Soulive to Host the Royal Family Get Down
Soulive will celebrate its 10th anniversary with the one-day Royal Family Get Down festival on September 12. The event will take place at Northampton, MAs The Pines Theater, not far from where the trio first came together in 1999. The event will also celebrate the launch of the groups Royal Family Records and will feature opening spots from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Charlie Hunter Trio and soul singer Nigel Hall. Additional artists will be announced in the coming months.
‘Soulive has always wanted to host our own festival and bring together some of the artists who we’ve grown with over the years,’ Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno said in a statement.. ‘With this year’s Royal Family Get Down we have a lot to celebrate and we’re lucky to have such a great line up and a venue that we love in the Pines Theater.’
The Royal Family Get Down will feature the full line of Magic Hat Brewing Company’s fall line of brews! Soulive will release its new album Up Here on CD (with bonus DVD containing live footage from the Blue Note Tokyo 2008) and vinyl (with digital download) on July 7.
