This year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive two-day event will bring together a trio of New Orleans legends for one of its special one-off collaborations, as George Porter Jr., Henry Butler and Johnny Vidacovich will join forces next month.
With Porter on bass, Butler on piano and Vidacovich on drums, the collective nods to Brooklyn Comes Alive’s goal to capture the Jazz Fest vibe in New York City. The trio joins previously announced Allman Brothers Band and Jamiroquai tributes, along with a moe./Aqueous moe.queous collaboration and a special Eric Krasno & Friends set.
