Real soul music never dies. That’s what the insatiable musicians of the Dutch band The Soul Snatchers prove every time they treat a swinging crowd to their timeless, down to earth funk and soul tunes, that find their roots in the sexy Sixties and Seventies of the 20th century.
Taking pure Soul Music right across the bridge into the new century, The Soul Snatchers combine unknown classics and original compositions into a show that not only appeals to connoisseurs, but just as well to bigger, more mainstream-oriented audiences. The Soul Snatchers don’t claim to have invented Soul Music. Neither do they pretend to re-invent it. They … just HAVE it! And they LOVE to share it with Funk-Soul lovers in every corner of the globe.

Founded rock solid on the well oiled rhythm section of clean drums and thumping bass, the dangerously growling Hammond organ and the reverbing guitar sounds find their way to your soul blindly. Add to that the threeheaded copper section The Dynamite Horns, the tormented throat of female singer YoYo and the charismatic performances of singer Curtis T. and special guest vocalist Jimi Bell Martin … and all ingredients for a real Soul Party are present.

In the Fall of 2006 The Soul Snatchers’ first 7″ vinyl record on the Social Beats label, “Sniffin’ & Snatchin'”, was released. It immediately caught the attention of deejays like Keb Darge, Henry Storch, Andy Smith, Kenny Dope, Soul Rabbi and Paul Weller. And of quite a lot of record buyers: it didn’t take long before the record had to be re-pressed! In 2006, The Soul Snatchers also appeared on compilation albums such as “Soul Shakers Vol. 3” (Recordkicks), “Stay On The Groove Vol. 2” (Freestyle Records) and “New Testament Of Funk Vol. 5” (Unique Records).

In September 2007 the second 7″ record, with Dutch Soul singer Jimi Bell Martin, was released. In the early 70’s, with funky songs like “So Fine” and “Moviestar”, Jimi stormed the charts and even held the #1 position in Latin America for weeks. During the past decades, he toured with people like Eric Burdon, Percy Sledge and Lou Rawls.

In February 2008 The Soul Snatchers’ first full album will be released with mainly original compositions, named “Sniffin’ & Snatchin'”. The 12 short’n’spicy soul tracks with the Sixties Sound all over them result in an album with a good old LP-length. So … no wonder “Sniffin’ & Snatchin'” is available on nice crispy black vinyl!
