Band Details

SOULSTICE SANTA FE is an outstanding, professional dance band comprised of accomplished musicians and vocalists who play a wide range of music. No other band in New Mexico covers  a wider range than Soulstice: Cole Porter to Jason Mraz, Bob Dylan to Lady Gaga, Beatles to Beyonce, Motown to George Strait. Most bands play one style of music - the problem with that is that audiences like all kinds of music, especially across generations, so to really create a great party Soulstice plays those key iconic favorites. 

SOULSTICE has a basic 8 piece line up of 3 singers male and female - Vicky Speer and Anne Bransford, and Chris Speer, keys - Dan Lizdas, guitar- Dimi DeSanti, bass - Dave Moir, drums - Chris Speer, sax-Lee Taylor and trumpet- Chief Sanchez.

                                                                                                               These musicians combine an enormous amount of professional experience, playing and touring from London to LA to Las Vegas and New York and beyond. The versatile band can become smaller and has done sophisticated jazz gigs, or augmented as the function and playlist requires for bigger events and venues, adding additional singers.

SOULSTICE is one of those rare bands that can track with each event and change gears to keep audiences happy. They play lush background music that guests can converse over with ease, as well as rocking dance music to keep the dance floor packed.

Each event has a customized play list - see our Play List page that includes over 450 songs in the genres of: Jazz Standards; Contemporary Pop; Singer Songwriter; R & B, Rock, Funk & Disco; Pop; 80's, Current Dance; Latin; Country; Swing.

Founding members are Lead Vocalist / Emcee Vicky Speer and Chris Speer on Drums and lead vocals. Vicky has been singing professionally since she was a child. She sang with bands on the Sunset strip and in San Francisco. Her additional experience in drama and musical theater and as a very successful executive in the corporate world melded to produce an emcee without equal in New Mexico.                                                                                                      

Vicky customizes the event timeline with brides and grooms resulting in a smoothly unfolding celebration.                                                                  

Our musicians bring a tremendous wealth of talent, education and gig and touring experience, from London to LA to Las Vegas, plus the groove and ease of playing together. They are all comfortable playing many different styles of music - something that only very accomplished musicians can do well.

Although Soulstice plays for a lot of weddings - this is an anti- "Wedding Singer" (The Movie) band ! Read the prominent musicians who enjoyed the band's musicianship on the News page.

Plus: Chris and Vicky are also DJs who road-test all the dance music that is brought into the band's repertoire, and  will create custom break and after-party continuous CD mixes, so guests enjoy the best of live energy and and DJ music.

These are some of the reasons that Soulstice is continually recommended and also why Soulstice is asked to perform at the major local Gala fundraisers in Santa Fe year after year.

The locals know - there is only one SOULSTICE !
