Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

From The Voice to AtwoodFest

“If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer.” This magical quote is part of a bio on the official website for Josh Hoyer and his band Soul Colossal. It puts quite a picture in your head. But, it all make sense, when you listen to the music and learn about the goal behind it, Josh just wants you to dance.

Josh is an old soul, and you can hear it in his songs. His blues-rich vocals could be compared to some of the artists his group has opened for recently, including Booker T Jones, and George Clinton. But, Josh didn’t plan on putting together a long-haul touring band when this all started a half-dozen years ago. In fact, he claims, the music was meant to be something cool to do on the weekends in Nebraska, where he is from. “It was all for fun,” Josh says. “People enjoyed the songs and the band, and it grew naturally from there. I really didn’t expect to ever be touring the country, or the world. I just wanted to find five or six music-minded cities within 1,000 miles of Lincoln, and build those areas up with repeat performances.” Yet now, an average 150 shows across 32 states, and a second tour of Europe starting at the end of this summer, is now considered a typical year for Josh and Soul Colossal.

Music Fights Back

Post Show Follow-Up

June 2018

This past weekend, I had the experience to be at an amazing benefit, “Music Fights Back”.  It was not only the bands rocking a stage, but the overall energy that was almost tangible here. From the moment we walked up to the security area and mentioned why we were there, we were treated like family. Not because we were there to do an interview, and take photos.

An interview with Singer/Songwriter Derek Ramnarace from Old Soul Society
by Mike Huberty
June 2018

Blending sincere Folk with energetic Americana, singer-songwriter Derek Ramnarace and OLD SOUL SOCIETY can easily remind you of COUNTING CROWS one minute and THE BAND the next. Flanked by Ben Rohde on drums, Andrew Steeno on bass, Mark Davini on keys, Joe Gantzer on guitar, and WHEELHOUSE’s badass Kenny Leiser on violin and guitar, Ramnarace has assembled a killer lineup for his Baraboo-based band. Derek has been putting together the Ragged Roots festival in Wisconsin Dells for years and he took the Between The Waves festival lead duties after the tragic passing of his friend, Luke Jourgensen. OLD SOUL SOCIETY will be performing at the Between The Waves music festival on June 16th at the High Noon Saloon outdoor stage at 6pm, and BTW founder Roy Elkins has even lauded them as “Gregg Allman playing with Eric Clapton”! We talked with Derek about the band and his involvement with the festival to preview the show and the big event.

Between The Waves 2018

by Teri Barr
June 2018

It started as a dream, and one I recall talking with Roy Elkins about over a sandwich at the Avenue Bar on East Washington Avenue in Madison a few years ago. Roy wanted to highlight the music scene in this area, and decided a weekend gathering of industry experts from across the world, along with showcases featuring the multitude of talent in and around the city, could be good for everyone involved.

Quickly jump forward to June 2018, and the planning for the 2nd Annual Between the Waves Madison Music Conference and Festival is all but complete.
