Does everyone in the Soliano family play music/sing?
Yes, everyone in the family sings and plays the instruments individually.
What has changed in the Jazz industry compared to when the Soliano family first started 30 years ago?
Actually jazz music hasn’t changed at all. It’s just that we have to educate the young ones to keep on listening to it and to hopefully love it just as our family did. Having born in a family of 10 siblings, we are very thankful for the great influence we received from our late father.
What was the most memorable performance for the family?
We did a Christmas show for RTM when we had the whole family together; that was in the early eighties!
