"Alan Evans Trio, featuring soul and jazz veteran Soulive's founding member Alan Evans, kicks off their US Drop & Run tour beginning August 5, 2012, with over 30 stops across the country including Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Brooklyn and more; ending in Florida for Bear Creek Festival.
Alan Evans Trio recently released their new album Drop Hop (Royal Family Records), now available digitally and on vinyl around the globe, and in select retail outlets. As Alan Evans Trio, members Danny Mayer (On the Spot Trio) on guitar, and Beau Sasser (Melvin Sparks Band, Akashic Record) on organ, together with Alan Evans, share an energetic on-stage chemistry, a love for album recording, and for taking their music out on the road.
"I'm really happy that I've been able to turn my connections with Beau and Danny into fully realized dream. For awhile, I was contemplating starting a new band to do something different. I had been playing with Beau regularly at Bishop's Lounge, a local spot in Northampton, MA, and had also just worked with Danny on his last album with OTS. This is when it all started to come together for me. Danny was straight killin it, playing guitar exactly the way I would. I knew that Danny and Beau together would be scary," says Alan about how AE3 started."
