Kamani On Tour

The Nth Power drummer Nikki Glaspie and keyboardist/vocalist Nigel Hall, who currently plays with Lettuce, have joined forces with guitarist Kat Dyson (Prince) and bassist Matt Lapham (Roosevelt Collier Trio) for a new project named KAMANI. The new quartet will strut their stuff on a forthcoming fall tour of socially-distant performances scheduled for next month.

The week-long run of shows will take the new band across the southeast U.S. beginning with a show at the Charleston Pour House in Charleston, SC on November 10th. The tour will continue with performances at the 1904 Music Hall in Jacksonville, FL (11/11); Guanabanas in Jupiter, FL (11/12); The New Standard in Winter Park, FL (11/13); Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton, FL (11/14); and wraps with a show at Dunedin Brewery in Dunedin, FL (11/15)–which is already sold out. Tickets are available via the individual venue websites.
