The Alecia Chakour Band will be headlining a show tonight at Union Pool in Brooklyn that is bringing together musicians representing many of music collectives and bands in New York. “What makes this night extra exciting is that the bands feature representatives from many of the “Gangs of New York”: Royal Family Records, Daptone Records, The Royal Potato Family, folks from David Byrne’s band, TV On the Radio, Yellowbirds, and many more,” Chakour explains.
No other instrument has the same effect on the soul. From Sunday morning church to the Friday night clubs and some of your favorite recordings, the organ has tied itself both emotionally and musically with varying genres and styles, and as such has become one of the most unmistakeable sonic elements within music.

The line-up includes an exciting blend of new and established artists that are sure to complement the Soulive textures. Read on for the full schedule!
