Mix Jojo Hermann from Widespread Panic with The Dynamites and what do you get? Slim Wednesday, the day after Fat Tuesday—Southern Psych-Soul. Straight out of a deep soul/funk/boogie voodoo cauldron, Slim Wednesday’s debut full-length, Reptile Show, jumps from jam to deep dish funk to New Orleans piano to troubadour soul to Toussaint-style gut bucket. A new sound of some old sounds that have come around--to help us get down.
Slim Wednesday's lineup is stacked with funk, soul and jazz sluggers--with Jon Jackson (Macy Gray) on sax, Ben Clark (Anderson East) on trumpet, Jojo Hermann (Widespread Panic) on keys and vocals, Greg Bryant (Dara Tucker) on bass, Bill Elder (a.k.a. Leo Black from The Dynamites) on guitar and vocals, and Kevin Mabin, the heavy-hitting groove machine for this band since the get-go. All very busy guys, but several times a year, the planets align to bring this krewe together on the road, in order to deliver Louisiana soul, funk, and boogie in their truest, and newest forms.
A section of this show will be dedicated to the musical legacy of New Orleans’ piano legend Professor Longhair who would have turned 100 this year.
