Bowlive: Soulive’s 10-Night Brooklyn Bowl Residency Starts Tonight

Starting tonight (Tues 3/2), Soulive will be playing a series of ten shows over the next two weeks at for a residency that’s been billed as “Bowlive.” Each night, they’ll be featuring a different special guest (or guests) to join them on-stage. Their list of musical guests so far includes Vernon Reid (of Living Colour), Sam Kinniger and Tash Neal (London Souls), Oteil Burbridge and Kofi Burbridge, Marco Benevento, and DJ logic, with more TBA.

I’ve got a special spot in my heart for , as I first caught them back in 1999 at the tiny Haunt in Ithaca, NY (RIP). It’s hard to believe it has been over 10 years since I first danced my butt off to songs like “Steppin,” “Turn it Out,” and “Doin’ Something.” I have fond memories of leaving that tiny sweatbox of a venue completely exhausted from dancing so hard. So it’s cool to see that these guys are still touring hard and crankin’ out more of the same soulful jazzy-funk that earned them a nice base of fans and a spot on Blue Note’s roster for a time.

    alex, next tuesday is a definite maybe for me. I’d love to catch Charlie Hunter, but that’s going to have to be a game-time decision. If I make it, I’ll ping ya. Or, just look for the other music geek snapping photos ; )
