A 10-piece band with a booty-moving horn section and no fewer than four fronting vocalists, SoundConnection delivers an irresistible dance party set to the Top 40 R&B hits of today, as well as the most infectious jams from the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, and aughts. Renowned for its ability to enliven celebrations and weddings, the band has been covered by such press as Washingtonian and Town & Country, and performed at Brides' Disney Dream Wedding, where it melted hearts with Celine Dion's “Prayer” while a murmuration of starlings finished dressing the bride. One glance at the band's repertoire shows that the adaptable arrangement lends itself as easily to The Isley Brothers as to Outkast, and might segue from LMFAO's “Party Rock Anthem” to AC/DC's “You Shook Me All Night Long.” With genre-spanning songs such as “I Want You Back,” “Poker Face,” and “Play That Funky Music,” SoundConnection establishes a common denominator on the dance floor.
Famously affiliated with the historic San Francisco venue, The Fillmore Silver Spring continues founder Bill Graham's passion for hosting dynamic performances. Audiences savor melodies as sound coasts through the chandeliered auditorium, which sports a capacity of 2,000 and the refreshing new-club smell.
