Atlanta retro-soul band will open 2013-14 Doudna season

CHARLESTON — The Doudna Fine Arts Center at Eastern Illinois University will kick off its 2013-14 season with a Ruby Velle and The Soulphonics concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

The Atlanta, Ga.-based band performs what some people call retro-soul or dynamic rhythm and blues; the roots of the music are found in the sound and history of Georgia soul.

Tickets are $15 for the general public, $12 for senior citizens age 62 and older, and $7 for students. They may be purchased at or at the Doudna box office, which is open 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and one hour prior to the scheduled performance.
