During 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.

Ulster showed no rustiness after the break for the autumn internationals as they posted an emphatic five-try, bonus-point RaboDirect PRO12 win over Edinburgh on Friday night. The returning Craig Gilroy scored two of Ulster’s tries – the first and fourth – while fly-half James McKinney scored 21 points with a try and an unblemished record off the tee with five conversions and three penalties in the 41-17 triumph. Ulster’s other try-scorers were Paul Marshall and captain Robbie Diack, while Edinburgh crossed the hosts’ line three times with Cornell du Preez, Dougie Fife and Grayson Hart all touching down in a frantic second-half scoring spree. He did so again two minutes later when the bonus point was secured by Gilroy from an intercept, though the sight of Luke Marshall then being helped from the field took some of the gloss off the score. However, Ulster again hit back with McKinney then touching down and converting his own 69th-minute effort. Edinburgh, though, worked Fife over in the 72nd minute which made it 41-10 and substitute Hart got another in the 74th minute, which Leonard converted to make the scoreline more respectable for the visitors. Press Association Indeed, Edinburgh got the first points on the board just before the quarter-hour mark off a scrum when Sam Hidalgo-Clyne broke blind and fed Du Preez, with the number eight then smashing through Michael Allen and Craig Gilroy to score in the corner. Harry Leonard missed the conversion, but further misery was heaped upon the home side as Iain Henderson then left the action with an injury. McKinney then narrowed the visitors’ lead with a penalty after Ulster’s scrum won a penalty. Ulster scored next as well after substitute Ricky Andrew launched a great counter-attack and skipper Diack put an excellent chip into the corner, which saw temporary sub Tom Brown run into touch. From the lineout, Ulster spun the ball left and Darren Cave’s pass allowed Gilroy to pirouette through to score. McKinney added a marvellous conversion and Ulster were 10-5 up. Then, two minutes after the half-hour, Cave burst through and his pass to Paul Marshall was hacked on by the scrum-half to score near the posts. McKinney easily added the extras and Ulster moved 17-5 ahead. Right on half-time, another big Ulster scrum yielded a penalty and McKinney did the necessary to extend his side’s interval lead. The game erupted into life on the hour mark after Izak van der Westhuizen was yellow-carded for pulling down an Ulster driving maul, and immediately afterwards Diack drove over beside the posts to allow McKinney to again add the extras.
