The Greyboy Allstars returned to the Brooklyn Bowl last Friday night, wrapping up a stellar two night run at the storied venue in Brooklyn, NY's Williamsburg neighborhood. They are in the middle of the 2022 Get a Job Tour to promote their brand new album, Get a Job: Music from the Original Broadcast Series Soul Dream. This San Diego, Ca based squad dynamically elevated the Get a Job tunes as well as originals with a classy performance.
The Greyboy Allstars will release Get a Job: Music from the Original Broadcast Series Soul Dream this Friday, April 1. It's the sixth studio recording to date by the quintet comprised by Karl Denson (saxophone, flute), Elgin Park (guitars), Aaron Redfield (drums), Chris Stillwell (bass) and Robert Walter (keys). To be issued via the band's own imprint, Knowledge Room Recordings, the album was captured live in the studio during The Greyboy Allstars' 2021 Soul Dream live-stream series.
The Greyboy Allstars have announced the April 1st release of Get a Job: Music from the Original Broadcast Series Soul Dream—the sixth studio recording to date by the quintet comprised by Karl Denson (saxophone, flute), Elgin Park (guitars), Aaron Redfield (drums), Chris Stillwell (bass) and Robert Walter (keys). To be issued via the band's own imprint, Knowledge Room Recordings, the album was captured live in the studio during The Greyboy Allstars' 2021 Soul Dream live-stream series on Nugs.net.
Founding members of The New Mastersounds & The Greyboy Allstars have formed The Rare Sounds featuring Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds), Robert Walter (The Greyboy Allstars), Chris Stillwell (The Greyboy Allstars), and Zak Najor (Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, formerly GBA). The group has released their debut single "Yeah, You" ahead of their debut performances at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, CO on October 1st & 2nd.
Today, Robert Walter shares "Or Else" and "Franklin" (listen/share), the first two songs from his 'Better Feathers' series, in which the acclaimed keyboardist rolls out six new "digital 45s" via Royal Potato Family. Each release will feature two singles for a total of 12 tracks to be issued from now through October.
There are three key fundamental elements to a superior live music experience. The band, the crowd, and the space. Sure, there are factors from the outside like weather, parking, a potential Shakedown Street, and maybe even lame small-town cops. But it’s the first three that bring it all together. Two veteran acts co-billed a doubleheader at San Francisco’s legendary Great American Music Hall last Thursday and Friday.
Seminal groove band The Greyboy Allstars are comprised by some of the most revered players on the modern music scene—saxophonist Karl Denson, guitarist Elgin Park, keyboardist Robert Walter, bassist Chris Stillwell and drummer Aaron Redfield. Fast approaching their 25th year together, 2018 will be the busiest year in quite some time for the quintet.
Jazz seems to be an art for only those who really understand and/or concentrate on music. The Greyboy Allstars have been playing their funked up, improvised, powerful versions of jazz jams for almost as long as the Fox Theatre has been in existence. For two nights, they were celebrating together as part of the Fox Theatre’s 25th anniversary month. And for this celebration, they picked one of the classiest and most talented foursomes to party with.
Conductor Matt Butler is a genius! However he got inspired to come up with this idea of improvisational conducting talented musicians was brilliant. The reason that I say this is because it is very pleasant and beneficial to all parties when musicians are happier than the crowd. Everyone wins! There are only a few inspirational times when that happens. I see it when I am at major festivals and musicians are collaborating, or I see it in super jams such as the Everyone Orchestra.
