Fiya Powa

Nothing like a Fiywerx Productions sponsored late night super jam! This was the 2nd annual Fiya Powa! and featured Stanton Moore on drums, Ivan Neville on keys and vocals, Tony Hall on bass and vocals, Roosevelt Collier on pedal steel guitar, Eddie Roberts on guitar, Fred Wesley on trombone, Sam Kininger on saxophone, and Razhel the Godfather of Noise with the beatboxing. As I usually do, I caught some on video for those that couldn’t make it that late….
