Brooklyn Comes Alive Sets 2018 Lineup

Brooklyn Comes Alive will once again bring a multi-venue, collaboration-filled musical celebration to the New York City borough this fall, and this year’s lineup of various tributes and one-off superjams has been confirmed today.

First up in this year’s BCA offerings will be a few tributes, including the Purple Party Prince tribute that first took place at this year’s Jazz Fest in New Orleans and will feature bassist MonoNeon and members of Snarky Puppy, The Motet, Turkuaz and more. A performance in memory of “Col. Bruce Hampton, Butch Trucks, Gregg Allman and Those We’ve Lost…” will feature George Porter Jr, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Lettuce guitarist Adam Smirnoff, Jeff Sipe, Peter Levin and vocalist Elise Testone, while a Steely Dan tribute will be lead by The Motet’s Joey Porter with members of his band plus musicians from The Nth Power, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, Snarky Puppy and Primates vocalist Hayley Jane.

Lettuce drummer Adam Deitch will also lead his own Quartet, and The Disco Biscuits’ Marc Brownstein will team up with his Breaking Biscuits partner Borahm Lee of Break Science, along with Dumpstaphunk’s Alvin Ford Jr. and Rebelution’s Khris Royal. Iconic New Orleans drummer Johnny Vidacovich will lead a trio featuring keyboardist Robert Walter and Lettuce trumpeter Eric Bloom; drummer Nikki Glaspie will join Scott Metzger, MonoNeon, Skerik and Cory Henry; Lettuce’s Eric “Jesus” Coomes will host the Baby Jesus Peasant Party; bassist Karina Rykman will bring her newly formed Experiment to BCA; a trio of Dopapod founders, Eli Winderman, Rob Compa and Michelangelo Carubba (now with Turkuaz), will reunite; Turkuaz vocalist Shira Elias will lead a Soul Tracks throwback performance with members of The Nth Power, The Motet and more; and Katharsis will feature The Motet’s Dave Watts, keyboardist Todd Stoops, Dopapod’s Chuck Jones and Digital Tape Machine’s Marcus Rezak.

Among other musical groups, this year’s BCA will also include a lineup of comedians performing “Wokes with Jokes: Stand-Up Comedy About The Jamband Scene.”
