JAZZ ALLEY $10 FALL SPECIAL - Tues/Wednesday, September 29 & 30
Jazz Alley presents Sonny Knight & The Lakers
Tickets: $10 (includes $4 service fee)

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley (2033 6th Avenue) welcomes vintage soul singer Sonny Knight & The Lakers, on tour in support of their new release Do It Live. Band members are Sonny Knight (vocals), Riley Helgeson (trumpet), Tony Beaderstadt (trombone), Cole Pulice (saxophones), (Blair Krivanek, guitar), Sam Harvery-Carlson (organ), Nick Salisbury (bass), Eric Foss (drums). Show times Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. both nights.

Sonny Knight and the Lakers exist in the afterglow that soul luminaries like Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin created with their raucous, kinetic, and supreme live performances. Sonny Knight and the Lakers Do It Live, from the eponymous group, is a loving return to the height of live Rhythm and Blues, with Knight and his band perfectly capturing the uproarious vibe and rebellious musicianship of an era long gone in their first live album release. A year of steady touring through the U.S. and Europe has allowed the group to create a seamless set, mixing songs from their critically-acclaimed debut studio album, I'm Still Here, with a couple covers of classic soul songs from their native Minneapolis, and re-imagined bits from Led Zeppelin and James Brown. Recorded in their hometown of Minneapolis at the Dakota Jazz Club over two nights and four performances, Sonny Knight and the Lakers aim to bring a new focus on the art of the live record. Hoping to add to the rich history of live albums rather than producing something merely derivative, they set out to reconstruct the ephemeral experience of a live concert and earn a permanent place on your record shelf. The double LP/CD release will be available in stores and digitally June 23rd via Secret Stash Records.

The hard-soul powerhouse that is Sonny Knight & The Lakers have quickly gained ground in their hometown, from being named one of "The Best New Minnesota Musicians of 2014' via the City Pages, to topping the Minneapolis Star Tribune's list of the best live act of 2014 due to their "high-energy funk-blasting' shows. Accolades for I'm Still Here rolled in from top national outlets as well. NPR's World Café professed the album is "New "old-school' soul music,' and that "it captures the singer sounding as vital as ever...a wonderful album.' WBEZ's Sound Opinions even prophesized that "It sounds like a live recording...It has that sort of vibrancy to it, and Sonny Knight is the goods with his vocal power."

Asked what he thought about his latest achievement of recording a live album after many years outside of the music industry, Sonny Knight muses: "Doing this record took away a lot of fears. There is always something to learn. But I'm not afraid anymore... I feel like we can do anything right now.' Knight's optimism coincides with the band heading back to the studio this summer to record their second studio album. www.sonnyknight.com
