Having just completed a tour of Australia and New Zealand as saxophonist in The Rolling Stones, San Diego-based funk-rock icon Karl Denson gets right back to it with his band, Tiny Universe, touring the U.S. in 2015. KDTU will be joined on the tour by celebrated sacred steel guitarist Roosevelt Collier, best known for his work in The Lee Boys. With the electrifying Collier in tow, Denson is sure to dig into the grittier side of his musical oeuvre, including stand outs like “My Baby,” “Everybody Knows That” and his raucous rendition of The White Stripes “Seven Nation Army.” These and more can be found on KDTU’s most recent LP, New Ammo, which All Music declared “easily their most musically adventurist album yet” and DownBeat praised as “music for both the party and for fans of instrumental prowess.”
Approaching two decades strong, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is a prolific touring juggernaut that regularly perform over 150 shows a year. An acclaimed reedman and songwriter in his own right, Denson is also one of the founding members of seminal boogaloo revivalists, The Greyboy Allstars. He first came to national attention as a member of Lenny Kravitz’s Let Love Rule-era band.
