Review and photographs by Rudy Lu
John Medeski’s Mad Skillet made their Greater Nippertown concert debut recently at the Cohoes Music Hall. This is a good-time jam band was formed at a spontaneous, late night performance in New Orleans at the 2015 Jazz and Heritage Festival. The band features keyboard mad scientist John Medeski, funk jazz guitarist Will Bernard and the veteran Dirty Dozen rhythm section of Kirk Joseph on sousaphone and Terrence Joseph on drums. Touring in support of their self-titled debut album, they played two sets of funky and otherwise uncategorizable music that had the audience on their feet and dancing for most of the night.
