Toubab Krewe Summer Tour

Toubab Krewe Set Summer Tour

Toubab Krewe
Toubab Krewe hits the road this summer for a tour that takes the band from Alaska to Portugal, with many stops between. They kick things off this week with dates throughout the Southeast.

The band will spend the July 4th holiday weekend playing several shows in Alaska before capping the U.S. part of the tour with a pair of shows in the Northeast, including a headlining performance at the Festivus for the Restivus in Cabot, VT, an annual festival organized by Toubab Krewe bassist David Pransky.

They will make their European debut at the Festival Músicas do Mundo in Sines, Portugal.

Joining the group for many of the Southeast shows will be special guest artist Rayna Gellert. A world renowned fiddle player best known as a member of Uncle Earl, Gellert is a long time friend and musical collaborator who recently joined the band during their spring tour.

Totally sick. Easily the best drum circle of any band out there today. So tight and a fun vibe at their shows. Wish I was on their Alaska run...

Probably my favorite live show to date was them at bonnaroo in 06. If you get the chance to see them dont miss it, they are guaranteed to move your body in just the right way!

I gave one of the Toubab Krewe musicians a ride back to his hotel after the late night Galactic show at Tipitina's in NOLA. He was a real good guy, his entourage was about 7 women! Anyway, this band is the shit!

Toubab is a great guy...highly enlightened by John Bell and Widespread. He's been known to say that WSP has influenced him melodically.

Rickymullet...please tell me that's some kind of sick attempt at humor. I hope so. Either way that little piece of crap comment made me throw up in my mouth a little.

Toubab Krewe is a band, and I'm a huge spreadhead but I don't know that Toubab's sound resembles WSP very closely...like...at all much really...maybe sunny's percussion. that's about it. Toubab Krewe's awesome though. Great band, they tore the roof off the tent on Thursday night Bonnaroo 06
