Pop-Preview: The Royal Family Ball

from the news desk, some funky, funky news …

Come Saturday, New York City, get ready to rage. We’re not talking occupying economic centers. No, we’re talking “raging” — getting into the groove, letting your soul be free and just flat out enjoying life, all to an amazing soundtrack.

This Saturday, get ready to rage at New York City’s famed Terminal 5 and the music will be provided by the premier jazz/funk/jam trio Soulive.

2011 has been a crazy good year for the band — hosting their second Annual Bowlive concert (a 10 night stand at The Brooklyn Bowl) and their first summer music festival, The Royal Family Affair (a weekend fest in Vermont).

Now, the band is bringing their Royal Family Ball, an annual tour featuring some of their closest friends in the music world, back to New York. The show, besides featuring a night of jamtastic awesomeness from Soulive, will also see: jam legends Lettuce (featuring Eric Krasno and Neal Evans of Soulive), jazz trumpeter Roy Hargrove, New York musician Raul Midon, hip-hop artist Pharoahe Monch, human beatboxer and rapper Rahzel and Soulive’s brass section The Shady Horns rock the stage of Terminal 5.

In conjunction with the fall tour dates, Royal Family Records has dropped a fresh mixtape from Soulive drummer Al Evans entitled Dusty Diamond Vol. 1 available for free download here.
