BROOKLYN BOWL ANNOUNCES TWO-WEEK RESIDENCY WITH SOULIVE
Brooklyn Bowl will host two weeks of Soulive, March 2-6 and March 9-13. The veteran soul groove outfit's much anticipated residency, aptly dubbed "Bowlive," is set for ten funk-infused evenings, glittered with special guests every night.
"We built Brooklyn Bowl with these types of events in mind," says Brooklyn Bowl co-owner Peter Shapiro. "We wanted to create an environment where bands can stretch out, invite some friends over and jam. We didn't think it would be for 10 nights, but when the opportunity to have Soulive camp out at the Bowl came by, we jumped at the chance."
Soulive reached its 10th anniversary last year and the band couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with 10 nights at Bowl. The run harkens back to the days of the Wetlands (Shapiro's legendary club). "We cut our teeth at the Wetlands," says guitarist Eric Krasno. "To this day, we've still probably played there more than any other club. Playing Brooklyn Bowl feels like a natural continuation of our early days at the Wetlands."
Along with this decade milestone, the trio launched its own label, Royal Family Records, with a focus on digital distribution and the releases of the Soulive family's side projects. Look for numerous Royal Family label mates to appear at Bowlive including Lettuce, Adam Deitch, Nigel Hall and others.
In 2010, Soulive turns their attention to the Fab Faux. The band has recorded an LP of timeless Beatles' classics. Dubbed Rubber Soulive, the bands put their groove twist on "Eleanor Rigby," "Taxman," "In My Life" and many others. Keep your ears peeled for Beatles' grooves amongst the legendary Soulive grooves at Bowlive.
