His legendary live performances incorporate spoons on washboards, complex vocal harmonies and a diverse repertoire that feel more like a party than a show. The group has toured 45 countries and have shared studio and stage with Robert Palmer, Stevie Wonder, Los Lobos, Paul Simon and Dave Matthews Band to name a few.
