Karl Denson's Tiny Universe presents: A Ray Charles Boogaloo Dance Party

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe

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 own 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. In Fall 2013, Karl and the Tiny Universe get back to it heading out on a 39‐date U.S. tour that will debut material from a forthcoming new album due in early 2014 on Stoopid
Records. Additionally, KDTU will hook up with looping master Zach Deputy and the Cosmic Horns on the West Coast portion of the run for a string of shows creating a “Ray Charles Boogaloo Dance Party.” A handful of festival dates will also be mixed into the tour, including stops at Telluride Blues and Brews, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Mustang
Music Festival, as well as two sets at Bear Creek Music Festival. On New Year's Eve, KDTU will ring in 2014 with the city of Chicago at Park West.

Special Guest Zach Deputy

On his upcoming release Another Day (Eusonia Records, 2011), Zach Deputy demonstrates his extraordinary ability to
perform and record in multiple contexts. He conveys the sensibilities of a mature singer/songwriter and demonstrates that
he is not merely a “looper”1
with crazy chops, serious pipes and colorful outfits. Another Day offers another look at Zach
Deputy and seeks to help him cross over into other audiences. Rich with ballads and mid-tempo songs, the music on this
recording is best described as soulful rhythm and blues, with flavors of Al Green, Taj Mahal and Stevie Wonder emerging
in the swells, changes and modulations of the music, in the voice and even in the lyrical content. The record will appeal to
fans of contemporary artists like Jack Johnson and Amos Lee, but the origins of the style and feel remain classic.
