Those that have followed the band will know that Souled As Seen Soul Band, based in their home town of Southampton, has been around in many guises since their start in late 1984 with the latest line-up probably their strongest yet.
After all this time you would expect that some of the sparkle would have gone, not a bit. They still have the same distinctive sound which ensures that they get the maximum involvement from their audience. Over the years they naturally have built a loyal following and it is this support that has kept the band not only on the road but still as soulful as when they started.
During their time together there have been a number of highlights which includes support to some of the top soul artists like Jimmy Ruffin, Edwin Starr, Curtis Mayfield, Geno Washington, Ben E King, and Gloria Gaynor.

HENRY WRIGHT - DRUMS. Henry is one of the founder members of the band. His drum kit has been recently radio carbon dated and found to be made of wood from King Arthur's round table, which probably accounts for its unique tone. Keith Moon liked it anyway!
MALC EYERS - LEAD VOCAL. Souled As Seen's unique sound is in no small part down to Malc's distinctive voice. As an original member he has been forced to sing Mustang Sally 2,647 times which must qualify him for an entry into the Guinness Book of Records. The pinnacle of Malcolm's musical career occurred when the band entertained the returning crews from the BT Global Challenge. The following week a letter was printed in the Southampton press complaining that the singer sounded like a chainsaw. A further marvel about Malcolm is how he manages to keep his shoes so clean......Solly thinks he uses KY jelly!
SOLLY READ - BASS, VOCALS. The legendary Solly Read is noted for his remarkable memory. How he manages to forget which key Too Hard to Handle is played in, along with practically every other song that we do, is a constant source of wonderment to the rest of the band. Solly usually occupies the inside right position in the line-up; Keith is hoping that one day he may be able to see over Solly's shoulder and find out what an audience looks like.
KEITH - LEAD GUITAR. Keith is without doubt the best lead guitarist in Souled As Seen. His ability to break strings on gigs is also worthy of mention. However, his biggest claim to fame is the fact that he is the only person in the world who is shorter than Malcolm.
GRAHAM HOLT - HAMMOND ORGAN, FENDER RHODES, PIANO. Graham wishes it to be known that he is Doctor Love. Due to the fact that he insists on wanting a hand to move his Leslie speaker, he will invariably be found on his own at the end of a gig.
MARK WILKINSON - SAXOPHONES, VOCALS. Mark is the revered leader of the great Souled As Seen horn section. Being chief horn is no easy thing as he has many varied tasks, the most important of which is to ask at every gig what the first two notes of Respect are. His other great talent is his singing, the only problem being that we can't find a piece of music that's outside his vocal range.
IAN LUXFORD - TROMBONE/VALVE TROMBONE. Ian is the junior member of the horn section, the grey hair is in fact dyed to give the impression of an ageing rocker. Being the low end of the section brings with it the honour of doing the brass arrangements, although it probably has more to do with the fact that he is the only person in the band with a computer that prints music. His greatest moment came when half of his trombone went flying across the floor in the middle of a gig. A preliminary doctor's report shows that this was probably due to an allergic reaction caused by insufficient alcohol intake during the gig!
JEZ JONES - TRUMPET. Jeremy Jimmy James Jones plays the trumpet, which is handy as he's the trumpet player in Souled As Seen. Jez is notorious for not playing any wrong notes, in fact we are still waiting after over four years. Jez doesn't have a real job; he runs a wine bar in Chandlers Ford which is always heaving and has become a good watering hole for the band on the rare occasions that we rehearse.

The band has been as busy as ever gigging and producing their second album which includes favourite soul classics from their set. If you haven't seen or heard Souled As Seen yet then give yourself a treat!
