There’s no secret here—Secret Society’s appeal lies in prioritizing impeccable live musicianship and pulsing energy over auto-tune and gimmicks. The seven-piece band is led by saxophone virtuoso Bryan Mills. Cutting his teeth by playing with other notable local musicians including The Marcus Johnson Project, Thievery Corporation, and the legendary Chuck Brown, Mills and Secret Society create a feel-good mix of R&B, hip-hop, and neo-soul as they riff on songs by Stevie Wonder, Biggie Smalls, Marvin Gaye, Lauryn Hill, and more that’ll have fans on their feet.
