In surprising news this week, it was announced that The Word will be reuniting for the first time since 2012 for a two night run in February. The Word is of course made up of John Medeski, Robert Randolph, Chris Chew, and Luther and Cody Dickinson. Unfortunately Chris will not be appearing at these two shows.
The Word’s music melds together gospel, blues, funk, and rock flawlessly together for a special evening of music you can only hear when these guys play. On February 11 the band will play at The Brooklyn Bowl and follow it up the next night at The Capitol Theatre. The Capitol Theatre show has an extra treat for everyone, as Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno will be joining the festivities. Tickets go on sale for The Brooklyn Bowl show on Saturday January 18 at noon, while The Capitol Theatre show will go on sale on Friday January 17 at noon. Both of these shows are the only announced dates for the supergroup and are sure to sell out quickly, so make sure to grab your tickets.
