Alan Evans– the co-founder, writer and drummer of Soulive– proudly presents his newest creation: the Alan Evans Trio. With Beau Sasser on B-3 and Danny Mayer on guitar, it is no surprise that AE3’s sound proves hard-driving and groovy with deep, funky melodies and powerful, rhythmic counter-play. Mention the name Alan Evans to a room full of music lovers, and you will get a consensus nod to one of the most celebrated and tenacious drummers in the jazz, funk, and soul scene. Alan has literally been playing drums since the age of two, and like all great musicians, he is constantly writing and playing music– pushing the boundaries above and beyond “industry standard” and creating the rules as he goes along, making art in its purest form… music that pleases him and his fans. “I’ve known for a long time what my purpose is, and I love to make people happy with the music I create,” says Alan about his chosen career path.
