Cory Henry, MonoNeon, Scott Metzger, Nikki Glaspie, Skerik Get Funky On Stevie Wonder Cover At Brooklyn Comes Alive [Pro-Shot Video]

first_imgOn September 28th, 2018, Brooklyn Comes Alive returned to three fan-favorite venues in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood for a marathon day of music jam-packed with one-time-only collaborations from more than 50 of the most talented artists on the road today.One of the day’s most exciting mix-and-match sets was the debut of a super-funky quintet comprised of Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy, Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles), Nikki Glaspie (The Nth Power), Scott Metzger (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Wolf!), MonoNeon (Prince, Ghost-Note), and Skerik at Brooklyn Bowl.Though this crew had never before played together, the collective talent of these musicians jumped off the lineup page from the moment it was announced, making it an early favorite to be one of the day’s best sets. Unsurprisingly, the performance did not disappoint, as Cory Henry, Nikki Glaspie, Scott Metzger, MonoNeon, and Skerik delivered a jaw-dropping display of musicianship for the gathered crowd.Take, for example, their expertly extended rendition of Stevie Wonder classic “Living For The City”. The 15-minute jam saw each of the band’s skilled members take a chance to shine on their respective instruments, with Henry charismatically filling Stevie’s bandleader/vocalist role from behind his keyboard rig. Listening to this group put a new spin on this beloved classic, you’d think they’d been playing it together for years. It makes the fact that several of them met just minutes before the set all the more mind-blowing.Thankfully, we have professionally shot, multi-cam footage of the song, so we can relive it over and over again.
