KARL DENSON'S TINY UNIVERSE
Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is back in action with a string of dates featuring legendary keyboardist Melvin Seals, known for his work with the Jerry García Band. Karl, who now serves as the saxophonist in The Rolling Stones, is fresh off a tour with the legendary rock band that included the highest grossing concert festival of all time, Desert Trip. With KDTU, he’ll be showcasing material from his forthcoming studio album, due in early 2017, as well as previous acclaimed KDTU recordings like 'New Ammo' and ’The Bridge.' The current KDTU touring lineup is comprised of Richmond guitarist DJ Williams, Soulive drummer b, Greyboy Allstars bassist Chris Stillwell, Crush Effects keyboardist David Veith, Seattle trumpeter Chris Littlefield and ace slide and lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman.
Melvin Seals
Melvin Seals
Melvin is best known for his long friendship and musical partnership with cultural icon and guitarist Jerry Garcia and the smile of his that lights up the room. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become “Jam Band Music”.

Current projects include Melvin Seals and JGB, Melvin Seals Melting Pot, The Rock Collection, Terrapin Flyer and The Mix. The best is yet to come. From blues to funk to rock to bluegrass, The Mix serves up a tasty mix with a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up. Each member of this powerhouse lineup brings an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and remarkable chops to the table. With acoustic and electric ingredients and unique combinations of guitar, mandolin, slide and lap steel with savory bass, hearty drums and, of course, a heapin’ helpin’ of the wizard’s magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards, the result is a most satisfying blend of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. Their chemistry is the focus from which they create a spontaneous and high art where the sky is the limit musically. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that keeps audiences dancing and smiling (and some staring in amazement) for several hours. Melvin is pioneering a path deeper into the musical territory he helped to establish.

The Melvin Seals’ performances are a must see, must feel experience!!! Their music is guaranteed to get into your soul, raise your spirit and get you groovin’!!!

Groove 8 began in Charlotte NC in 2005 with a collection of the city's best independent jazz musicians collaborating to form the project. the band began performing locally and expanded regionally. Groove 8 focused its sights on the college music scene and released its first album under the name RARE B-SIDE GROOVES in 2007 - a loose collection of original instrumentals popular with its fans. That was followed by DEBUT which became the band's first full length album and was recorded and produced by Groove 8 and Alan Evans (Drummer for Soulive) at his Play On Brother Studio In Massachusetts. In 2012 Groove 8 released CURIOUS POSES which included two vocal tracks for the first time. Most recently the band released for free download a collection of its hits from all three albums entitled REFLECTIONS OF SOUl: THE MIXTAPE SINGLES 2005-2012 this past February.
