Deep Soul Grooves


#MPLS is one of Minneapolis’ premier live R&B, Soul, Funk, and Hip-Hop bands. First organized just three years ago as a back-up band, #MPLS has quickly become the house band of choice for many touring neo-soul artists and a complete show package on their own.

#MPLS have shared the stage with such national recording artists as Mint Condition, Eric Roberson, Jamecia Bennett, Paris Bennett, Next, and many others.

This “All-Star” band is a true amalgam of talent drawing from several Minnesota institutions. They are lead by Brandon Commodore – Drums (drummer for Mint Condition & the Sounds of Blackness), and David Billingsley – Keys (Robert Robinson, The Sounds of Blackness). With BreAsha Turner and Ashley Commodore (The Sounds Of Blackness) on vocals, guitarists Jesse Larson, David Glen (Hustle Rose), along with the poetic flow of Beeph (Just.Live).
