April 7, 8PM – THE VOODUDES BYOB
What is this voodoo that the VooDUDES do?
Well first you gotta make a Roux!!!
Then add in some New Orleans funk, blues, boogie-woogie and honky-tonk. Add a pinch of Zydeco, Southern soul and Caribbean party music and let it simmer ‘til it’s real thick.
In the vast VooDUDES library of original songs, nothing is sacred. Whether it’s imploding the hits of Hank Williams into the ultimate drivin’ and cryin’ song (“That Hank Williams Feeling”), or eulogizing the Southern jazz funeral (“Party When You’re Gone”), The VooDUDES do it all–and with a beat that will make you move your feet.
The VooDUDES have been featured in numerous festivals, including The Red Bank Jazz and Blues Festival, Philadelphia’s “Jambalaya Jam”, New York’s “Benson & Hedges Blues Festival” and Ft. Lauderdale’s “Crazy Crawfish Fest.” They’ve shared the stage with many of their favorite musicians–among them, Dr John, Levon Helm, Branford Marsalis, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Buckwheat Zydeco, C.J. Chenier, Chubby Carrier, Mavis Staples and more.
The band has performed everywhere from Montreal, Canada to New Orleans. The band has also toured in Europe.
They’ve produced six CDs: I’ve Been VooDUDE, Wake the Dead, Night of the Living ‘DUDES, Block Party and Let ‘em Roll and Take Cover.
