    New Orleans Night - Toot Sweet & Down South Toot Sweet Bayou Funk on the Liffey banks, courtesy of this latest outfit from piano man Cian Boylan, invoking the spirit of The Big Easy and the music of Dr John, Professor Longhair, Rebirth and Dirty Dozen Brass Bands. With swampy Hammond grooves and a take-no-prisoners horn section, Toot Sweet pack some real punch with Cormac Kenevey (vcl), Conor Brady(gtr), Brendan Doyle (sax), Mark Adams (tpt), Karl Ronan (tbn), with bassist Dan Bodwell and drummer John Wilde in the engine room. Down South Expatriate New Yorker Ben Prevo is one of Eire's best kept secrets ! The genre - bending guitarist, vocalsit and composer brings the honesty, integrity and simplicity of the blues to a varied repetiore of songs and instrumentals - both original and covers ranging from country and psychedelia to blues and funk and jazzy flavours -- Dylan to Hank Williams to Hendrix to Jimmy Webb - and more.... Playing professionally for over 30 years Ben has had the honor of performing with Levon Helm, Rashied Ali, Jerry Gonzales, Chuck Leavell, Benny Mardones, John Hall. Jerry Jemmott, Jaco Pastorious, Juma Sultan, Pee Wee Ellis, Ace Frehley, Jorma Kaukonen, Chris Spedding, Brian Downey, Leo Barnes, Jerry Fehily, Liam O Maonlai, U. P. Wilson' Lefty Diz, Lowell Fulson, Noel Redding, Public Enemy, Mick Ronson..... as well as many 'lesser known' but equally fabulous musicians. Ben has performed curtural halls in Europe, the main stages of the Gaiety and the Olympia and dives and clubs and pubs from Forth Worth to London to Ballyferriter to Crested Butte Wyoming to the Hard Rock Cafe in Bucharest... The good thing about a Ben Prevo gig is you may hear some of the same songs as the last time -- but it will always be different !
