About Soul Express

Joo Lomenzo & JonDavid Parris of Soul Express


Soul Express consists of Joo [Ju] Lomenzo (lead vocals, guitar, and trombone) and her partner, Jonathan Parris, aka JonDavid (lead vocals and percussion). If you’re looking to get the party started, look no further! 

This dynamic duo boasts infectious personalities and smiles, as well as stage techniques that are simply irresistible - not to mention, remarkable voices and instrumental talent that shows up in every style they perform.  Their fabulous backing tracks are performed/recorded by the larger group, from which they both hail, The Orient Express Band - a powerhouse, seven-piece, dance party/wedding band, based out of Rochester, NY. 

Having literally performed in various combinations all over the world, Soul Express has the punch of a 12-piece band, all wrapped up into a two-piece dynamo. The true genius of Soul Express that sets it apart from every other band is how masterfully they navigate through the musical stylings of so many artists: Louis Armstrong, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Earth, Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye, Drake, Sade, Rihanna, James Brown, Lady Gaga, Frank Sinatra … starting to get the picture? Well then, let’s hit it! We’ll see you at your next event!
