Al Howard Tour Dates

Alfred Howard & the K23 Orchestra (AHK23) are five strong rhythmic voices (Rhodes & organ, guitar, bass, drums and vocals) sculpting a collective and cohesive expression and delivering a high-energy live show fueled by rapid-fire conscious lyricism. AHK23 has found an audience in the world of funk fiends, indie fans, hip-hop heads, reggae followers and even poetry lovers. Recently wrapping up a three week summer tour of the northwest, which included festivals such as Oregon Country Fair and Island Music Festival, they will be hitting the road again shortly.

Stops on the AHK23 late summer tour include shows with New Monsoon in Sacramento, SambaDa in Berkeley, multiple dates playing with Izabella, and the Jackson Hole Mountain Festival in Wyoming with fellow lyricist Matisyahu. Largely a California-based tour with a few dates in Utah, it will conclude with the Earthdance in Laytonville, CA, on September 14. The mission of the worldwide Earthdance is "to inspire participation from promoters, clubs, artists, musicians and peace-lovers worldwide to dedicate one day to support humanitarian efforts and help unite people from all nations in a day of peaceful celebration and harmony." This is a perfect match for Alfred Howard who shares a similar message of "social change through music, art, lyricism and activism." Howard has won awards and been recognized for his mind-blowing poetry and spoken word. His poem "Definition of Patriotism" has been featured at a variety of events nationally. A performance of the poem can be seen at here.

I saw these guys at the Oregon country fair and they blew my mind. I bought their new album and have listened to it non-stop since then,and now I get to see them in Tahoe!!!! It should be quite an experience now that I know the tunes. K23 Rocks!!

This group has a distinct sound, which is a rare commodity these days. They are tight as a drum and can stop on a dime. Check them out. The lead singer is charismatic and brings a percussive vocal style which compliments the band. His voice is yet another instrument.
