Joup Friday Album: Xavier Rudd live…2018

XavierRuddband2018Listen and watch this live performace of Xavier Rudd and tell me it’s a cop out. I’ll respect you if you do but somehow I don’t think you will. Remarkable live show at the Metro in Chicago yesterday lead me to this playlist. It’s worth it. Google it if you like…go on. Incredible band, dynamic and very together. The band I saw was a little different, Bobby Alu was not on drums but a wonderful fijian female drummer Lisa Purmodh. Ian Peres was again along for this tour on the keys and rounding out the quartet was Ethiopian Yosa Haile on Electric Bass. All four played percussion at some point of the set.


Rudd (40 years old) has been on the world music scene for quite some time even at times a one man band. He plays a wide variety of instruments that include: guitar, harmonica, didgeridoo, lap steel and percussion. Yes one man band indeed. But maybe no mistake the rest of the group presented there great talent as well. Simple, well put together stage and light show as well.


This will give you a good idea of what the show was like. My only wish is finding more footage of him and his band. Wow. I hope you enjoy it, live show was spectacular and the Metro did the sound right. Uplifting.
