Mike Gordon Joins the Toubab Krewe at Nectars
In our 2005 Year in Review, Mike Gordon cited Asheville, NCs Toubab Krewe as his favorite new band. Since then the former Phish bassist has caught the African/jam-act on several occasions and, over the weekend, joined the group onstage for the first time at Burlington, VTs Nectars. Gordon emerged for a couple of songs during the groups sold-out performance, including Maliba’ and ‘Bamana Niya.’ Though Saturdays performance was a hometown gig for Gordon, the evenings other special guest, Lamine Soumano, traveled all the way from Mali to play guitar with Toubab Krewe. The group will perform at Baltimore, MDs 8×10 on November 29 with John Browns Body.
