Lenny Kravitz Brings Funk-Centric Rock to the Wal-Mart Soundcheck Stage

Though a well-known industry veteran, Lenny Kravitz hasn't lost any of his performance energy, as demonstrated by his funky, retro performance at Wal-Mart's Soundcheck stage.

Following performances from Seether, Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes, and Jason Derulo, and The Gaslight Anthem, and Lee Brice, Wal-Mart Soundcheck has brought funk rock maestro Lenny Kravitz to its online stage. Though Kravitz was at his peak with mid-'00s hits like "Lady", he hasn't stopped bringing his retro brand of rock to the world. His latest album, Strut, exemplifies everything about Kravitz's classic rock stylings.

For his performance at Wal-Mart Soundcheck, Kravitz and his backup band bring a full-energy funk, providing those watching him online the next best thing to actually being present at a live concert. The performance highlights the best material on Strut, which was released just this week.
