SOUL BUSH DUO
SOUL BUSH DUO features:
Ross Brown - Guitar, Vocals, Congas, Percussion and Loops
Mustafa Akbar - Vocals, Percussion
The SOUL BUSH DUO is basically a lite form of the band SOUL BUSH. The duo performs similar repertoire of Funk, Soul, R&B, Reggae and Rock, covers and originals. Compared to the full band, the vibe is toned down and more appropriate for a small venue or restaurant setting.
Ross Brown provides the rhythmic structure utilizing live-looping techniques to layer sounds of guitar, bass, beats, congas, and percussion, establishing a groovy foundation. The two sing together in beautiful harmony sharing the load of lead and backing vocals. Ross’s lead guitar fills in between with melodic passages and improvisation.
Mustafa Akbar is a seasoned soulful vocalist with silky smooth vocal style reminiscent of Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield. He is an accomplished recording artist with two albums released under his own name and many other releases as a featured vocalist on tracks by various EDM producers including “Fort Knox Five”, “Thunderball”, “Afrika Bambata” and many more….
SOUL BUSH DUO performs regularly around Key West. You can catch them on Friday evenings at Viva Saloon for the “Funky Friday Happy Hour”, Thursday mornings at Blue Heaven, some evenings at Schooner Wharf, and afternoons at Ocean Key Sunset Pier.
