Special to the Daily

VAIL, Colorado – You can’t be a soul music fan or aficionado without having a little Dazz Band on your i-pod. Nor can you have a soul music festival without inviting them to perform. The Dazz Band has been added to the Vail Soul Music Festival’s lineup and will bring their signature soulful sound to Vail at 7p.m. on Saturday.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, the Dazz Band’s group’s biggest hit songs include the Grammy Award-winning “Let It Whip” (1982), “Joystick” (1983), and the ultimate love song, “Heartbeat” (1984).

Described as funk masters and smooth soul vocalists, The Dazz Band will bring their roster of old and new, recognizable brand of soul to the second night of the musical festival, joining soul artist Dwele, hip-hop violinist Lee England Jr., and Denver’s Jonathan Bryant.

Friday’s Soul Music Fest line-up includes Vail’s own T’Leon, Liv Warfield, Chrisette Michele and headliner Raphael Saadiq.

Vail Soul Music Fest tickets are available at Eagle Valley Music, located in the West Vail Mall and Ford Amphitheater box office. Single day ticket pricing starts at $35 pre-purchase or $45 day of the show. Complete festival details can be found online at
