Grand Avenue Soul

Grand Avenue Soul was started in 2013 by drummer Mike Bond. Originally meant to be a side project to blow off some steam and play a few Soul covers, the group’s first shows were so well received that the band quickly became a main focus. Now years later the group has become an in demand live act all over the Bay Area. Featuring a talented group of musicians the band prides itself on being able to perform at a variety of venues from large outdoor festivals to small quaint taverns. The core of the band is made up of Andrew Balmat (guitar/vocals), Emily Zisman (vocals), Chris Baker (lead guitar) and Mike Bond (drums).  Additionally group is also regularly joined by a variety of special guests including Bay Area Blues Legend Tia Carroll!  So, grab your dancing shoes and come out to a show!
