Singer and saxophonist Karl Denson fronts the Tiny Universe as if he's preaching the gospel. His energy and spirit are contagious while his songwriting serves a larger message of fellowship—across generations, genders, religions and cultures. Not surprisingly, he's none too pleased with the current state of political discourse. Thus the reason why KDTU's new album, Gnomes & Badgers, is Denson's hard-grooving answer to these tragically divisive times.

Highly regarded as one of the best live acts on the planet, KDTU distills the sweeping stylistic range of its concert performances into their own authentic sound featuring Denson and his long-standing seven-piece unit. Along with KDTU, Denson 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.

Shake Alert, Santa Fe's hardest-working funk band, is a happy explosion of musical energy and invention that draws from the diverse experiences of its members. In other bands, they've played everything from hip-hop and soul to authentic African and Brazilian street music to brainy avant-garde jazz.  Threads of Afrobeat, hip-hop, rock, fusion and good old funk all show up in Shake Alert's all-original, all homegrown music, but the primary directive is to throw down some filthy, unfiltered funk and get you up off your butt and onto the dance floor!
