Toubab Krewe - Montpelier, VT - April 27, 2006

Toubab Krewe, hailing from both Asheville, NC and Cabot,VT, played their brand of West African jam-rock music to a capacity crowd at Montpelier's Positive Pie 2. The approximately 150 person crowd noodled their way through a two hour set based in Malian beats, improv jams, and kora breakdowns. It's amazing to witness the growth that this group, who started less then two years ago, has experienced. The music was strong, positive, and connected as ever, but they appear to be taking more risks and mixing in a handful of new songs.

TK will be playing numerous summer festivals, including Bonnaroo, the Joshua Tree Music Festival, and the Northeast Kingdom Vermont Music Festival, as part of a non-stop touring schedule that doesn't quit until August. The next step Burlington's Metronome tonight. Ex-Phish bassist, Mike Gordon, will most likely be seen lurking next to the stage, as he's said to be a huge fan and is reportedly receiving kora lessons from the Krewe's Justin Perkins.
