EAC was thrilled to book Roochie Toochie & the Ragtime Shepherd Kings for a two-day stint in August 2020, following up on their wildly energetic, virtuosic performance in September 2017. In lieu of enjoying the band’s return engagement (canceled due to Covid closure), which would have included one of two workshops: Forgotten Dances of the 1920s or Building a Sound Sculpture (alas!!), we present these clips taken at the 2017 show. The videographer apologizes for the ‘herky-jerky’ quality of the footage, made in a ‘how can I not try to tape some of this?’ spirit.
Fingers crossed we’ll get to hear Roochie Toochie again one day, and in the meanwhile, “What Can I Say, After I’ve Said Salami?”
