Tribute to Allen Toussaint @ City Winery 11/29/2015
The Music of Allen Toussaint - A Memorial Tribute

Over the weekend, NYC celebrated the spirit and music of New Orleans music icon Allen Toussaint with a show at City Winery. This was originally supposed to have been an actual Toussaint show before he tragically, unexpectedly died while on tour in Europe. Louisiana native Jon Batiste, who spends most nights these days as The Late Show with Stephen Colbert‘s bandleader, headed up the evening which included appearances from singer/musicians Morgan James, Stacie Orrico, Davell Crawford, Doug Wamble, as well as members of Batiste’s band Stay Human, Batiste’s father Michael, and more. Pictures from the Toussaint tribute are in this post.

The day before (11/28) there was another Tourssaint tribute, which happened in Washington Square Park. It was in the style of a New Orleans funeral, complete with a marching band. His actual funeral in New Orleans happened November 20 which doubled as a musical tribute with performances/tributes by Cyril Neville, Deacon John, Davell Crawford, Irma Thomas, Jimmy Buffett, Elvis Costello, John Boutte, Boz Scaggs, and the Preservation Hall Brass Band.
