first_imgLoad remaining images Last night’s All-Star Prince tribute was wildly successful in providing a dance party to be remembered for the ages. The night opened with DJ Logic, who satisfied all the funk souls with deep tracks and smooth grooves before the All-Stars hit the stage. Running through the classics, “Raspberry Beret,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and digging deep into “Lolita,” “Nothing Compares 2 You,” Brooklyn’s The Hall at MP was blasted with never-ending Prince love. The All-Star Prince band came together in a heroic light, with Aron Magner (The Disco Biscuits), Marcus Rezak (Stratosphere All-Stars), Mike Greenfield (Lotus), and Louis Cato (Late Show With Stephen Colbert) holding ground. The horn section featured a powerful trio, with James Casey (Trey Anastasio Band) on saxophone, Maurice “Mobetta” Brown (Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Roots, Wyclef Jean & more) on trumpet, and Ian Gray (Swift Technique) on trombone. Con Brio’s Ziek McCarter, Mayteana Morales of The Pimps of Joytime, Hayley Jane of Hayley Jane and the Primates, and Nephrok of the Nephrok All-Stars shared earth-shattering vocals throughout the night, turning the room purple with a sense of wonderment. The band was hot, to say the very least.In an attempt to do justice to the eternal greatness of Prince, the All-Stars traveled from all corners of the map to join together and combine their creative juices into one mack-daddy of a performance. The level of professional musicianship was out-of-this-world and the vibes were infinitely contagious.
