Combining Vintage Rock and Classic Funk, Karl Denson Is Ready to Wow You

Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe has geared up for its biggest year yet! In February, the band released its first new studio album in over five years entitled ‘Gnomes & Badgers.’ Highly regarded as one of the best live acts on the planet, the new recording distills the sweeping stylistic range of KDTU’s concert performances into its own authentic sound.

Masterfully incorporating elements of vintage rock, old school soul and classic funk, the inimitable saxophonist/flutist/vocalist Karl Denson and his long-standing six-piece unit that includes guitarist DJ Williams, drummer Zak Najor, bassist Chris Stillwell, keyboardist David Veith, trumpeter Chris Littlefield and slide/lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman, have delivered what is undoubtedly their strongest work yet.

As always, KDTU will hit the road hard with plans to visit all corners of the U.S. on a national tour supporting ‘Gnomes & Badgers.’ Along with KDTU, Denson—who the Austin Chronicle declared “embodies modern honk”—currently serves as the touring saxophonist with The Rolling Stones, while continuing to hold down his role as a founding member of the seminal funk band, The Greyboy Allstars.

The tour will make a stop at Orpheum Theater on Friday, May 3rd. Tickets are $35 plus applicable fees and can be purchased online at https://www1.ticketmaster.com. More than a stunning historical structure, The Orpheum brings an entirely new tier of entertainment venue to New Orleans. We hope that you join us for KDTU’s concert!
