This month’s headliner Soul Scratch is a hard-hitting groove machine built in the San Fernando Valley, The Valley, The 818. The band was founded based on a mutual love of soul music and a passion for making people move. They recently released their first full-length album Down The Road.

Soul Scratch frequently covers tracks by Charles Bradley and Sam Cooke, and draws inspiration from these legends to create their own “California Soul” sound. acclaims the group as “a fresh take on classic soul, funk and jazz with a sound that is a seamless blend of old and new.”


Soul Scratch is rapidly branching out of their LA base on a quest to bring good times, quality get down, and their own special brand of soul to every corner of the country.

Head over to The Federal Bar tonight for dinner, cocktails and to get down to some old school funk .
