Soulive & Trey Anastasio Band Members Close Out Ardmore Run


Soulive capped a two-night stand at the Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, Pennsylvania on Saturday. The trio was joined by Trey Anastasio Band members Natalie Cressman on trombone and James Casey on saxophone for a portion of Saturday’s concert as they were on Friday.

The trio featuring guitarist Eric Krasno, drummer Alan Evans and keyboardist Neal Evans kicked off Saturday’s set with a run of originals “Rudy’s Way,” “Shadeed” and “Miller’s Last Stand.” Krasno then shined on a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression” before the band played “King’s March” off their most recent release, Cinematics Vol. 1. Casey and Cressman first emerged a few songs later after a cover of The Allman Brothers Band’s “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” for a “Backwards Jack” that spanned nearly 15 minutes.

Natalie and James remained on stage for the rest of Soulive’s set. Cressman and Casey added to lengthy versions of “Spark” and “Nubian Lady” as well as the “Aladdin” encore. Watch pro-shot video of the full show thanks to below:
