Thanks for the feedback on the dreads.
As far as the music, the soul band, were playing because we love the tunes we have chosen, and we love the energy and reaction we get from the crowd. We dont do just weddings, we have been playing bars, restaurants, makeshift house parties, birthday parties (at bars) and other things of the sort. We play in the soul band to provide entertainment for other people who really love the music and request for us to play for that reason. It also doesnt hurt that we are able to book gigs that pay upwards of $3000-$4000.
And as far as original music, Im in two other bands with completely original music that I absolutely love! One of which, we generally do dress nicesly, but occasiaonlly dress silly, or wear things like Jedi robes just for fun, because the music is very fun - kind of a Mr. Bungle (Mike Patton) kind of feel.
The third band, we just wear whatever we want.
