Following the sold-out, high-energy first edition of The Funk Sessions, the February lineup for Live For Live Music‘s monthly residency at Denver’s Cervantes’ Other Side has been announced. Set to take place on Tuesday, February 26th, the latest lineup will see Turkuaz singer Shira Elias host her own hand-picked and curated group of talent from across the jam and funk scenes.
Joining the sensational vocalist will be drummer Jeremy Salken (Big Gigantic), keyboardist Borahm Lee (Break Science/Pretty Lights Live Band), guitarist DJ Williams (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe/Shots Fired), bassist Dan Africano (John Brown’s Body), and trumpet player Parris Fleming (The Motet). Expect some deep funk, soul, and jazz grooves from this incredible formation of talent when they perform together as one unit for the first time ever at the February edition of the exciting new residency.
With a powerful range and true devotion to soul and funk music, Elias has cemented herself as one of the finest vocal talents in live music. In addition to her powerhouse work with Turkuaz, she has stepped out as a frontwoman in recent years, leading the charge on projects such as her own Shira Elias’ Soul Tracks featuring Nikki Glaspie, Lyle Divinsky, Nick Cassarino, and more at this past year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive. Now, she’ll harness those talents to lead the second-ever edition of The Funk Sessions.
Tickets for this show are on sale now via Ticketfly.
