For nearly three decades, legendary saxophonist Karl Denson has been getting crowds around the world out on the dance floor. Approaching iconic status, Denson has moved bodies and minds dating back to his earliest years with Lenny Kravitz's band through his ongoing tenure as a founding member of seminal boogaloo revivalists The Greyboy Allstars and his current roll as a member of San Diego dub rockers Slightly Stoopid. Nowhere, however, is this more apparent than with his own band, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe. Touring relentlessly for the past 15 years and leaving a massive audience in his wake, fans know that when KDTU is in town a dance party will ensue.
In Fall 2013, Karl and the Tiny Universe get back to it heading out on a 39-date U.S. tour that will debut material from a forthcoming new album due in early 2014 on Stoopid Records. Additionally, KDTU will hook up with looping master Zach Deputy and the Cosmic Horns on the West Coast portion of the run for a string of shows creating a “Ray Charles Boogaloo Dance Party.” A handful of festival dates will also be mixed into the tour, including stops at Telluride Blues and Brews, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Mustang Music Festival, as well as two sets at Bear Creek Music Festival. On New Year's Eve, KDTU will ring in 2014 with the city of Chicago at Park West.
