About Old Soul Brew

Old Soul Brew is a thoughtful mixture of talented young musicians with the familiar musical aroma of the past. Old Soul Brew began fermenting while all the founding members were studying Jazz at Oregon State University. They started performing at local bars and wineries and built a reputation as the youngsters that can entertain any crowd – dining or dancing. Old Soul Brew performs many musical styles from your favorite Jazz Standards to that Funk song that gets you up and cutting the rug.

Like your favorite brew, this mix of talented young musicians is blended and fermented to your taste – Instrumental arrangements ranging from solo piano to a full 6-pack band. Using only the best musical ingredients, Old Soul Brew always goes down smooth.
