On Wednesday night, Soulive returned to New York City’s Brooklyn Bowl for the 7th edition of their residency at the famous venue dubbed Bowlive, which sees the group joined by a number of unique special guests during each performance.

Though not originally billed, Bobby Vega and Leslie Mendelson were also announced to perform last night’s show ahead of the event, rounding out the all-star crew.
