BATTLE TAPES
THURSDAY, MARCH 30 AT 8:30 P.M.

 

Los Angeles based electronic rock band Battle Tapes will bring their groovy electro-rock to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Thursday, March 30 at 8:30 p.m.

 

Battle Tapes’ self-described sound is “If Trent Reznor and Daft Punk went on a cocaine-fueled party binge in Los Angeles, but in the best way possible.” The band will play hits like “Valkyrie” and “Feel the Same,” off their newest album “Polygon.” Fitness and BEGINNERS will open.

 

Doors for The Battle Tapes at The Bowl open at 7:30 p.m. This show is for ages 18 and up. Tickets start at $10 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale to the public Saturday, Feb. 25 at 10 a.m. at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2lrNVnA.

 

 

KATCHAFIRE
THURSDAY, APRIL 6 AT 9 P.M.

 

New Zealand global reggae phenomenon Katchafire is bringing their feel good vibes to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Thursday, April 6 at 9 p.m.

 

With four highly successful albums, multiple awards and platinum sales under their belt, this authentic reggae band’s recipe for success involves mashing modern dancehall with R&B while staying true to the foundation of classic roots reggae. The eight-piece collective has become a staple of the Californian and Pacific Roots scenes, and they’ve shared the stage with Damien Marley, Steel Pulse, UB40, as well as accepted invitations to world-renowned festivals like Glastonbury.

 

The band’s only rule? Enjoy the music.

 

Doors for Katchafire at The Bowl open at 8 p.m. This show is for ages 18 and up. Tickets start at $25 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale to the public Friday, Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2l4MRoC.

 

 

TOOTS & THE MAYTALS
SATURDAY, APRIL 15 AT 9 P.M.

 

Longtime Jamaican reggae staple Toots Hibbert is bringing his band The Maytals to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Saturday, April 15 at 9 p.m.

 

Jamaican-born Hibbert began singing in his church choir at seven years old, and eventually left for Kingston to form the original Maytals in 1962. “Hallejulah,” his debut release, introduced Jamaicans to his original style: Jamaican rhythms mixed with vocal influences from gospel music.

 

Calling Toots & The Maytals the founding family of reggae (or, like the name of their 1998 GRAMMY-nominated album, SKAFATHER) may be an understatement, as The Maytals’ 1972 single “Do the Reggay” was the first published instance of the word. The group holds the record for the largest amount of number one hits in Jamaica, clocking in at 31.

 

Doors for Toots & The Maytals at The Bowl open at 8 p.m. This show is for ages 18 and up. Tickets start at $30 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale to the public Friday, Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2m9dVnG.

 

 

SOMO: THE ANSWERS TOUR
THURSDAY, JUNE 8 AT 8 P.M.

 

Soulful R&B sensation SoMo will charm the audience in his return to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Thursday, June 8 at 8 p.m.

 

Then unsigned to a record label, SoMo, also known as Joseph Somers-Morales, achieved independent fame relatively quickly, thanks to the attention his YouTube covers received and his 2012 hit “Ride” off his first mixtape. His first headlining tour sold out, causing Republic Records to offer him a deal in 2013.

 

SoMo has since worked tirelessly, amassing nearly 225 million YouTube views, and collaborating with artists such as Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, Hoodie Allen, and Babyface. His 2015 single “Hide & Freak” featuring Trey Songz debuted at number two on iTunes’ Top R&B/Soul Albums chart and launched his 2015 36-city American tour “The Fallin’ Up Tour.” Concertgoers will undoubtedly be privy to a sneak peak of some of the songs off his not-yet-released second full-length album.

 

Doors for SoMo at The Bowl open at 7 p.m. This show is for all ages. Tickets start at $20 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale to the public Friday, Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2ls5T9L.

THE BLACK SEEDS
SATURDAY, JUNE 24 AT 8 P.M.

 

One of New Zealand’s finest island reggae bands, The Black Seeds, will sail into Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Saturday, June 24 at 8 p.m.

 

The Black Seeds have been filling dance floors across the globe for over a decade with their dynamic sound that layers funk, soul, and Afrobeat over traditional reggae foundations. The eight-member configuration includes vocals, guitar, saxophone, trumpet, bass, drums, bongos, keyboard, and wood block.

 

Already popular in New Zealand, Australia, and southeast Asia, the band was introduced to the rest of the world through their third album “Into the Dojo” in 2007. The cult classic TV series “Breaking Bad” earned the band international fans when it played their rock steady-influenced song “One by One” in a Season Two episode.

 

Clash Music has called them “one of the best live reggae acts on the planet,” and in 2012, Rolling Stone Magazine called them “the best reggae band in the world right now.”

 

Doors for The Black Seeds at The Bowl open at 6 p.m. This show is for ages 18 and up. Tickets start at $12 (plus applicable service fees) and are currently on sale to the public at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2l4XKa3.

 

STREETLIGHT MANIFESTO – THE SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN TOUR 2017
SUNDAY, JUNE 25 AT 8 P.M.

 

New Jersey-based ska band Streetlight Manifesto is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their 2007 release “Somewhere in Between” at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Sunday, June 25 at 8 p.m. The band will perform the iconic album start to finish, along with other favorites.

 

Streetlight Manifesto is the ska band for even non-ska fans. Seven members came together to form one band with one unique and unmistakable voice, touting latin, klezmer, folk, funk, jazz and classical influences.

 

The band was originally supposed to make one album and disappear, but three albums and countless worldwide tours later, the guys continue to give their all to sold-out crowds while redefining the genre of ska.

 

Doors for Streetlight Manifesto at The Bowl open at 7 p.m. This show is for ages 18 and up. Tickets start at $27.50 (plus applicable service fees) and are currently on sale to the public at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2Mls6bNK.
