Bowlive is Back!


Bowlive is back, people! We would like to take a moment to officially announce the return of Bowlive - our 8-night residency at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY - this June 7-10 and 14-17.

As usual, we'll be announcing numerous special guests who will join us on stage throughout the run, so keep an eye on Tickets for the entire run go on sale this Friday, March 3.

Aud Lang Syne: Eric Krasno



In 2017 Eric Krasno will return with new albums from Soulive and the Eric Krasno Band. He will also tour with both groups.

What will you remember most about 2016?
Unfortunately, 2016 will be remembered as the year we lost many great musicians & entertainers. From David Bowie, Leon Russell and George Martin to Muhammed Ali…we lost a lot of greats.

Which album or albums have you listened to most this past year?
I listened to Andy Shauf’s new album The Party a ton this year. I loved the production and feeling of this record. It’s a concept album that tells the story of a night at a party through eyes of a group of people. It made me listen all the way through every time. I love albums like that.

What emerging artists should we watch out for in 2017?
Marcus King is absolutely killing it right now. An amazing singer and ripping guitar player…his band is on fire too.

Any big plans in the works for 2017?
In 2017 I will finish my new solo album (the follow-up to Blood from a Stone ) and continue to tour with Eric Krasno Band. We also have a new Soulive album in the works (produced by Pretty Lights) and will do our Bowlive run again in June. I will also be doing some production and writing work with a few other artists in the studio. Looking forward to year full of new music.

These Are the Three Songs Eric Krasno Can't Get Out of His Head

Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno decided to try something different on his new solo album, “Blood From a Stone”: lead vocals. You can check out his voice Sunday when he plays the Hamilton. We asked Krasno to tell us about the first three songs that popped into his head.


‘Early to the Party’ - Andy Shauf
Krasno is “obsessed” with the Canadian singer’s spacey folk tune. “I love the vibe and the sound of his album — it’s so intimate, there’s so much space in it,” he says. “It just sounds really different and new to me.”

‘Leave a Little’ - Eric Krasno
This is the first song Krasno has written for an upcoming concept album about the residents of a Brooklyn brownstone. It follows a woman in her early 20s having a rough night out. “There’s a lot of vocal psychedelia,” Krasno says. “This album is kind of my ‘Electric Ladyland.’ ”


‘Brown-Eyed Women’ - Grateful Dead
Krasno is considering covering this country-rock sing-along from the Dead’s classic live album “Europe ’72” at his shows. “It takes you into an interesting world that I know nothing about,” he says. “Some of it, I don’t even know what it means.”
