I have to confess, the opening band (Stooges Brass Band) sort of stole the show for me. They really had the audience up and out of their seats, dancing and laughing. Very high energy, choreographed dance moves, felt just like being in New Orleans. Brother Jocephus and the Love Revolution were extremely talented, tight instrumentals and very well done set, but it just seemed a lower energy level after Stooges. Part of it was the fact that it was held at City Winery which caters primarily to middle age folks who had to get to bed early on a Wed night, so many of them filtered out during the show and left less than 50 people by the end of the set. The other part was that I guess you have to literally tell audiences to get up and dance or they won't. The space is arranged with long tables for dining so it's not really shaped like a dance venue the way it was laid out. Also: City Winery is a great venue from a space perspective, but they really do need to upgrade their speakers. Vocals are often hard to hear, instruments get muddied - I noticed it last time we were here but I thought it was just the band. Now I know it's the sound system!
