For Soulive’s upcoming shows at Tribeca Rock Club in New York City on July 29, 30 and 31, DiscLive and Pirate Entertainment will be on-site to document the band’s blistering live performances in this intimate setting. DiscLive, a wholly owned subsidiary of Immediatek (OTCBB: ITEK), and Pirate will use state-of-the-art, recording technology to create double-live CDs available for sale shortly after each show.
Titled Live in New York City, each night of Soulive’s New York performance will result in a new volume in the live series. The recordings and the concerts will help promote the independent non-profit organization Music for America.
Music for America is working to get young voters involved in the political process – for the 2004 elections and beyond. Through live concerts and an interactive website, they are connecting culture and politics, exposing political hypocrisies, and igniting a grassroots movement. Soulive’s live series will help support this cause. Music for America will also be at the shows, signing up those who are not yet registered to vote. Check them out at musicforamerica.com.
“Immediatek, DiscLive and Pirate are innovative companies whose management teams share an understanding of artists that allows musicians to connect more closely with their fans. Soulive is all about getting music to their fans in new and innovative ways,” says Soulive Manager Jeff Krasno.
Live in NYC: Volume 1, 2 & 3 marks Soulive’s first release since the jazz hipsters completed their three album commitment to Blue Note Records, and it marks the band’s first ever live, full-performance recordings. Soulive’s gritty new jazz and funk sounds have been turning heads and shaking hips since the band first broke onto the scene in 1999. This New York City run finds Soulive, who has shared the stage with bands such as The Rolling Stones and the Dave Matthews Band, fresh off recent performances at the renowned Bonnaroo and Glastonbury music festivals. For this upcoming live recording series, Soulive has invited very special guests to be announced. The band will also perform exciting new material, not yet recorded, including some amazing renditions of clever, cover songs.
Each volume in the series will be run in limited editions and will be available only at disclive.com, accessed also through piratebootlegs.com and soulive.com. Fans will be able to pre-order the series beginning July 16, 2004, as well as order the recordings at each of the shows themselves. Further downloading options beyond the initial NetBurn offering will be made available through select e-tailers. Details will be announced soon.
