Every year, during the months of January thru March the Souled Out Band proudly presents their "African-American Contributions to American Music" presentation and concert. Available to Middle and High Schools throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region, this roughly hour-long multimedia presentation takes a decade by decade look at African-American heritage, music, cultural progression, and socioeconomic milestones throughout American history.

Souled Out absolutely loves sharing this presentation and concert with schools, as well as the rare opportunity to educated and entertain today's youth! We typically perform the entire show 3-4 times on the same day, so that you can bring in each grade separately, during different blocks....but we're willing to work with you to accommodate your class/block schedule.
