GUMBO YA YA! 30 YEARS ON.
STILL KICKIN' STILL COOKIN'
Adelaide’s Gumbo Ya! Ya! formed in late 1987 with the aim of presenting the richness and variety of New Orleans rhythm and blues music. The band’s name comes from the New Orleans expression meaning “everybody’s talkin'”. And boy were they talkin’! Early fans of the band spread the word far and wide and a loyal following was born...
Gumbo Ya! Ya! packed out Sunday afternoon residencies and venues playing to capacity crowds who couldn’t get enough of the high energy R&B this seven-piece outfit was dishing up. Later supports to musical legends BB King, Joe Cocker and Ray Charles cemented the reputation of Gumbo Ya! Ya! as one of the most respected and entertaining bands in the country, resulting in appearances on national radio and television shows including Hey! Hey! It’s Saturday!
To this day, their live shows remain the hallmark of their popularity.
Thirty years on and the band is Still Kickin’ Still Cookin’!
Guests at The Arkaba will enjoy a special reunion performance by the original line up, followed by the Gumbo Ya! Ya! of today which sees a few new players joining original members, and a slightly different sound that has evolved with the band over the years. But one thing that has never changed is the raw energy and excitement that ‘Gumbo’ shows are known for.
The boys are still on fire and look forward to this one - off show MCed by the charismatic international singer/songwriter and owner of Arty Records, Ronnie Taheny
