Joe’s Pub celebrates the life and legacy of our friend Allen Toussaint. Mr. Toussaint’s career as a solo musician came to life in the days after Katrina as he took to the stage at Joe’s Pub to raise funds for MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund. His shows at Joe’s Pub were not-to-be-missed and were captured on his Grammy nominated 2012 live album and DVD, Songbook. Today’s brunch performance will be helmed by his longtime band featuring Herman LeBeaux, Renard Poche, Roland Guerin, Reginald Toussaint and Joe Krown and feature guest vocalists including “The Soul Queen of New Orleans” Irma Thomas.
Presented in association with Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing.
