George Porter Jr. and Marcus King Join Soulive for Allman Brothers and Meters Covers

Soulive played the penultimate night of their eight-show Bowlive VII run at Brooklyn Bowl last night, continuing the constant stream of guests with legendary bassist George Porter Jr., guitar phenom Marcus King and longtime collaborators The Shady Horns all pitching in throughout the Friday evening.

After joining the band in a surprise early performance the previous night, King returned for his his official Bowlive appearance and helped the trio out with some tunes like the Allman Brothers Band’s “Whipping Post,” echoing the extended “Elizabeth Reed” from Thursday night. Porter Jr. also returned to continue his role as “Captain of Bowlive,” as Eric Krasno calls him, first leading the way through The Meters classic “Ain’t No Use” near the end of the first set.

Watch videos from last night above and below. Soulive round out Bowlive VII tonight with a finale featuring Nigel Hall and the return of The Shady Horns. The show will be webcast via
