The Bowlive Story, a two-part miniseries, covers the history of one of Brooklyn Bowl's longest-running residencies, Bowlive, featuring jazz/funk trio Soulive. The series is a celebratory reflection on the ten years of Brooklyn Bowl since doors first opened on July 7, 2009. The series features interviews with each member of Soulive (Eric Krasno, Alan Evans, and Neal Evans) and both founders of Brooklyn Bowl (Peter Shapiro and Charley Ryan). The Bowlive Story unveils the residency's genesis through an in-depth look at the ten-year history of Brooklyn Bowl and the story behind one of Brooklyn's most unique music traditions—Bowlive.
