Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is back in action with an extensive tour this Winter. The run of shows—being dubbed “Running With The Diesel”—will give fans from the Southeast, Midwest and West Coast the chance to experience what is highly regarded as one of the best live bands on the planet. Karl, who now serves as the saxophonist in The Rolling Stones, is fresh off a tour with the legendary rock band that included the highest grossing concert festival of all time, Desert Trip. With KDTU, he’ll be showcasing material from his forthcoming studio album, due in early 2017, as well as previous acclaimed KDTU recordings like ‘New Ammo’ and ’The Bridge.’ Audiences can also expect a handful of KDTU’s super-charged covers by the likes of Prince, The White Stripes and Beastie Boys. Special guests on select dates will include Jimmy Herring of Widespread Panic, Austin-based and Latin-funk purveyors, Brownout. The current KDTU touring lineup is comprised of Richmond guitarist DJ Williams, Soulive drummer Alan Evans, Greyboy Allstars bassist Chris Stillwell, Crush Effects keyboardist David Veith, Seattle trumpeter Chris Littlefield and ace slide and lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman.

The Main Squeeze
Seamlessly blending Funk, Soul, and Rock n’ Roll, The Main Squeeze promises to keep your body moving with their infectious feel-good musical gumbo.

The energetic five-piece found its roots in Bloomington Indiana’s surprisingly vibrant live music scene, and they have been leaving audiences “Freshly Squozen” since 2010.

Their ability to fluidly blend and bend genres is unparalleled, and creates for an unforgettable live experience. Every performance is different from the last, showcasing each member’s virtuosic talent with soulful vocals, intricate jams, tight grooves and powerful solos.

Since their inception, The Main Squeeze has amassed a remarkably loyal and rapidly growing national fan base. They’ve graced the stages at some of the country’s biggest festivals, including: Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Phases of the Moon and Gathering of The Vibes. In addition, they put their stamp on the Rolling Stone Super Bowl XLVI Pre-Party and dazzled music lovers at the International Battle of the Bands in Macau. Having shared the stage with artists like The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, The Meters, Aloe Blacc and Trombone Shorty, The Main Squeeze continues to catch the ear of industry giants.
