NI Soul Troop


The band was formed initially as a 4-piece group, whose members met through their college (Andrew Dougherty on drums, Tom Hughes on bass & Becca Hopkins was the female vocalist). In the Summer of 2007, lead singer Donal Scullion decided to expand the bands membership, and bring back a bit of soul music to Belfast, NI.

The band was formed initially as a 4-piece group, whose members met through their college (Andrew Dougherty on drums, Tom Hughes on bass & Becca Hopkins was the female vocalist). In the Summer of 2007, lead singer Donal Scullion decided to expand the bands membership, and bring back a bit of soul music to Belfast, NI. In the early days the members of the band fluctuated slightly, with trumpet, keys and clarinet players all being replaced. In their brief time playing around Belfast and NI, the band has had to date 15 members, and has now settled comfortably into its current 9-piece line up, whose philosophy is to 'play good, original music' that should 'make you dance, make you sing, make you listen, make you happy, make you love (mostly dance though!).' Scullion lists the band's influences as "Gil Scott-Heron, Sly & the Family Stone, Bill Withers, Aretha, Otis, Marv, Bob Marley, The Skatalites, Jimmy Cliff, Parliament Funkadelic, anything George Clinton touches, Jamie Lidell, James Brown and Marlena Shaw" And the list goes on, basically they operate under the meme: "If it's got soul, then we can dig it." Adding a Northern Irish flavour to the staples of soul, funk, ska, jazz and blues, the band remains active, increasing their catalogue of original tracks that are ever increasingly well received by audiences in Belfast, and hopefully beyond.
