This is the time of year when many Jazz Fest late nights get announced, so for promoters of these events it’s not easy to make a big splash when announcing your gigs. Unless of course you’re assembling a batch of ridiculously talented musicians for a one-time performance as is the case for a May 2nd late night billed as “Fiya Powa!”
This show brings together drummer Stanton Moore (Galactic), bassist Tony Hall (Dumpstaphunk), keyboardist Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), saxophone wiz Skerik (Garage a Trois), lap steel performer Roosevelt Collier (The Lee Boys) and guitarist Andrew Block (Big Sam’s Funky Nation). Can’t beat that lineup. Keep your eyes on the venue’s website for ticketing details.
