Artist Profile: Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe
We can’t wait to welcome Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (KDTU) to the stage at The Huckleberry Jam this year! KDTU is an American Jazz and Funk band, and we’re so excited to have them perform.
Karl Denson is a man of many talents. He is the lead singer of KDTU, and he can play the saxophone and the flute. He doesn’t just play those instruments, he plays them well! He has surrounded himself with other talented musicians to create a band that puts on one of the best live shows. Denson performs alongside a guitarist, drummer, bassist, keyboardist, trumpeter, and lap steel guitarist (DJ Williams, Alan Evans, Chris Stillwell, David Veith, Chris Littlefield, and Seth Freeman). He also co-founded and led the group “The Greyboy Allstars” and “The Karl Denson Trio.”
