Presented by the Backbeat Foundation, WimBash returned to the New Orleans Jazzfest After Dark series for the 7th consecutive year. Bringing the funk and old school vibe, Doug Wimbish assembled a WimBash New Orleans All-Star line-up including:
Maurice “Mobetta” Brown
Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer
Delphine De St. Paer
Special guests: Louis Cato (Jon Batiste and Stay Human)
Corey Glover (Living Colour)
The WimBash event featured a tribute to Wood, Brass & Steel, one of Doug’s first band collaborations as a teen in Hartford, CT.
At the age of 18, Doug wrote ‘My Darling Baby’ while in Wood, Brass & Steel, which was later sampled by Erykah Badu in her hit song, ’20 Feet Tall’.
