See Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe LIVE at the Orpheum Theater in Downtown New Orleans on Friday, May 3rd at 9 pm. Doors open at 8 pm.
Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is gearing up for its biggest year yet in 2019. In February, the band releases its first new studio album in over five years entitled ‘Gnomes & Badgers.’ Highly regarded as one of the best live acts on the planet, the new recording distills the sweeping stylistic range of KDTU’s concert performances into its own authentic sound. Masterfully incorporating elements of vintage rock, old school soul and classic funk, 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, have delivered what is undoubtedly their strongest work yet. As always, KDTU will hit the road hard with plans to visit all corners of the U.S. on a national tour supporting ‘Gnomes & Badgers.’ 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, The Greyboy Allstars.
