Hey guys Great to see and hear you again! Booked the trip from FL to OR the 26th of april thru the 30th. Just to get two days in a row of Soulvax. Back home now, wishing I could go to just one of the future dates on your calender! Who knows - The Bite of Oregon is around the corner! (Did that one once before with you, had a blast!) Until the next one, your fan and friend, Mike
You guys are great! Cant wait to dance to you again!
Loved you guys today in Reedsport. I see your calendar of events on your site here but how can we find you in Portland when you're at your normal location? I don't see that anywhere, just a date in March. Looking forward to seeing you again!! Great stuff!!
Any plans to come to L.A. in the near future? Would love to see you in person.
Got in under the wire for your Incomparable show JMaks! Celebrate Good Times! Com'on!
We love all of you. You are all so talented, yet so much better as you feed on each others talent. Wow. What a blessing you are to your audience. Truly a blessing. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us. FYI Kristina and I were at your last two Jimmy Mak's events. I'm the 6'3" dude with the grey goatee, and she's got all the natural dark curly hair. We love taking in your soul, funk, and vibe. You make the night simply melt away in pure bliss. Thank you, each of you, for what you are doing and who you are!
Loved Jamaican Funk!
Thoroughly impressed! Chaka Kahn, Stevie Wonder, and much more! I was hoping for some Earth Wind and Fire considering your horn section, and I was NOT disappointed! I caught myself mesmerized by the vocals several times. Can't wait to see you again :)
Max, I was in Eugene last weekend when you played for the Ducks halftime show. I came up with my son and we spoke to Edwin but had not idea I was that close to you and didn't put it together. How the heck are you buddy. I just found out from Mike K that you were in the band, only got to hear a couple of songs but it sounded great, like old times. Take Care
just listend to your music for the first time, boy do you guys JAM!!!!!!!! I live in Las Vegas, If you ever come this was I'd like to see Your Band
Coming to Stevenson,Wa on the 24th for my birthday, could have gone to see ZZ top. I enjoyed the band in Potland and would like to hear you again
Heard you guys at the Bite of Oregon. Have not heard you since the old days of Baccus in Vancouver. Was great to see you still "BRING IT". I new what to expect from the Horn section but when you get true muscians who have been to school and know their "AXE" you get what you guys have. As good a horn section as you hear on commercial radio. Short of being "Tower" themselves your horns are a show by themselves. Add a rythmn section that grooves as fine as any who have seen great fame and fortune and you have the finest instrumental band around. However, I have to say that I was "kinda knocked outa my socks" with your "White Stevie Wonder". As the set continued, you guys got better and better. This is what the best of the best do in any organization of any kind. It was as fun a time as I have had listening to a band in quite some time. My wife loved it and it was a great Birthday present. I hope to see you guys in the clubs in the coming months. Hearing you in a small venue again will be Outrageous. Thanks for such energy and passion on the stage. I envy you guys being able to entertain a crowd like that and have that much personal fun. Please keep this band going for generations to come. It is a musical jewel that simply can't go away when people can't play or sing anymore. Soul Vaccination is now a "legacy" of professionalism, musicianship, and pure fun your kids deserve to hear when they get older. Continue to love the music, and NEVER EVER EVER ALLOW YOUR INCREDIBLE MUSCIANSHIP TO BE COMPROMISED. You play at such a high level that most bands cannot comprehend how good you are individually and as "one". Thanks for playing Earth, Wind and Fire the way it should be played. And Stevie Wonder would be proud of how good you guys are.
Enjoyed the heck outa the Monmouth show. small town, small crowd great band. The roots run deep, nice night,gang I bought the triple pack to share.
Sounding great as always, hope to get to Applewood!
I love your music. soon as I get time I will come and injoy watchin you all.
cant wait to see you guys again. great show!
thanx for all the good dance music bands like u keep me jump jiveing and keep it funky ,and maybe i will bring my trunk monky to one of your shows.
Looking forward to seeing you in August. I live in So. CA/LA area, but raised in Portland. Will be in the area in August for my 40th Reunion. And so want to see you. You all are great and I Love your Music and bios.
Great show last night! I posted two videos from last night on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMp93zATcFA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpsUjunMqnw Have a look and if you want me to take them down for any reason, let me know and I'll remove them.
great show this weekend at Music Milennium! We love the new CD!
Tell Max Rees Hello from a former MHCC Student!
Just saw you for the first time at the Candelight. I feel like a fool it took me this long to find one of the best blues in PDX.
We were guests at Bob and Vanessa's party last night at the Chart House, and want to Thank You for making the evening so exceptional with your music. Jim and I both met You, GiGi and really enjoyed having a chance to visit with You, and share a little with each other. Thank you for lending me your bracelets to wear. Be well, with love at Christmas time. Lori and Jim
I met Mark at the Keb Mo concert this weekend. Great talking to you, looking forward to hearing Soul Vaccination live soon!
love you guys
Can't wait to see you guys all together very soon. Funk and soul were among the many genre's of music I was raised listening to. And, Louis, Edwin Hawkins' 'Oh, Happy Day?'. That's one of my all time favorites.
- I grew up in the Bay and have loved horn driven funk for years, TOP, Cold Blood etc..and when I moved north to the "Couve" I thought I left my favorite music behind - stumbled across you at the Clackamas Town Center last night and loved your show - you are some really talented musicians - keep up the good work -
yo!! Kerry soundin good !
I love seeing you guys play!
My son caught your show at Jimmy Mak's last night (5/14/11) and loved it! He was trying to tell me about all the great stuff you did but couldn't remember everything. Could you publish a set list? If anyone else who saw the show remembers the numbers from early in the evening my son and I would appreciate you filling us in. Thanks!!
Grat music! i love it!
I think your music is amazing! I love the Tower of Power you do, would love to see u do more of them only because u have the horns and the capability to do them so much justice. Your still a young man would be awesome by u, also Soul Vaccination which would be a good opener for you as u r the ones! You do Tower of Power well the singer is awesome in your group! Like listening to them live! Average white band is another good one along with Bloodstone if u remem. them, Natural High! Anyway very much enjoy listening to u all!
Just read Jim Mauldin's post. I lived at the same base in Anchorage as a kid; my dad was career Air Force. We were stationed there during the big earthquake. I can't wait to hear the band tonight. It will be my first time. Living in the dorms at OSU in 1975, listening to Earth Wind and Fire, Tower of Power, Teddy Pendergrass, etc., loved it!!
I saw them for 1st time at at Mt Tabor theater. I have seen Tower of Power every time they came to Portland back in the day. also Earth wind and fire along with Average White band and other soul concerts, and I have to say it was like Watching Tower of Power Live! This is a great group one of the best I have ever seen in Portland! Totally enjoyed show along with 6 other friends any my daughter who just turned 21 in Dec. She had a great time and thought you were great. Knew the songs from James Brown to Chaaka Kahn. Truly enjoyed it. Will be seeing you again!
I had a blast dancing all night to your great music, last Friday at the Alberta Rose Theater. Whew!
Where are you at New Years Eve?
Really enjoyed SV at Charlies last Saturday night. What a great evening. I love the music and the bands' stage presence.
I was stationed at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska with Mark Wyatt from 80-82. We jammed a little back then. He was a great talent then and still is. Your TOP covers are great.
Love you guys!
Last night you were amazing...Love you guys!!!!! Diana
HI everyone. I am the big tall Greek gal that danced the night away with you tonight. My guys are asleep and I am wide awake. He ! He ! :0) My family came to see you March 19 at Jimmy Max. I was mortified when my 8 year old son and his 8 year old friend were bored to death during your performance. ( we sat behind the speakers to the left of the stage)I want you ALL to know I saw you first with my sons Greek teacher I think in April. You said then to bring your children on March 19th so I did. BOTH times I was not able to dance because of the dance floor at Jimmy Max. I came tonight and for the first time I was able to really enjoy the night. MOSTLY because you were in Vancouver NOT at that small little want a be dance floor at Jimmy Max. I can't thank you ALL for doing what you do. You got this stay at home almost 48 year old mom out of the house and let me release some amazing energy. I have your CD which I bought the first night AND I AM WAITING FOR YOUR NEXT TO COME OUT ????? Soon right !!!!!!!! You all are my theraphy. I dance to you at home because I am trying to avoid surgery so PLEASE keep on jammin. I have never heard this music before untill I met Soul Vaccination. OMG!!! Have I just became your groupie. I will try and get my husband out next time if we can find a trust worthy babysitter. I just want to say; your music rocks and it makes my body move. Thank you for that. Thak you so much. Your band is helping me stay away from a really icky surgery. Thanks. Tarin
Love the sound
nothing like the ol' school funk
Edwin, Hi, Jim Williams the photog at your show on Friday. Great show! Thanks for the opportunity to shoot you guys. I wish the lighting had been better as the singers were in the dark much of the night. We just arrived back home in Sisters this afternoon and I will go through the shots and send them off to you guys. Thanks again, hope to see you in our area soon! Jim

I saw you guys for the first time last saturday nite at Blackstone. I loved it! You guys are FAB! I will definately come see you again amd tell everyone I know how great you are. I had a fabulous time... well except for the girl that stepped on my foot on the dance floor and broke it!(ok its not broken, just badly bruised!lol)
Can we hear Love TKO from Soul Vax this Sat. night?! Oh yea!
I've seen you at the Candlelight and what impresses me the most is that you sincerely enjoy performing. It is soooo much fun to watch you all play and sing. Thank you, and I wish you only the best of fortunes in the New Year!

Just saw you guys at the Ruby Ranch in Warren and enjoyed it very much. Sorry that we weren't there to enjoy the whole event. Suggestion - maybe a bit more advertisement.

I was fortunate enough to stumble across your performance at Duck Pond Cellars this past Thanksgiving. What a surprise !!! Incredible music!!! As a fan of Stan Kenton since 1949, you can imagine how I reacted to your horn section. You certainly don't need me to tell you how great your are. Just know that I deeply appreciate your sharing your musical talents !! Continued sucess !
I heard you for the first time at the Candlelight and was back for more the next weekend from Salem. Your music is down right funky and full of soul as it should be. A BIG thanks to the band for bringing it. Makes me want to clear my calendar for some fun nights out. Congratulations on your new CD! Christina
I saw your band for the first time last night and was very impressed. I love the music you played. I was also impressed with your band's chemistry. You all seemed to be enjoying yourselves.

Dear Leah, My girlfriend's 12-year old daughter got to see you play last night at Jimmy Mak's. She has expressed an interest in learning bass guitar after seeing Tal Wilkenfeld on the Crossroads DVD. I thus thought it might be inspirational for her to hear someone live, thus I brought her to see you play. She was VERY impressed by your playing, singing, and by the fact that you were having a blast! Thank you for being a positive role model. Leon
Dave, Thanks for being such a gracious host to my girlfriend and her three children at Jimmy Mak's last night. Even though they may not have expressed it to you on their way out, they had a wonderful evening and really enjoyed the music. Thank you ever so much; we hope to see you again soon! Leon
I love all of you..... I wish I could see you more often! Do you ever come to Eugene or Albany?
Dave, My friend, Elizabeth and I were at Persimmon last night for the Holiday party. Soul Vaccination was HOT. Really looking forward to hearing them agai. I have never heard of some of the venues (Smoking at The Coast, The Hood event or others... I NEED to check the band out again. Gigi is a wonderful soloist. Is the gentleman that was singing last night (Mark-I think is his name) a newcomer to the band? Thanks again. Craig Pelzer
The band sounds great! Funk, funk, and mo funk. I love it. Bro, I remember you from the ship. So much was going on I don't remember knowing that you were with Curtis Salgado. I heard that you guys had the tightest band on the ship. That was from my trusted comrades. I hate I missed it. I'm glad to have met you though. I hope that we do get the chance to play together in the future. So take care, and keep groovin'! PEACE!!!............AJ
Edwin. The band looks great. Charlotte and I just want to say hi and hope all is going well.

Hey y'all! Had a BALL on Saturday night... what fun. Thanks for letting me be a part of it! I'll be in Portland on the first weekend of December and will come to the Quay; looking forward to seeing you all again! K
Catch you at the Gemini whenever I can. Always a good time. It is amazing how when you start the music people can't stay away from the dance floor.
You were the stars of the Saturday night shows at the 'Bite'!
Hi there Soul Vax. It was great to see you all again at the Bite of Oregon. Robin you were great as usual! My history with your band goes back a little farther then I had thought. I first saw Soul Vax many moons ago, and then as age or maturity or family crept into "life" my club nights rapidly dwindled. However, A few years have passed and I was re-introduced to your band again at the BBQ & Brew at Lincoln City. Robin and Vicky befriended a friend and I. We shared a table prior to the show - and helped Carl unsticky himself from the ribs! Anyway, it was great to meet you (Robin, Carl, Vicky & Mike), it made the show so much more fun, personal and interesting. As a band you have great presence and do seem to enjoy yourselves. That's really appealing to the audience. Robin - don't forget to hock those CD's and t-shirts at all the places you play, along with the website. Iam always doing what I do best, being in the marketing mode! Keep on Rockin! I really love your sound - especially the horns, they are wonderful. All my best - Roberta
a friend and i saw you guys at the rose festival friday 6/3/05, and thought you were wonderful!!!! we slipped through the fence to talk to you and we successfully made it. so even though we said it then, i'll say it again. you were wonderful. thank you for the great music, hope to see you soon!
WOW!!! Those vocals are incredible Robin. You are so extremely talented. I can't wait to see you perform live.
Robin, I had no idea! The CD you gave Ed blew me away. I was expecting a garage band then heard this wonderfully produced album. WOW! That's all I can say. WOW! Yell over the fence the next time you see me...unless I see you first. :) Phil
Listened to your new song. I must say , MOST AWESOME , Way to go. Brother Bret
I am new to the area and always looking for good soul. I found you guys by accident walking into a new club. Thank you!! Keep me updated on shows.
Hi all of you. Finally joined your email list. Robinnnnnn its me Carol - hope your pearl beads are doing well :-) love ya See you at the Gemini on the 13th and 14th of May.
I absolutely love this band! They have such high energy that you can't help but get on the dance floor and shake your tail feather. If you haven't been fortunate enough to catch them, definitely plan on seeing them in the near future. You won't be disappointed. Hope to see you guys soon!!!

Hey Robin and Soul Vax -- Thanks for making my birthday so much fun at the Gemini last weekend. You're awesome. I'll look forward to seeing you there next month. I love you guys!!! Lori
Hello to you all from New Orleans. I'm playing with "Plan B" at The Old Opera House 601 Bourbon St 5 days a week. Keep on groovin. Much love, Steve
I love big band type formats. It creates a versatility, not available, in smaller bands.
I was as the Candlelight last night (March 19) and so very much enjoyed the whole evening of music. I had seen you play years ago, and I must say, you are 100 times better now. I was sorry when the evening ended. Great job!!!!!
Saw the show at the Gemini Sat. 3/12. You were sooo incredible!!!!! Robin and the whole band sounded just PHENOMENAL!!!!
Tell Bryan to get a new hat, LMAO, that is one funny pose there Bryan! You are the best! Lee
Saw you guys at the Gemini...Some of the tightest horns I've ever heard! I will start looking for you around town!
Friend of mine Eric Lee has told me about you so I am looking forward to hear your band perhaps tonite.
You guys should have cartoons on your web-site. No mistakes. And tell your trumpet-player dude to not jay-walk during Mardi Gras!!!
A friend too me to The Inn at the Quay to hear you all play. Since that evening I have seen you perform several times and have become a fan that tells everyone I know about your group. Great music, great sound, and great energy! Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents! Collette
Where are you playing next?
Saw you at Lefty's in Salem, hope you'll return soon. Killer tunes and musicianship.
Caught you guys for the first time at the Gemini this past Saturday. Your guys are really good. Looking forward to seeing you at the Quay on the 26th.
We're all just wondering why your band is not just HUGE...on the radio, touring, etc...The talent that you have is absolutely amazing! Very, Very classy!
Thank you, once again, for the fantastic music! You just keep getting better and better! I took lots of pictures at the Halloween party and I anxiously await their development. Perhaps we can add them to the website. Thank you all for the joy you bring me. Not only are you all tremendously talented but you are wonderful individuals I am glad to know......I remain your biggest fan!
We came all the way from Colorado Springs to see you, well that may not be the only reason, but you were worth the trip just the same!! You guys rocked last night at Bacchus! We will see you again soon! Dena and Bobby
Great show and music at the Quay.
What a great band!!The lead singer is vabulous.
Awesome...they are the best!
Dave, I am clobbered this weekend....the end of my event season! But I will come out soon!
I really like your website. I will be sure to continue attending your performances.
The best band around
Thank you for your emails on where/when your going to be at. I love you guys and tell everyone about you. Thanks again for the good tunes.
You guys are the BEST funk & dance band! Hope you come up north to Tacoma or Seattle some time! Joanie Leverett
Great pics of the band! :) Fantastic looking group of musicians! Hope to be able to hear you again soon.
So much talent! It's always terrific fun to come out and see you. Thank you for great music and great times!
Dave, Robin, and Mike: Sorry I haven't been down to hear you guys for awhile...I've dedicated the whole summer to kiteboarding and surfing, but plan to come down soon and hear you (Robin, you are one good-lookin' woman!). Great website...super photo of the group! Almost a whole new lineup, eh? Where did Ron and Kevin go? See you soon...Dave, next time I'll buy you a Jack Daniels on the rocks. Leon
It's ALWAYS a good time when Soul Vaccination is playing!!!!
What can I say!
I've missed the funk!!! Hearing you all again, last weekend, was the best! Who waits for a partner to dance with?!?!? I jumped right in and didn't stop until you made me go home. The horns drive me nuts! Thank you all for the great music!!!
Keep me informed of all your gigs throughout the year. I love what you guys are doing!
