The 678 Tribute Orchestra Biography
The 678 Tribute Orchestra is a world-class 19-piece band made up of 7 vocalists, and backed by a large horn and rhythm section. As an option, the band can also add a 12-piece string section, making it a 31-piece orchestra, giving it an extra touch of class, elegance and sophistication. The 678 Tribute Orchestra performs mega soul hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s, and also includes later hits from the 90s and 2000s, making it attractive to all age groups. The closest description of the orchestra is similar to The Funk Brothers, with a soulful personality, however, The 678 Tribute Orchestra covers many additional middle-of-the-road pop songs which fall under the soul/funk umbrella, allowing the show to reach a much wider audience. The goal of the show is not to do impersonations, but to honor and pay tribute to the spirit of some of the greatest soul songs ever written with new and updated arrangements. In the course of a performance, the orchestra covers over 50 artists, and many additional popular songs that are all mega hits with no fillers. Some of the musical styles covered are: jazz/rock fusion, Motown, soul/funk, swing/boogie, disco, rhythm and blues, classical ballads, pop and 60's rock. This makes The 678 Tribute Orchestra perfect for your show presentation, a show/dance, corporate/company event, wedding event and reception, class reunion event, music festivals, fair and amusement park concert/events, private parties, and your larger night clubs. The show performs locally, nationally, and internationally.
The 678 Tribute Orchestra show is written in show medley form and every song in the show is danceable, giving your audience the option of dancing or staying seated while being thoroughly entertained. The orchestra is made up of some of the most talented singers and musicians in the Northern California area with some seasoned players and young professionals, giving you a high quality and star performance on every level.
The 678 Tribute Orchestra is dedicated to performing music and songs that are uplifting, positive, and that have a unifying affect with audiences while maintaining a hip edge. Another goal of the orchestra, is to promote live music played by real singers and musicians and help to expose that to the younger generation and potential younger musicians, which is becoming more and more scarce in our entertainment scene and social fabric. The orchestra also takes pride in being able to expose string music in a popular music format, which audiences normally only get to enjoy in symphonic settings.
