Funk-jazz band Soulive, comprised of Eric Krasno, Alan Evans, and Neal Evans, has been playing together for thirteen years. They formed the band in 1999 in Woodstock, New York and have since toured with musicians from the Rolling Stones and the Roots to Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer. They’ve collaborated with legends like John Scofield, Karl Denson, Ivan Neville, Bernie Worrell, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, and Robert Randolph. Technically they’re an organ trio, but these guys have lots and lots of friends. For their upcoming shows in Denver, Soulive will be joined by the Shady Horns and George Porter Jr. (the Meters) on bass, for an extra dash funk. Don’t miss Soulive’s notoriously scathing solos and deep, enduring grooves.
“An Intimate Evening with Soulive” will take place at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox on Thursday November 19 at 10pm. This show is 21+ and tickets range from $40 for general admission to $65 for Early Bird VIP or $105 for Reserved Seating, which includes a 3-course dinner.
Then on Friday and Saturday, November 20-21, Cervantes’ will be hosting Soulive, the Shady Horns and George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners for back-to-back organ fueled funk-fests. The Cervantes’ shows are 16+ and tickets cost about $22-25.
