Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas opened to the public last night with a show featuring Soulive and special guests. Krasno along with Neal and Alan Evans invited the likes of George Porter Jr., Nigel Hall and The Shady Horns to join them throughout the two-set show.
While guests didn’t appear until late in the first set, Soulive performed as a trio, delivering songs such as “Eleanor Rigby” and “Third Stone From the Sun” in typical Soulive fashion. The Shady Horns took the stage for “Flurries” and ended up staying through the rest of the show.
Nigel Hall followed, finishing the first set with the band on “Too Much,” “Rule the World” and “Lay Away,” the last of which featured George Porter Jr. The Meters bassist would join The Shady Horns and Soulive throughout the second set on all songs except for the opener, “El Ron.” Hall too would return later in the show for “Check Out Your Mind’ and “Just Kissed My Baby.”
The finale featured all guests on stage for a James Brown Medley that brought the show to an exciting finish. Soulive will return tonight for the final of three shows on opening weekend. The band performed a special “Friends and Family Opening Night Party” on Friday night, signifying the official opening of Brooklyn Bowl Vegas.
