Earth Wind & Power, All Brothers Band, Allen Toussaint Jukebox @ Howlin’ Wolf
May 2 @ 11:00 pm$27.50
On Tuesday, May 2nd, The Nth Power will bring together a slew of special guests to re-create their epic tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire tribute known as “Earth, Wind & Power”. This show was a smash hit at Jazz Fest last year, and received rave reviews at this year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive festival. It’s a euphoric tribute that dives deep into the catalog of Earth, Wind & Fire, as the band delivers deep cuts alongside some of the band’s mega-hits. The Nth Power has organized a ton of special guests for this show, with Rashawn Ross of Dave Matthews Band, Skerik, Weedie Braimah, Farnell Newton, and Drew Sayers and Lyle Divinsky of The Motet all joining in on the fun.
Earth, Wind & Power will be joined by Oteil and Kofi Burbridge and Neal and Alan Evans, also known as the All Brothers Band. This is another band that made waves at Brooklyn Comes Alive, as well as up-and-coming funk act Organ Freeman. The Brothers collaborated for an EP earlier this year, though they’ve yet to present this project for public ears, but you can expect smooth layers of funk and jazz throughout the improv-heavy set. Oteil and Kofi will be playing double duty on this night, as both of them will also make appearances during Earth, Wind & Power’s headlining set.
A tribute to Allen Toussaint, known as the “Allen Toussaint Jukebox,” will feature a full set of music from his prodigious career. The band will consist of Shira Elias and Michelangelo Carubba from Turkuaz, Sasha Brown from Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Todd Stoops from Electric Beethoven, and Eric Vogel from the Nigel Hall Band, and it will take place in the cozy confines of The Den.
The ambitious and aggressive funk of Organ Freeman will add to this powerhouse bill as the opening act. Organ Freeman is fueled by the trio of guitarist Erik Carlson, drummer Rob Humphreys and organist Trevor Steer, and should immediately be put on your radar if it isn’t already.
