Lexi Weege and JJ Slater Band Live at Sovereign Kava

September 16, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Lexi Weege and JJ Slater met at a shared gig in 2019. After Weege finished a smoking set while rolling around on the bar, Slater picked up his guitar and played a soul-stirring “Amazing Grace” with funk band Organ Transplant. The possibility for an incendiary collaboration was immediately clear. Fast forward three years, and the pair have completed four national tours, numerous recording collaborations (including Weege’s upcoming solo EP), and have assembled a massive, passionate family of musicians.

Their uniquely psychedelic distillation of blues, indie rock, Americana and funk are a perfect match for Sovereign Kava’s vibey, relaxed atmosphere and eclectic brews.
