Alan Evans Trio

by Metroland Staff on April 17, 2013



For nearly two decades, Alan Evans has played drums in soul-jazz organ trio Soulive. Now he’s branched out for a solo project called the Alan Evans Trio. This time, Evans has enlisted Danny Mayer from On the Spot Trio for guitar and organist Beau Sasser from Melvin Sparks and Akashic Record. The group’s sound is funky with heavy rhythms and bluesy solos, all driven by a hard grooving sound. These three have become well-known for onstage chemistry and energy, which should be on display at Red Square. (April 19, 8 PM, $15, 388 Broadway, Albany, 465-0444)
