|Soup Camel Music is Soup Camel, Motown Minnie K, The Beat Doctor, The Lovely
Kimberlee Thorne, Delta Dave and Michael Ginsberg. Their music is an eclectic mix
of genres that can only be described as Americana. Mostly acoustic in nature, it is
rooted in the Jazz/Blues era from the 1920's to the 1940's and beyond with
occasional journeys into World Music. When asked what kind of music they play
the answer is, "The music that we like." Soup Camel Music is for fun!

Kim has always been around music and has shown her
prowess by filling in at several slots in the band.
