On the Air
A base of indie mixed with chunks of alternative rock, blended to perfection and topped with randomness is the recipe for WAUG's mix. Tune in for everything from Weezer to Kaki King, Coheed & Cambria to Del the Funky Homosapien. If it's good, we play it on WAUG.
Friday April 17th WAUG had the pleasure of recoding a live show of the band Soul Beautiful performing at local Rock Island venue Rozz-Tox. Soul Beautiful come out of Minneapolis and is currently on tour to raise awareness, collect toiletries, and other hygienic products for underprivileged youths. This is a program called "Towels & Toiletries" which helps youth who are experiencing homelessness in the community. The band consists of six members including a trumpet and saxophone player.
As for the band’s sound, their Facebook bio elegantly explains the band’s music and message. “Soul Beautiful is an indie neo-soul band that represents awareness. Our songs reflect peace, intention, positive vibrations, presence, victory over the struggles of everyday life and balance. We are expanding boundaries, we are bringing concepts and illustrating experiences, we represent our village, our ancestors and our loved ones who are no longer here in the physical. Our goal is to create a timeless sound that will project light into one’s life.”
Please check out the live recording from Rozz-Tox of Soul Beautiful with local openers The Blacklights.
