Four Nights of Robert Randolph and the Family BandNovember 22nd, 2011
Let’s just say it: Robert Randolph is a virtuoso on the pedal steel guitar. And he and his Family Band have been bringing an exuberant mix of rock, funk, blues, gospel and soul to the masses since 2000. Prior to that many of them only played in church, but once the word got out about this group’s electric shows and joyful sound, led by Randolph’s sacred steel, momentum quickly built. If you’ve ever been to one of their shows, you already know they’re filled with smiles and happy feet. And if you haven’t, you’re in for a real treat because Robert Randolph and the Family Band (above, covering “Voodoo Chile” at the North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands) play Brooklyn Bowl tonight, tomorrow, Friday and Saturday. If you like to have fun, make sure to buy a ticket in advance.
