Oct. 2, 2012 - PRLog -- DALLAS – Despite the rain showers which moved through the area this past weekend, Quentin Moore, founder of Soulbol Pro Presents…, is going on with the show.

Moore announced the “Soul Extravaganza: Tribute to ‘Old School’ Soul Music” show originally planned for Sept. 28 was cancelled because of the inclement weather. However, the songfest has been rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 5 on the patio of J.Pepe’s, 2720 N. Stemmons in Dallas. Doors open at 8 p.m., with the show slated to start at 9 p.m.

The upcoming show will feature some of Dallas’ and Fort Worth’s top singers and musicians covering some of the best soul, R&B, and pop sounds from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Also scheduled to perform are smooth jazz guitarist Michael Walker from Garland and multi-talented singer Angela Blair from Dallas.

Music from Aretha Franklin, the Isley Brothers, Marvin Gaye, Chaka Khan, Al Green, Prince, Diana Ross, Curtis Mayfield, Frankie Beverly & Maze, and Michael Jackson is planned, Moore said. A tribute to Mayfield and Maze is on Moore’s playlist.

After the concert, an old-school dance party hosted by D.J. Tony Rojo will take place. Guests can enjoy Tex-Mex, drink specials all night long ($3 margaritas and domestics, $5 Wells), and free parking. Dress to impress, therefore, no tennis shoes or tall tees allowed.

Tickets are $15 presale and before 9 p.m. and $20 after 9 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit soulextra.com

In addition, Moore will headline a workshop, titled “Real Music for Kids,” to help the youth understand the roots of jazz, soul, and R&B. The event, scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6 at Lue’isiana Po Boys, 1104 S. Elm St. in Carrollton, will feature a live performance from Moore and friends

“This is an awareness-type thing. The goal is to orientate them to live musicianship and inspire them to become musicians,” the Austin native said.

There will also be a question-and-answer session with participating musicians and parents will have the opportunity to sign their kids up for music lessons.

“Real Music for Kids” is free for children 17 and under and $10 for everyone else. For more information on either event, email qmooremusic@yahoo.com.
