Champions of the Sun by Ryan Smith

Saturday, May 6

Rusted Root founding member Jim Donovan has long been celebrated as a hands-on, masterful musician, defying one-dimensional definitions and touching on teachable moments both sonic and social during a career that’s danced through a good couple of decades.

Now, following what had been a lengthy hiatus, the drummer/multi-instrumentalist is keeping at it with one of his most worthwhile projects, Jim Donovan & Sun King Warriors – and they’re bringing their light to the Kings Rook Club on Saturday, May 6.

If you’re into rhythm, and grooving, you probably want to go check this one out. You’ll get down, maybe learn something.

It’s an early show on their end, with things kicking off at 9 p.m.

And oh yeah: Nasty-funk favorites Smackdab are coming down to the Rook to close the night out in fine fashion.

That’s a lot of dance-worthy jam, funk, rock, soul and everything in between for one evening.

Almost sounds like summer’s in the air, eh? – Ryan Smith
