Former SNL cast member Maya Rudolph and The Legendary Roots Crew will collaborate for a performance dedicated to the one and only, Prince. The show goes down tonight (Sep 20th) at the Brooklyn Bowl as a special edition of Questlove’s residency at the venue and will feature covers from throughout His Purple Majesty’s career.

Doors open at 10 p.m. and tickets are $15 at the door.

Maya Rudolph is no rookie when it comes to performing the Prince catalogue. Last year, at the Troubadour, Rudolph performed with her Prince cover band, Princess. Assemble your crew and watch Maya go all “game…blouses” on this cover of “Nikki Darling” from that show below.

Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum as ‘Princess’ blew my mind with the ending of their cover of ‘Nikki Darling.’ from Jennifer Sharpe on Vimeo.
