Robert Randolph & Karl Denson Description

Robert Randolph

Don't miss Robert Randolph and Karl Denson perform live on New Year's at Park West in Chicago!

Pedal steel guitar player Robert Randolph is best-known for leading the American funk and soul band Robert Randolph and the Family Band, though he also regularly performs solo.

Randolph learned to play the steel guitar at his church in New Jersey, and previously worked with jazz organist John Medeski in 2001 before fronting the Family Band.

Robert Randolph & the Family Band’s first album, Live at the Wetlands, debuted in 2002, but it was their follow-up studio album Unclassified (2003) that attracted the attention of famed guitarist Eric Clapton, who invited them to tour with him as a supporting act and who also performed on their 2006 album Colorblind.

The track "Ain't Nothing Wrong With That" on Colorblind was subsequently featured on several NBC commercials, as well as in a promo for the Discovery Channel. The song “The Thrill of It” was also featured prominently on ABC during the network’s college football coverage.

Randolph is known for his high energy when he performs, often putting aside his instrument to dance or choreograph the crowd to dance with him.

Other popular songs include "Deliver Me," "Love is the Only Way" (with Dave Matthews), “Nobody,” and “Run for Your Life." 

San Diego-born Karl Denson is a saxophonist, flutist, and singer known for his jazz and funk styling, collaborations with Lenny Kravitz, and for co-founding the funk band The Greyboy Allstars in the early 90s.

He is also the frontman for Karl Denson's Tiny Universe and the Karl Denson Trio.

He has been involved with a number of works, including Kravitz’ Let Love Rule and Mamma Said albums, The Greyboy’s West Coast Boogaloo and A Town Called Earth, and the solo releases Blackened Red Snapper and Chunky Pecan Pie.

Albums put out by Karl Denson's Tiny Universe and the Karl Denson Trio include Once You’re There (2006), Lunar Orbit (2007), and Brother's Keeper in 2009.
