Drummer Alan Evans (pictured) of the funk/jazz group Soulive is bringing his new trio to St. Louis to perform at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 5 at the Old Rock House.
Evans will be touring this spring in support of the release of his album Drop Hop, which, much like Soulive, incorporates the influence of Booker T. and the MGs, the Meters, and the organ-driven soul/jazz groups of the 1960s and '70s. The record features Evans on drums, organist Beau Sasser and guitarist Danny Meyer, with Evans also contributing vocals, bass and rhythm guitar to a few tracks.
Tickets for the Alan Evans Trio at the Old Rock House are $10 in advance, $12 day or show, and are on sale now via Metrotix.
