Toubab Krewe Close Out 2022 in Colorado, Southeast

International country music is what Toubab Krewe plays, and nobody plays it quite the way they do! The quintet played some fall dates before two special sets at Suwannee Hulaween. Their main set Sunday night was great; watch the video!

Even more special was a pop-up set Saturday night:

While they were setting up Silent Disco, I heard music. Right nearby. There was a tribe of fire dance flow artists in a blocked-off oval, and Toubab Krewe (4/5s of them) were sitting on a make-shift stage, playing during the hour performance. Toubab offered precisely the right music to accompany these outstanding flow artists. More Spirit Lake magic.

The current tour kicks off December 8 at Cervantes’ Other Side in Denver, followed by a night at The Caribou Room. Then they swing down to Jacksonville, Charleston, Raleigh, and Asheville for shows. They will close out the year at No Resolutions in Brooksville, Florida, December 30. They played that festival last year (different location):

Asheville’s Toubab Krewe, the band that plays international country music, had the next set. Those who had seen this amazing band realized that they were one member short; Justin Perkins (Kora, Kamelngoni, guitar, percussion) was not there. Much of the band’s sound surrounds his African stringed instruments. The four members on stage proceeded to throw down an awesome dance party, just a wonderful tour through their catalog plus some great jams, pouring out their amalgam of surf, punk, Afrobeat, and rock. Terrence Houston on drums and Luke Quaranta on percussion laid down the driving beat, matched by Justin Kimmel on bass, and together with Drew Heller on guitar they made the magic happen.
