Soulive continued its Brooklyn Bowl residency last night, with an extended, unannounced tribute to a ‘60s rock icon. The Nigel Hall Band opened the night with Nigel Hall (vocals, keys), Adam Smirnoff (bass), Eric Krasno (guitar), Neal Evans (keys), Nikki Glaspie (drums), and vocalists Alicia Chakour, Mel Flannery and Tania Jones. The Soulive trio then played a seven song set, which included “Shaheed,” “Alladin” and a spacey “Azucar.” The Shady Horns’ Ryan Zoidis (sax), Cheme Gastelum (sax), and James Casey (sax), joined for “PJs” and Nigel Hall shared Neal Evans’ Hammond keyboard for the final song, “Tuesdays.”

Still the peak of the show came when the band returned after midnight with Living Colour’s Corey Glover (who originally had been slated to appear on Thursday evening). The quartet then began an extended focus on the music of Jimi Hendrix, beginning with “Manic Depression.” Robert Randolph then stepped out a short while later for “Stone Free,” “Power of Love” and “Fire.” During “Little Wing,” which followed, Randolph, Glover and Hall performed the robot dance while Alicia Chakour sang lead with back-up vocalists Lenesha Randolph, Mel Flannery, Glover and Hall. From Hendrix, the crowd was treated to two Sly and the Family Stone’s songs, “Sing a Simple Song” and a explosive “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin),” which closed out the set at 2 a.m.

Robert Randolph will return this evening as week one of Bowlive concludes, with The London Souls opening the night.
