Warren Haynes, John Scofield and Talib Kweli Attend the Royal Family Ball

New York’s Terminal 5 hosted the latest in a series of Royal Family Balls this past Friday. The revue-like event—which showcases members of the Royal Family Records roster—featured sets by intertwined bands Nigel Hall, Lettuce and Soulive. The label’s brass section The Shady Horns also performed throughout the night. In addition to Shady Horns mainstays Ryan Zodis and Sam Kininger, the expanded horn section also featured Lettuce/Dave Matthews Band’s Rashawn Ross, Maurice Brown, Christian Scott and Big Sam. Hall’s band for night was also something of an all-star jam, featuring Soulive drummer Alan Evans on backing vocals, Lettuce’s Adam Deitch on drums, Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno on bass and Lettuce guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff.

Several additional guests sat in with Lettuce and Soulive during their sets. Rapper Talib Kweli emerged for “Move Somethin,” “The Blast” and “Get By” during Lettuce’s set, while guitarist John Scofield sat in on “The Flu” and “Move On Up.” Scofield returned during Soulive’s performance for “What You See Is What You Get” and “Hottentot.” In addition, Warren Haynes joined the members of Soulive and Scofield for “Born Under a Bad Sign.” Soulive brought Scofield to the stage one final time for a medley of James Brown songs.

Nice review, jambands.com! We have a vid, details of guests and setlists. Better than some of the other sites currently. This looks like a helluva event!
