Sonny Knight & The Lakers
The Rhythm Revue with Felix Hernandez
For Sonny Knight and the Lakers, last year was equal parts unexpected and deserved. The creation of their debut album, I’m Still Here, nearly 50 years after a young Sonny recorded his first single, began a tidal wave of accomplishments that includes a successful international tour, critical attention from NPR’s World Café and WBEZ’s Sound Opinions, and plenty of love from their hometown of Minneapolis. These hard-soul powerhouses have quickly gained ground in their hometown, topping the Minneapolis Star Tribune poll “Twin Cities Critic’s Tally” as the best live act of 2014 due to their “high-energy…funk-blasting” shows. Soul connoisseurs to novice music listeners alike can find common ground in Sonny Knight and the Lakers’ irrefutable showmanship and exuberance on stage.
Felix Hernandez brought his funky dance party, The Rhythm Revue, to BRIC House last year, and after celebrating 23 years of sold-out shows at the now-closed Roseland Ballroom. Hernandez returns to Brooklyn with the New York institution to kick off the evening.
