Jon Batiste and Stay Human at Celebrate Brooklyn

jon batiste and stay humanDue to another commitment, I only made it to the last hour of last night's show by Jon Batiste and Stay Human at Celebrate Brooklyn, but despite being onstage for nearly two hours - not to mention having played their day job as the house band for The Late Show - the band seemed as if they could go all night. Mixing New Orleans jazz with rock, funk, and even a little Für Elise, Batiste is a consummate showman, jumping up and down, easily moving between piano, drums and synth. At the end, he led the band offstage and on a Mardi Gras parade around the entire perimeter, driving the crowd into elation.
