Earth, Wind & Power, All Brothers Band, Organ Freeman, & Allen Toussaint Tribute Will Play Tonight In NOLA

first_imgDuring the daze between both weekends of New Orleans Jazz Fest, the celebratory energy remains, as many musicians stay down in the Big Easy to play shows and see the rest of their musical brethren. On Tuesday, May 2nd, The Nth Power will bring together a slew of special guests to re-create their Earth, Wind, & Fire tribute known as “Earth, Wind & Power.” They’ll be joined by the second-ever performance of the All Brothers Band, made up of the dual-brother attack of Oteil and Kofi Burbridge and Neal and Alan Evans, up-and-coming funk act Organ Freeman, as well as a tribute to Allen Toussaint by members of Turkuaz, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Electric Beethoven, & Nigel Hall Band. Tickets are currently available here.Watch The Nth Power’s ‘Earth, Wind & Power’ Perform “Devotion” At Brooklyn Comes AliveWith The Nth Power putting together a stellar ensemble for this tribute to Earth Wind & Fire, it is without a doubt going to be an amazing performance. There will be plenty of that funk and soul to keep your body moving into the late-night hours with an incredible cast of musicians including Rashawn Ross (Dave Matthews Band), Skerik, Weedie Braimah, Lyle Divinsky (The Motet), Drew Sayers (The Motet), Erica Falls (Galactic), Paul Robinson, and Farnell Newton, as well as Kofi and Oteil Burbridge.Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Company, Allman Brothers), keyboardist and flautist Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Derek Trucks Band), keyboardist Neal Evans (Lettuce, Soulive) and drummer Alan Evans (Soulive, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) are making their second-ever appearance as “The All Brothers Band,” with their first being at last year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive. The Brothers collaborated for an EP earlier this year, though they’ve yet to present this project for public ears. We can expect smooth layers of funk and jazz with these players, but there’s really no telling what they might have in store.Organ Freeman provides some serious toe-tapping jives, fueled by the trio of guitarists Erik Carlson, drummer Rob Humphreys and organist Trevor Steer, hard at work. Like many bands comprised of tight-laced musicianship, Organ Freeman emerged from an intensive music program called the Musicians Institute of Hollywood. Steer explains that the group “initially formed the group as more of an opportunity to experiment than a serious project while we were all students, and continued on as a creative outlet while we all played out as freelance musicians. It wasn’t until years later when we were presented with the chance to do a record that the band sort of morphed into what it is today.”The 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.Tickets for this special late-night performance are currently on sale here.– SHOW INFO –Artist:    Earth Wind & Power / All Brothers Band / Organ Freeman / Allen Toussaint JukeboxVenue:   Howlin’ Wolf – 907 S.

If you have a job that you’re passionate about, that is fantastic news. For those of you who are in the other 80%, here are a few ways you can enjoy your job more.Get rid of the negativity: If you want to be a better mood at work, you have to step letting others bring you down. While co-workers aren’t always to blame, when a cloud of negativity is overhead, it’s hard to see the sunshine. Keep this in mind the next time you’re listening to Negative Nancy complain about work.Do some research: If the job has you down, figure out what the root issue is. Is it something you can easily fix? Great. Get to fixing it. Not an easy problem to solve? Decide if there’s hope for change or it you’re going to be able to deal with it. At this point you have to make a decision to either find something else to do or stick it out and hope things get better.Surround yourself with positivity: Regardless of the negatives around you, there must be some positives to your job or else you never would have accepted the position in the first place.
