The Cafe enthusiastically welcomes back Toshi Reagon for a second time. She was here last April 1st and brought down the full house with her driving, infectious energy.
In some ways, Toshi is a throwback to classic R & B artists, like Stevie Wonder or Prince, or old school rock group like Led Zeppelin; she can take any style, update it, and make it her own with incredible ease. Toshi fits comfortably on a stage at Carnegie Hall, or in a dirty rock club. She is an artist who’s known for energetic performances and a exemplary gift for writing engaging songs that provoke listeners to think and have fun at the same time.
She has shared the stage with Nona Hendryx, Pete Seeger, Chocolate Genius, Dar Williams and Ani Difranco. Whether playing solo or with her band, her fusion of styles and forms draws listeners in, embraces them and sets them off in a rapturous, hand-raising, foot-stomping delight. Toshi often leaves the stage with the audience clapping and screaming for more.
