it. This is the site for the original SOUL TRADERS,
the first, the finest and still the best band ever to use the name. Over the years

authentically reproduce the US Soul
and R'n'B sounds of a classic era - not just emulating but re-vitalising standards by Otis,

puts this band way ahead of all those who’ve jumped onto the
same old Blues Brothers bandwagon.
TRADERS know that putting on a show means more than just
putting on dark glasses
