Based in Point Loma, the Players Touch formed in 2007. Made up of a lead guitarist, a bassist, a drummer, two male vocalists, and a female vocalist, their sound is a mix of soul and hip-hop, spiced with a pinch of jazz.
The band plays around town at Riley’s Sports Bar, JT’s Clubhouse, the Kava Lounge, and 710 Beach Club.
