Soulive to Record End of July Concerts

Organ trio Soulive’s upcoming three-night run at the Tribeca Rock Club in New York City from July 29-31 will be documented in a series of double-disc CD sets that will be available for pre-order by concert attendees shortly after each show. The discs, titled Live in New York City, won’t actually be in fans’ hands until a week after the concerts. The companies producing the CDs, DiscLive and Pirate, will use that week to package the discs with artwork and ship them to fans. Both companies have prepared similar releases documenting concerts by the Pixies and Buddy Guy in the recent past.

Fans who don’t attend the concerts at the small New York venue will be able to download each show within four hours of its completion from www.netburncd.com. Copies of the discs can also be pre-ordered starting today at www.disclive.com.

The recordings and the concerts will help promote Music for America, a non-profit organization working to get young voters involved in the political process. Music for America will also have a voter registration booth on site at the Soulive shows. More information on the organization can be found at www.musicforamerica.com.

The three volumes of Live in New York City will mark Soulive’s first release since the band completed its three album commitment to Blue Note, and these will be the band’s first live recordings featuring full performances. Soulive, comprised of guitarist Eric Krasno, drummer Alan Evans and organist Neal Evans, formed in 1999 and has since found success in the jam-band scene. The band has shared the stage with the Rolling Stones and the Dave Matthews Band, and recently appeared at the Bonnaroo and Glastonbury music festivals. For this upcoming live recording series, Soulive has invited special guests to be announced. The band will also perform new material not yet recorded in the studio, including some cover tunes.
