Soulive puts on one hell of a live show, and their Friday performance, part of their 10-day residency at Brooklyn Bowl, was no exception. Brooklyn Bowl was packed and they must be extremely happy to have a band that can draw every single night. You don't see many short and extensive residencies like this, but it looks like the Bowl has the clout, space and equipment to keep the audience fresh and the performers happy.

It's completely amazing to me how a three piece band can make so much noise; their keyboard player rocked the Rhodes while plowing through ripping bass lines on his synth keyboard. At the start of the show the guys plowed through three Beatles covers including "Revolution," "Eleanor Rigby" and "I Want You". They were then joined by a number of horn players and percussionists to help round out the sound. They were also accompanied by vocalists Van Hunt, Alicia Chakour and Nigel Hal. Van Hunts original song "Anything To Get Your Attention" was a highlight of the set. The second set was packed with all special guests including Kofi Burbridge (flute), Chris Rob (keys), Adam Smirnoff (bass), Brown and Denson. Break Science played the late night set to end the evening.
