Soulive resumed their Bowlive VII residency at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City on Friday night. The trio shared the stage with The Shady Horns, Meters’ bassist George Porter Jr. and guitarist Marcus King at the penultimate show of the eight-concert run.
The guest action came right from the start as The Shady Horns of Eric “Benny” Bloom and Ryan Zoidis assisted Soulive on “Cannonball” and “Reverb.” King emerged to lead a cover of Blind Faith’s “Had To Cry Today” and his own “Rita Is Gone.” Marcus also contributed to Bill Withers’ “For My Friend,” “Joyful Girl” and a blazing cover of the Allman Brothers Band classic “Whipping Post.” Soulive then brought out old friend George Porter Jr. to join in with the horns and Marcus King on The Meters’ “Ain’t No Use” to close the first set.
Friday’s second set featured a number of Meters songs played by Soulive and Porter Jr. including “Pungee,” “Look Ka Py Py,” “Africa” and “Message From The Meters.” Porter Jr. also led a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Sugaree” with help from Marcus King. The night came to a close with a “Just Kissed My Baby” encore.
Bowlive VII wraps up on Saturday night at Brooklyn Bowl with Lettuce keyboardist/vocalist Nigel Hall and The Shady Horns slated to guest with Soulive. A webcast is available via nugs.tv.
