G. Love & Special Sauce
[FUNK] G. Love & Special Sauce have been making Western New York a habit for years now and it looks like 2019 is no exception. Nearly a year to the day from their visit to the Seneca Niagara Casino, the trio — originally from Philly — is back at the Tralf Music Hall on Wednesday, January 23. For the uninitiated, it’s a musical melting pot that evolved in the early 90’s as a hip hop splinter, incorporating elements of alt-rock and blues into the mix. Garrett “G. Love” Dulton and co. have managed to sustain a heavy touring schedule for 25 years now, and it’s their quarter century anniversary that’s the impetus for this string of dates. There’s a “Pop-off” package available for eager fans, which includes sitting in at the soundcheck where a Q and A will also happen, early venue entry, a group photo and a limited edition poster. That’s $99, but regular GA tickets are $35. Hawaiian soul mavens Ron Artis II & The Truth will open and are not to be missed. Doors are at 7pm, earlier for “Pop-off” ticket purchasers, who’ll receive further instructions via email.
