Robert T recorded, wrote and co-wrote many songs for many bands & groups in the past, such as “Harrowing Man” with Conga Jihad Band, “I Like Them All” for

The Howard St. Blues Band, and a song from the 911 attack on America, “Who Will Rule Iraq” followed by a campaigne song for President Barrack Obama, titled “Obama’s Got The Power” (Oama Is The Best), which sold well from the trunk of his car, and can be heard on YouTube.

As AMERICA’S NO. 1 JAMES BROWN TRIBUTE SHOW & REVUE, Robert T… The Real Soul Pleaser & his band, Papa’s New Bag, featuring his top notch horn section, The PNB Horns, are now sharing the stage with many R&B legends, such as Gene Chandler, Kim Weston, Russell Thompkins of The Stylistics, Chubby Checker, and many more…

Jun 3 @ 7:30 pm

Hard-driving blues rhythms and soul grooves fuel the blistering performance of DC-based soul blues band Vintage#18. After attending a performance, John Porter, NPR declares, “Vintage#18 is a band you have to see live in order to appreciate their level of performance.” According to The Alternate Root, “Robbin Kapsalis delivers vocals that slink through a smoky haze of Soul”.

Performing together since 2013, the band sharpened their sound and performance chops in clubs throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. They soon found themselves sharing stages with The Nighthawks, Billy Price, Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials, Albert Cummings, Selwyn Birchwood, Coco Montoya, and Roomful of Blues. The album features the unique sound of Bill Holter on guitar (a.k.a. #18), while the groove is laid down by Alex Kuldell on drums and Mark Chandler on bass. Soulful vocals are delivered by newcomer and bandleader Robbin Kapsalis.

Blues In the South hit it on the head…” Although this outfit is undoubtedly a blues band, they have a distinctively individual sound.”

She has performed on stage with legends such as Little Feat and George Clinton, not to mention hundreds of other talented bands and artists from coast to coast.
