Soulful ear candy floated through the air in the Grove on Friday night, provided courtesy of Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics.

Ruby brought her unique style and incredible southern rhythm and blues for an intimate show at the Gramophone. There is not much about Ruby that would lead you to believe that her performance channels years of life experiences and southern soul, but your ears will prove your eyes wrong. Her voice transports you to a time of smoky cellar speakeasies.  

Do not confuse the group with a period imitator, though. Ruby's lyrics are a poignant commentary on life and in many cases aim to provoke change. Patrons could not help but be transformed into participants of the show, filling the dance floor and grinding to the hypnotic sounds of Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics.

The show was opened by Hazard to Your Booty, which, as the name implies, got the crowd loose and limber with its funky brass sounds.
