Here is the full version of the performance of us playing “Slum Love” with Kimbra at Le Poisson Rouge in New York.
We just finished a great run of shows on the east coast. We started in Philly at the World Cafe. Great first show there – we’ve been wanting to come to the World cafe for a long time. And Philly too. We all need to be there more. So we will be anyhow… Friday we made it to Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. This was a great night. Tiny Hazard opened. They sound fantastic. Then we performed a collaboration set with Kimbra. She is the real deal. Please check out her latest album “The Golden Echo”. Kaveh helped out with some bass and co writing on the song “Love In High Places”. We headed to Boston after that with shows at the Bean Town Jazz Festival and then a set opening for Snarky Puppy at Berklee Performance Center. Snarky destroyed. It was great to see those guys and hear a band who plays so much like them play together. It’s our third time back to Boston in a year and it is feeling more and more like we have a home there and are building something special. We closed the tour out with a show at the Iron Horse in Northamton. Beautiful classic venue and we hope to come back soon! That night we stayed at a hotel in Hartford that should be called the Murder Inn. Creepy place but we pulled through!
Now we’re working on new music in the studio and getting ready for a European tour in November!
Friday September 26th we’ll be playing Le Poisson Rouge. Joining us for a special collaboration will be Kimbra. This will be a great night of music. We’ll also be sharing the bill with the band Tiny Hazard.
Here is a shot of Ben and Kaveh performing with Kimbra in LA at the Bootleg Theatre along with the great drummer Ronald Bruner.
