TBT – Mardi Gras Edition w/ Aaron Neville & The Subdudes (2005)

Aaron Neville & The Subdudes - Mardi Gras TBT - eTown

In the spirit of Mardi Gras, today we’re throwing it back to a special taping from 2005 featuring New Orleans natives Aaron Neville & the Subdudes! This show was taped on November 13, 2005, shortly after Hurricane Katrina. Throughout the show, Aaron, the Subdudes & host Nick Forster,¬†took a look at the city of New Orleans and focused on the victims of hurricane Katrina as all of the visiting artists have their roots in the Big Easy.

The legendary Aaron Neville brought his unique voice and his band featuring brothers Charles on Sax to the historic Boulder Theatre stage for a one of a kind performance. Neville has been one of New Orleans most visible and outspoken proponents on the recovery of the city, and shares his views with Nick Forster during their conversation.

 

The Subdudes - eTown ArchiveJoining Aaron on this show were the Subdudes. Reunited in 2002, the Subdudes returned to eTown with all the frenetic energy they can compress into their tunes, and with two members who were personally impacted by the hurricane, they share their experiences and impressions of the rebuilding of one of the nation’s great cities.
