Soulive Family Ball October 15, 2011 Terminal 5 NYC

Soulive Family Ball
Overall, this was a pretty solid event.  I knew there would be a few bands, but I didnt realize it would be a festival/celebration.  I am not usually a fan of festivals where you have 6 bands playing and only get to see one you actually like (for 45 mins.)  This basically fell into that category, but I did enjoy Lettuce as well.  They were probably even more enjoyable than Soulive.  They had a funkier thing going, and a real energy to them.  I felt the dance moves whip out a little more with them (maybe I was in a better spot on the floor, but they knew how to keep us moving.)

This was my first time seeing both bands and I would probably go again.  I was happy to only pay $30 for a ticket and they fall right into that price range.  Phish can get up to $80 from me, but these bands are $35 tops.  They are fun and have some talent, but not totally my type.  If anything, I was a huge fan of the keyboard player, and hope he continues to jam.
