Soulive @ Rothbury

souliverothbury@AndyShore The first time I saw Soulive, I had no idea what to expect. I went in knowing nothing, and left with an addiction to funk. When I saw them on the line-up for Rothbury 2009, they rose to the top of my most anticipated shows. Their newest album was mostly instrumental, but with a festival full of talents singers I had high hopes for a sit-in. I even left a stellar Damian Marley & Nas show to see as much of Soulive as I could. I wandered up too late to take photos, but still caught most of their set.

 

The trio was enhanced by the Shady Horns, a sax and trumpet player. As the Evans brothers kept the crowd into it on drums and keys, Eric Krasno wailed away on the guitar. They burned through new and old tunes alike as the relatively sparce crowd danced along. Soulive welcomed frequent vocal contributer Nigel Hall to the stage to play “Too Much” off their new disc Up Here. Hall continued with the band for a couple of incredible covers. First off was a quick nod to the King of Pop with “Dancing Machine.” Second was Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up.” Despite some excessive vocal noodling, the cover resonated with the crowd.
