The Disco Biscuits Debut New Song, Welcome Eric “Benny” Bloom For Triumphant NOLA Return [Full-Show Video]

first_imgThe Disco Biscuits kicked off their two-night run at the newly opened Fillmore New Orleans on Friday night, with opening support from instrumental prog-jam quartet TAUK.The excitement and anticipation were at an all-time-high, as The Disco Biscuits had not performed in the “Crescent City” in over a decade. Their last trip to the “Big Easy” was back in 2008, when they played a pair of shows at the very beginning of that year’s Jazz Fest season. Now, eleven years later, the band landed right where they were meant to be with an after-midnight show on the First Friday of the 50th anniversary of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.In typical NOLA fashion, The Disco Biscuits welcomed local musician and touring Lettuce trumpeter Eric “Benny” Bloom to the stage to close the first set with a brass-heavy “Afro Blue” and “Mulberry’s Dream”. To open their jam-laden second set, the jamtronica pioneers introduced a brand new song they’re calling “That Sample Has a Name” before going into a wild back-to-back “Caterpillar” and “Helicopter” sandwich.The Disco Biscuits – 4/26/19 – Full ShowTonight, The Disco Biscuits will return to the stage with opening support from local brass band Naughty Professor.
