If you like greasy horns and Motown-influenced melodies, Caldonia (pronounced Cal-dōn-yuh) has got something signed, sealed, delivered just for you.
This six-piece band was born in small town Alabama, where revival tents and liquor stores both testify their own truths about the deep south. While saxophone and trumpet stand out on the newest bluesy “rock and soul” release Taxi, the group offers a fresh outlook on vintage music with powerful vocals layered over soulful, driving rhythms sure to get you shakin' and movin' lickety split.

Caldonia's debut EP "...is Hurtin' for You"(2019) paints a hot and humid picture where dance-able rhythms combine with polished vocals, invoking pure soul. Just like the works of Aretha Franklin, Clarence Carter, Etta James, and Wilson Pickett, Caldonia recorded their gritty debut effort at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. This soulful pedigree influenced the release in a retro, raw, and reverb-soaked vibe that only a historic studio could offer.
Live shows: While classic soul covers are a staple of the band’s charismatic live show, Caldonia’s original material stands out for audiences familiar with today's throwback acts, such as The Black Keys, Vintage Trouble, The Alabama Shakes, or St. Paul & The Broken Bones.
"They mix old sounds with new energy, and offer a modern outlook for throwback soul and vintage rock music lovers."
