Souzi and the Cool Mints
Hey groovers! Get fresh with Souzi and the Cool Mints. A taste of smoky ballads, cool jazz, rampant rhythm & blues and funky grooves is what you'll get from this collection of some of Adelaide's hottest musicians.
Heading the band with style, soul and a warmth beckoning you to join in the fun is vocalist Souzi Wilson supported by "Slinky" Steve Wilson on guitar (so named for his super smooth style), Charming Gabs Chammah on tantalizing tenor sax, the multi talented Vincent Ciccarello on keys and driving this chariot with the barely restrained force of a Ben Hur, is Larry Todd on drums (if you don't know that the name Todd equals drums in this town, then you must have just beamed down from some far-off place).
The regular line up is five piece but the Cool Mints love nothing more than to stretch out to the full eight piece shebang taking your night to the dizzying heights of raging rhythm & blues heaven.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for just the right ambience for your event the Cool Mints Trio can provide a cool vibe whether it is a meet and greet corporate affair or a family celebration with less whoopin’ and hollerin’ (that’s the family, not the band) required.
Collectively, these musicians have worked with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, The Boy from Oz, West Side Story and Hot Shoe Shuffle.
They have backed interstate and overseas artists such as Ray Charles, Shirley Bassey, Jerry Lewis, Tom Burlinson, Jackie Love, Kerry Anne Kennerly, Julie Anthony, Barry Crocker, Glen Shorrock, The Platters, The Coasters and many others, so you know you’re dealing with high calibre professionals.
