Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric and is best displayed in their high-energy live show. “If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer.” Blending Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his rich, intensely soulful vocals with his top-notch band, creates an undeniable chemistry. Hoyer formed Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal in 2012 in Lincoln, Nebraska. The award-winning fivepiece band includes some of the area’s most revered and accomplished musicians. Inspired by the sounds of Stax, Motown, Muscle Shoals, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the band continuously crosses musical boundaries both in style and era, and joins forces each show with a common goal – to have the crowd dancing so much they forget even their smallest troubles. In 2017, Josh was featured as a contestant on NBC’s The Voice, and the band completed their first European tour; a 27-city stint capped with a live album release from their show in Brussels, Belgium. The hard working band completed several national tours from 2015-2017, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states annually, including several major summer music festivals.
