say new music is on the way.
