The Paciﬁc Soul Band offers a unique blend of musicality covering music from R&B, Oldschool, Funk, Hip-Hop, Soft Rock, and Top 40 dance tunes from the past and present. Family runs deep within the music of the Paciﬁc Soul Band. A long generation of rooted ties to the neighborhoods of North Milpitas and East San Jose inﬂuences their musicality. A majority of the band are related and have been playing music together for several years.
Paciﬁc Soul Band was formed by the band's uncle, guitarist/vocalist Alberto Perez from the latin recording group Trio Intimo. Alberto’s inﬂuence and drive was the main pillar to helping them structure their foundation. The band also credits their uncle Eddie Minniﬁeld, saxophonist for Sheila E, as a big inﬂuence to the boys. Eddie’s mentoring has helped them tremendously on their approach to the music business.
