Soulive, Lettuce Rock The Royal Family Ball
Soulive, Lettuce, Nigel Hall Band and Alecia Chakour all came together for the Royal Family Ball this past Saturday. A number of special guests joined the Royal Family artists at the epic event, which took place at Terminal 5 in New York City. The show kicked off with opening performances by Nigel Hall and Alecia Chakour before the headlining sets from Soulive and Lettuce.
Soulive was joined by a horn section for El Ron before playing a back to back to back cover onslaught that included The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby,” Jimi Hendrix “Third Stone From The Sun” and Stevie Ray Vaughn’s “Lenny.” The horn section then came out again for “Vapor.” Singer Ledisi joined Soulive for “Love Never Changes” and “Them Changes,” with Robert Randolph also taking the stage on the latter song. The set ended with a rendition of Hendrix’s “Crosstown Traffic.”
Lettuce played the final set of the night. The band was joined by Alecia Chakour on “Do Your Thing.” Legendary Parliament/Funkadelic saxophonist Maceo Parker sat in on “P-Funk Intro,” and Robert Randolph, Nigel Hall and Alecia Chakour came out for “Night Time.” The set ended with a cover of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up.” You can check out Relix’s full gallery of photos from the Royal Family Ball here.
