Music: Karl Denson and Tiny Universe play the Wild Buffalo

For nearly three decades, legendary saxophonist Karl Denson has been getting crowds around the world out on the dance floor.

Having just completed a tour of Australia and New Zealand as saxophonist for The Rolling Stones, San Diego-based funk-rock icon Karl Denson gets back to it with his band, Tiny Universe, touring the U.S. They will be joined on the tour by celebrated steel guitarist Roosevelt Collier, best known for his work in The Lee Boys, at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 17, at the Wild Buffalo, 208 W. Holly St.

With the electrifying Collier in tow, Denson is sure to dig into the grittier side of his musical oeuvre, including standouts like “My Baby,” “Everybody Knows That” and his raucous rendition of The White Stripes “Seven Nation Army.” Those and more can be found on their most recent LP, “New Ammo.”

Approaching iconic status, Denson has moved bodies and minds dating back to his earliest years with Lenny Kravitz’s band through his ongoing tenure as a founding member of seminal boogaloo revivalists The Greyboy Allstars and his current roll as a member of San Diego dub rockers Slightly Stoopid.

Tickets are $20. Details: wildbuffalo.net.
