For nearly three decades, legendary saxophonist Karl Denson has been getting crowds around the world out on the dance floor. Approaching iconic status, Denson has moved bodies and minds dating back to his earliest years with Lenny Kravitz’s band to his ongoing tenue as a founding member of the Gr...eyboy Allstars.
All of these projects were simply a precedent to his own, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. Touring relentlessly for the past 15 years and leaving a massive audience in his wake, fans know that when KDTU is in town a dance party will ensue. In fall 2013, Karl Denson and the Tiny Universe will return to touring on a 30-date U.S. tour that will debut material from a forthcoming new album due in early 2014 on Stoopid Records.

Additionally, KDTU will team up with looping master Zach Deputy and the Cosmic Horns on the West Coast portion of the run for a string of shows creating a “Ray Charly Boogaloo Dance Party”. A handful of festival dates will also be mixed into the tour, including stops at Telluride Blues and Brews, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Mustang Musical Festival, and Bear Creek Music Festival.



Karl Denson's Tiny Universe is gearing up for its biggest year yet in 2019. In February, the band releases its first new studio album in over five years entitled 'Gnomes & Badgers.’ Highly regarded as one of the best live acts on the planet, the new recording distills the sweeping stylistic range of KDTU's concert performances into its own authentic sound. Masterfully incorporating elements of vintage rock, old school soul and classic funk, the inimitable saxophonist/flutist/vocalist Karl Denson and his long-standing six piece unit that includes guitarist DJ Williams, drummer Zak Najor, bassist Chris Stillwell, keyboardist David Veith, trumpeter Chris Littlefield and slide/lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman, have delivered what is undoubtedly their strongest work yet. As always, KDTU will hit the road hard with plans to visit all corners of the U.S. on a national tour supporting ‘Gnomes & Badgers.’ Along with KDTU, Denson—who the Austin Chronicle declared "embodies modern honk”—currently serves as the touring saxophonist with The Rolling Stones, while continuing to hold down his role as a founding member of the seminal funk band, The Greyboy Allstars.
