Soul Candy is an "otaku rock" band consisting of talented musicians who are also otaku--big anime fans. As such, they specialize in playing songs and music from your favorite anime series, new and old.
Hailing from the Seattle/King County area in Washington, USA, Soul Candy (Christabelle, Josh, Carlos and Isaac) is quickly being recognized as a formidable performer in various conventions, rock shows, and festivals.
They formed in July 2008 to perform for a local Filipino festival called Pista Sa Nayon. They then decided to try their hand at getting gigs at anime conventions. Since then they performed at Aki-Con, the new convention in Everett, Washington, and at the famous Sakura-Con in Seattle earlier this year. They then had their first club gig at the Club Motor in Seattle, then followed up recently with an appearance at Anime Evolution in Vancouver, Canada, where they received a warm reception.
The band also likes to cosplay for their shows in the true spirit of otakudom, and looks forward to get chances to play for fans of similar interests.
