Friday’s performance comes on the heels of the release of Legacy, a collection of soul covers the band began recording several years but put on moth balls after the death of longtime bandleader and trumpet player Ned Theall. Expect at least eight if not 10 musicians cramming the snug Sans Souci bandshell for this rare performance.
Concession sales begin at 5:30 p.m.; the music rolls from 6-8:30 p.m. Concession sales help keep Downtown Alive! free so please leave the ice chests at home. DTA! closes out next week with a performance in Parc International by zydeco standard bearers Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas.
