Come Shake It at the Royal Family Ball on Saturday Night

October 18th, 2012

New York City’s own Royal Family Records is having a party on Saturday night at Terminal 5, and you’re invited. Two of the label’s acts, funk-jazz trio Soulive and the band’s even funkier offshoot, Lettuce, will headline the show. But what’s a party without guests? And this fiesta’s guests are pretty special: sax legend Maceo Parker (perhaps best known for his work alongside James Brown in the ’60s and Parliament-Funkadelic in the ’70s), pedal-steel virtuoso Robert Randolph and soulful singer Ledisi. It’ll be a night of tight funk, cool jazz, choice covers and great sit-ins. So do yourself a favor: Check out the video, above, to know what kind of music you can expect, and then come join the party. Just be prepared to get down.
