Karl Denson's Tiny Universe Announces Winter Tour Dates

Article Contributed by Calabro Music Media | Published on Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe is gearing up for its biggest year yet. In February, the band plans to release its first new studio album in over 5 years entitled 'Gnomes & Badgers.' Details on this latest recording are forthcoming. In the meantime, however, KDTU has announced a number of tour dates to both close out 2018 and kick-off 2019, including the annual, star-studded Karl Denson birthday bash shows for one night only at the Belly Up in Denson's hometown San Diego and two nights at The Fillmore in San Francisco, a two-night New Year's Eve celebration at Revolution Hall in Portland, OR and a nine show run through the Southeast in January that leads in and out of their appearance on Jam Cruise 17.

Masterfully incorporating elements of vintage rock, old school soul and classic funk, KDTU features the inimitable saxophonist/flutist/vocalist Karl Denson and his long-standing six piece unit that includes guitarist DJ Williams, drummer Zak Najor, bassist Chris Stillwell, keyboardist David Veith, trumpeter Chris Littlefield and slide/lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman. Along with KDTU, Denson—who the Austin Chronicle declared "embodies modern honk"—currently serves as the touring saxophonist with The Rolling Stones, while continuing to hold down his role as a founding member of the seminal funk band, Greyboy Allstars.
