$15 - $50 ($15 UCLA Students)
Robert Randolph — the unstoppable pedal-steel guitar player known for an effortless mix of blues, gospel and funk — presents a new project with The Slide Brothers, the legendary masters who first inspired Randolph’s commitment to “Sacred Steel.” This sub-genre was born when steel guitars were brought to the House of God Church during the ’40s to replace the traditional organ. He’s bringing the progenitors of the form — Calvin Cooke, Aubrey Ghent, Chuck and Darick Campbell — center stage for an evening of infectious, uplifting music.

Stream tracks from their forthcoming release here.

Opening the concert is the Otis Taylor Band. Taylor is a brilliant blues songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who started in music in the late ’60s and ’70s, giving it up for a while to become an antiques dealer.

He’s been back in music now for over a decade creating some of the most powerful, hypnotic blues around.

Stream tracks from his brand-new record, My World Is Gone.
