Sonny & Company was formed by Andrew Booker Jr. aka Sonny, an inspired bass player who had a vision of what a band performing “Old School R&B” could bring to the entertainment world.
Throughout his life Sonny followed bands like “Earth, Wind, & Fire” and “Kool and the Gang”; musicians such as “Stanley Clark”, “Kirk Whallum” and “Marcus Miller”. Sonny understood the beauty of each distinct instrument and was determined to have this splendid sound in his band. Musicians were found as Sonny traveled from New Jersey to NYC. Eleven members were found in which he knew without a doubt could bring the uniqueness that only great bands could deliver. Sonny also knew that not only were the instrumentalists a key factor of the band but the vocalists were equally important. This once again took Sonny on a search for truly gifted vocalist. Vocalists were found “that could not only sing, “push back your chairs”; the vocalists from Sonny & Company are bringing the audience to their feet.
