The New Mastersounds Honor Allen Toussaint With Guest-Filled Performance In New Orleans [Photos/Setlist]

first_imgThe New Mastersounds hosted another late night Jazz Fest show for the books, bringing their English-style funk outfit to the city of New Orleans during the most wonderful time of year. Another 2AM show filed into the Joy Theatre for a double set scorcher, welcoming some very special guests for the early morning tribute to the late Allen Toussaint.Lettuce/Soulive’s Eric Krasno, Dumpstaphunk’s Ivan Neville, and southern rock-soul artist Marc Broussard were billed for the “Southern Late Nights” tribute to New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint.The band started and ended the night with their original music, sandwiching the tribute with hits like “Cigar Time” and “Baby Bouncer.” Nearing the approach of sunrise, the all-stars brought a new level of funky respect to classic songs like “Sneakin’ Sally Through The Alley,” “Night People,” and “Last Train.”Check out these incredible photos from last night, courtesy of the great Jeremy Scott: The New Mastersounds will be returning to the Joy Theatre this evening with Jon Cleary and Marc Broussard.
