Judy02_sm.jpg (3478 bytes)"Sweet Judy" Teo

Born in the soul capitol of the midwest (that’s right – Fond-Du Lac, Wisconsin), Judy hit the road at a young age, touring with a band from her hometown. Settling in Boston, she has brought her sweet soulful voice to such legendary Boston bands as Gypsy, Goodnight Louise, Bijou, and many others. She has performed with international stars such as Maxine Nightingale, and performs regularly at the House of  Blues gospel brunch with the gospel group Rev. Lee Mitchell & Co. She is also regularly called on to back up many of the legends of  doo-wop and rock and roll at major oldies concerts around New England

JB03_sm.jpg (2818 bytes)J. B., Jr. "The Godnephew of Soul"

You might guess that a singer with the stage name "J. B. Jr." would be borrowing heavily from the James Brown songbook. You might be right. A native of Richfield, NC, JB grew up idolizing and emulating his musical hero. Making his home in Boston since the mid-60’s, he has spent a lifetime on and off the road, at various times bringing his act to the stage as an opener for such legends as The Blue Notes, Wilson Pickett, Millie Jackson, Maurice Starr, Sam & Dave, and yes, the "real" James Brown. His energy is infectious, whether doing the Camel Walk across the stage, or splits in the middle of the dance floor; the whole audience will just have to "git up, git on up"!

"Mr. Motion" Ronnie Valentine

A versatile performer with a large repertoire, Ronnie’s high energy personality will win over any crowd within minutes. As a youngster growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, he teamed up with other family members to create the “Black Beatles”, touring local venues and county fairs. Since then, he has performed tributes to many soul artists as well as performing with Tavares, Roomful Of Blues, and many other acts. Once you see him onstage, it will be instantly clear why they call him “Mr. Motion”!

The Boston Soul Revue Band

Our newest member, Reginald Gaylord Grant, has been a dear friend for many years. After the passing of our original saxophonist, former James Brown band member Emmett Simmons, there were some big shoes to fill. Reggie was one of the original Blue Notes, and recorded with Harold Melvin on the hits "Bad Luck" , "If You Don't Know Me By Now" ,"The Love I Lost" and toured with the band for many years.
The Boston Soul Revue rhythm section is composed of veteran Boston musicians including members of Boston Music Award winner, the lateWeepin’ Willie’s All Star Blues Band. Various members of the band have performed with such Boston area R&B favorites as: Toni Lynn Washington, Shirley Lewis, Little Joe Cook, Sweet Roy Jones, Silas Hubbard Jr., Chris Fitz, Jose Ramos, the late "Earring George" Mayweather, as well as international stars including Herb Reed, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, The Chi-Lites, Al Jarreau, Peaches & Herb, Thelma Houston, The Tonight Show Orchestra, and many others.
