Soulive

Brothers Alan and Neal Evans, on drums and Hammond B-3 organ, respectively, form two-thirds of the soul/groove trio Soulive. Rounding out the group is Eric Krasno on guitar. The band was formed in the late '90s when all three members were under 25. However, each already had a substantial background in the jam band scene. Alan and Neal are former members of Moon Boot Lover, and Alan also played with the Greyboy Allstars. Krasno founded the super-funky Lettuce, a wildly popular Boston-based band.

Though originally from Vermont, Soulive is essentially Boston-based as well. The band toured with and opened for a number of notables (including John Scofield, Maceo Parker, Los Lobos, Derek Trucks, and Robben Ford) before headlining their own shows and releasing their introductory EP, Get Down, in 1999. Their debut full-length release, Turn It Out, followed the next year. Doin' Something, featuring John Scofield, was issued in March 2001.

Soulive is all about danceable, organ-driven instrumental groove-jazz. Their success is a result of fusing the soul-jazz of the past with a modern hip-hop feel. Krasno's spidery yet very direct guitar lines recall Grant Green. The rhythmic concepts employed date back to those learned from artists such as James Brown, Stevie Wonder, and Sly Stone.

Their first release was a self-pressed EP entitled Get Down! The band's full-length debut, Turn It Out (featuring John Scofield), was released on the Velour label in 2000. That release generated such a buzz that they were promptly picked up by Blue Note, which released Doin' Something in early 2001. About a year later, Next was released, followed by Soulive in 2003. Breakout appeared from Concord in 2005, while a series of individual concerts were made available on Instant Live Records in 2004 and 2006, followed by No Place Like Soul on Stax in 2007. In 2009, the band marked its tenth anniversary with the release of the studio effort Up Here. A year later, they delivered a Beatles covers album, Rubber Soulive. In 2012, Soulive paid tribute to soul-jazz guitarist Melvin Sparks with the album Spark! ~ Ann Wickstrom

Soulive is one of the Best and my Favorite Funky Jazz Fusion Bands for many many years. I really don't think they get the attention that they deserve and have worked hard for.
@Soulive - keep rockin the stages you guys play on as you do have many Diehard fans like myself. I'll catch you the next time you are in the Baltimore Washington DC area!

"Incredible" doesn't do them justice. Unbelievable groove producing team, and throw in Nigel Hall (shzit!!!!). Saw them in Baltimore live at the 8X10 and I'm all in.

Soulive is off the chain and have been for some time now. For all of you who have seen then live your missing out on a great show. Love the sound this band brings, soul and jazz great in one place great stuff.

Neal Evans is a funk machine! Still don't understand how a dude can have that kind of feel on the left hand bass while ripping bad solos with the right hand on the hammond. Not that the rest of the band isn't amazing, but Neal Evans is just sickening.
