There are no upcoming gigs for Flippin SOUL Stompers.
From generations, Manila has heard over a thousand of bands in various genres and styles. Little did people know that most of today's music was formed through the classier tunes of soul music. Envisioned in bringing the masses back to root of modern music, a seven-membered ensemble with veteran musicians from Pu3ska, Tropical Depression, and Juan Pablo Dream; and fresh talents came together and formed the Flippin Soul Stompers. As fans of soul music, the band follows the examples of Otis Redding, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, The Funk Brothers, and Booker T and the MG's – a fine indication that the band fully expresses Motown, Stax, Funk, and Blues. Surely followers of the scene and new listeners will not be disappointed.
Since its establishment in 2011, the band garnered around 3,000 followers (and counting) from their regular gigs at Hyatt Hotel City of Dreams, Sofitel Luxury Hotel, Bar at 1951, Handle Bar and Grill; and music festivals such as Fête de la Musique, Circuit Brew Fest, Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival, Philippine Flow Arts Festival, among others. The band also plays at wedding receptions, private functions, and corporate parties and events; notably of Samsung, LBC, New Era Cap Philippines, Vans Philippines, British Chamber of Commerce, British School Manila, Embassy of the United States of America in the Philippines, American Chamber of Commerce, Alpha land for Lighthouse Club Manila, Team ActivAsia, Rogue Magazine, and Radio Republic.
Definitely, the Flippin Soul Stompers continues to spark a movement in reliving the swanky soul grooves of the previous times in the Philippines!
