ABOUT KARL DENSON: For nearly three decades, legendary saxophonist Karl Denson has been getting crowds around the world out on the dance floor. Approaching iconic status, Denson has moved bodies and minds dating back to his earliest years with Lenny Kravitz's band through his ongoing tenure as a founding member of seminal boogaloo revivalists The Greyboy Allstars and his current roll as a member of San Diego dub rockers Slightly Stoopid. Nowhere, however, is this more apparent than with his band, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe. Touring relentlessly for the past 15 years and leaving a massive audience in his wake, fans know that when KDTU is in town a dance party will ensue.
Karl and his band are back on the road for a multi-city tour in support of their latest studio album, New Ammo, an infectious 13-track collection, and Denson's debut release on Slightly Stoopid's record label, Stoopid Records. Alongside Denson originals like the title track and "Everybody Knows That," which have become fan favorites from his live sets, KDTU offers up searing versions of "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes, "Hang Me Up To Dry" by Cold War Kids and "Sure Shot" by The Beastie Boys. The first single "My Baby," features Nicki Bluhm on vocals.
In Denson's own words: "We've finally figured out how to capture in the studio what the Tiny Universe does live. We move around a lot musically, but this record reflects who we are as a band and where we're headed with our music."
ABOUT BROOKLYN BOWL: Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is the brand's third location. With three levels spanning over 80,000 square feet, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is one of the largest performance venues in America and is described by People Magazine as being "on the fast path to being Vegas'über cool place." Located inside The LINQ, the open-air district in the center of the Las Vegas Strip, the multi-dimensional space boasts 32 lanes of bowling, five on-site bars and rockin' comfort food by the world-renowned Bromberg Brothers' Blue Ribbon Restaurants, including their iconic Fried Chicken celebrated on Food Network's "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." On any given night, more than 2,000 concertgoers can enjoy live music programming from the general admission area, the luxurious bowlers' lounges adjacent to the lanes, or the private lounge boxes overlooking it all. Since opening in March 2014, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas has seen notable performances by Elvis Costello & The Roots, Jane's Addiction, Phil Lesh & Friends, Primus, O.A.R. and Steve Winwood.
The original location opened in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2009 in the former Hecla Iron Works building (built in 1882) and was the first L.E.E.D. certified bowling alley in the world. Brooklyn Bowl New York has hosted countless notable performances, including shows by Kanye West, Adele, Paul Simon, Moby and Guns N'Roses and has been named Zagat's "Best Music Venue - New York City" for three consecutive years (as well as "Best Bowling Alley" and "Best Brooklyn Venue") and one of the best clubs in America by Rolling Stone. Eater described their menu as "epic," while The New Yorker hailed the club's unprecedented combination of top-flight music, beer, bowling, and food as "like nailing a spare on a four-ten split." The second Brooklyn Bowl location opened in January 2014 at the O2 in London, and was hailed by the London Evening Standard as a "...wonderland of food, drink, music and pins".
