Heart 'n Soul Band
2014 Group Champion
In 2009, a group of local musicians who had each performed in various bands throughout the 50’s and 60’s, came together and formed Heart ‘n Soul Band. Band members themselves receive no remunerations for their time and talent and donate all of their net proceeds, after minimal expenses, to charities the band chooses to honor. The band’s motto of “having fun while giving back,” exemplifies their commitment to using one’s time and talents to enhance the lives of the Midlands community members. Over the last six years, the band has donated over $122,000 directly to charities in the Midlands. In addition, the band frequently plays at events for charities and has helped raise funds exceeding $2,000,000.00 for their various causes.
