Soul Purpose  ... is a Band performing Motown/R&B, Blues, and Swing/Jump, Big Band music.

Named 2017 Best Local Band in the Hudson Valley by readers of Hudson Valley Magazine, Soul Purpose is a seven-piece band fueled by a shared love of Motown, Soul, Swing, Funk, Jazz and New Orleans Funk music. Based in New York’s Hudson Valley, Soul Purpose has been entertaining fans with their “soulful sounds, brazen horn section and warm vocals”, (Kingston After Dark).

Throughout their nearly twenty-year history, the band has played at numerous venues from intimate concerts, larger festival stages and benefits. Soul Purpose has headlined at the famed Daryl's House Club, Pawling, NY, iconic Towne Crier Cafe, Beacon, NY, historic Colony, Woodstock, NY and renowned Falcon, Marlboro, NY. The band has opened for such prominent artists as Grammy Award Nominee and Blues Music Award Nominee, Shemekia Copeland; Grammy Award Nominee Singer/Songwriter Blues album, Slam Allen and the Chris O’Leary Band.

Members of Soul Purpose include Sara Espinosa, lead vocals; Dr. Lori Morris, alto and tenor saxophone, percussion and background vocals; Rich De Crosta, trumpet, flugelhorn, percussion and background vocals; Cue Gerhards, guitar and vocals; Francis Ralston, bass and background vocals; Steve Turowski, drums and Dr. James Prosser, keyboards and background vocals.

Described by the Huguenot Herald as “a smokin’ band whose joyous renditions of R&B, Soul and Swing will lift your heart, gathering the boisterous energy of a dancing crowd and channeling it into a melodic explosion”, Soul Purpose delivers a visceral rhythm and soul sound to an ever-growing fan base.
