    "These guys just and simply, cool. Seriously, even the picture radiates that certain aura of funky smooth-as-ice jazz fusion - a sound unique to Soulive. I highly recommend seeing them at a smaller and more personal venue where you can actually notice the hilariously soulful faces of Eric Krasno, the stray furls of Alan Evan's massive afro, and the amazing synchronicity of Neal Evan's hands (as he simultaneously plays two keyboards among his staggered set of at least three and sometimes four). And though bands playing covers may not be your cup of tea, Soulive covers are a statement in themselves. This is mainly a testament to 'Rubber Soulive' a full album instrumental cover of The Beatles' Rubber Soul album - which we should all be familiar with. Additionally, you may even end up hearing bits of masterful songs by Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd within the jazzy groove slowly established throughout the show. However, all this is not to say that their own music is a lackey for these aforementioned big names. In fact, it would seem it is the other way around. People totally moving to original Soulive sound are then noticeably surprised to hear instrumentalized snippets of this universally understood music - delivering an additional bit of pleasant spice to the atmosphere. I give Soulive my Michelin star in musical entertainment, and wish all jazz and funk enthusiasts luck in securing that front row seat - because the experience is truly meant to be soulfully live as the name would suggest.
