We are extremely pleased to announce that Pandora, with the help of Next Big Sound’s analytics, has secured Soulive to perform at the ISMIR Banquet at Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday, August 10.  In recent years, Brooklyn Bowl has become one of the most renowned venues in the New York music scene and is therefore an outstanding location to experience an authentic, local music performance. We collectively sought to select an artist that is representative of the rich history of music (especially jazz) in New York.  The Brooklyn-based Soulive draws from this history in creating their own high-energy jazz/funk sound.  We are extremely pleased to have them at ISMIR and we hope that you will enjoy the show!
