TRU SOL BAND has had the attention of audiences since they first arrived on the scene in November of 2004. Not only did they make a lasting impression, they became one of the top-drawing bands in the Myrtle Beach area. These fun-filled entertainers take pride in their soulful renditions of classics from the Motown Era up to the present Hip Hop and R&B Era. Their performances are electrifying and guaranteed to keep the crowd happy. Tru Sol is the ideal band for every occasion. Whether you are getting married, celebrating a birthday or an anniversary, hosting a major event or just want to party, Tru Sol can provide the best in live entertainment. Tru Sol consists of team players who all have a strong desire to play music for a long time. Meet the entertainers...

The lady of Tru Sol, Sheryta Spears, has been gracing stages all over the Grand Strand since the mid 90's as a member of the a cappella group, Cymp'l Touch. She was born in Latta, SC where her sultry voice took flight. Audiences can see and feel her passion from the first note to the last. Music from the soul is definitely a driving force in her life.

The founder of Tru Sol is guitarist, Dorian Samuel, born in Jersey City, NJ. Dorian is a veteran performer and has performed in the a cappella group, Dejour. He initially started playing the bass at a young age. His love for melody and rhythm inspired him to start practicing on the acoustic guitar. His devotion to the band displays that his overall passion for soul music has no limits.

Born in Kingstree, SC, Merrell Samuel, a bassist since the age of 14, spent most of his life playing the smoothest instrument and therefore carrying the groove. His distinct musical style and melodic vocals definitely make people turn their heads. His false-setto tone and good ear for music proves that he is not lacking in the soul department.
These front entertainers are backed by three very impressionable musicians. Jerry McFadden is a devotee of funk and blues music. His 20 plus years as a guitarist is mainly influenced by the way music makes him feel. Mark McKinnon has played for well known gospel artists up and down the east coast. His style of drumming is unique partly because he is also a live DJ. Cary Simpson played keyboards for 20 plus years for several different acts as well. His limitless musical imagination and skills on the keys definitely brings extra flavor to the band.

Tru Sol Band also offers the option of adding a horn section to the backline when requested.
