Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is back in action with the “Running With The Diesel” Tour giving fans what is highly regarded as one of the best live bands on the planet. Karl, who now serves as saxophonist in The Rolling Stones, is fresh off a tour with the legendary rock band that included the highest grossing concert festival of all time, Desert Trip in Indio, CA.

KDTU will be showcasing material from their forthcoming studio album, due in early 2017, as well as previous KDTU recordings like ‘New Ammo’ and ‘Brother’s Keeper.’ Audiences can also expect a handful of KDTU’s super-charged covers by the likes of Prince, The White Stripes and Beastie Boys. Special guests on select dates will include Jimmy Herring of Widespread Panic who will play as part of the band in Athens, Asheville, Charlotte and Atlanta and Austin-based, Latin-funk purveyors, Brownout who will open shows in Kalamazoo, Chicago and St. Louis.

The current KDTU touring lineup is comprised of Richmond guitarist DJ Williams, Soulive drummer Alan Evans, The Greyboy Allstars’ bassist Chris Stillwell, Crush Effects’ keyboardist David Veith, Seattle trumpeter Chris Littlefield and ace slide and lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman.

Swift Technique, Philadelphia’s fiery funk extravaganza, enters 2016 after completing their most successful year to date. Most recently, the band has held several high profile support slots, including sharing the stage with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Motet, Fishbone, The Main Squeeze, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, JoJo Mayer, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Sophistafunk. While introducing the powerhouse lead vocal tandem of Chelsea ViaCava & Nik Greeley, the band released two new singles, “Dress Shoes” & “Jay’s the Name” to critical acclaim. 2015 saw the debut of Swift Technique’s “Ultimate Funk Throwdown: Prince Vs. Morris Day”, which will continue to be performed on select dates throughout the country. With a new EP release slated for Summer 2016, Swift Technique plans to debut a large portion of new material on March 5th at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia.

After forming in 2007, Swift Technique has relentlessly toured, performed and recorded throughout the US. The extremely positive and contagious chemistry shared by the band has always been translated in the live setting. With the 2013 release of, “you boys be aight”, Swift Technique established themselves as an up and coming force in the recording industry. Although the group draws from many influences ranging Funk & Soul to Hip-Hop & Rock, their genre is uniquely Philadelphia.
