Everything came together to reunite The Everyman Band at Auburn Public Theater this weekend.
The funk jazz quartet of 50 years still gets together a few times annually, bassist Bruce Yaw said, and played the downtown Auburn venue last June. On Sunday, Yaw, saxophonist Marty Fogel and drummer Michael Suchorsky will once again share a stage with Grover Kemble, the band’s original guitarist and vocalist. But that’s only because Kemble will already be in Auburn, performing his Jimmy Durante tribute show at the theater Thursday through Saturday. He’ll stay an extra day in Auburn so he and his former bandmates can play sets of material by each, Yaw said, followed by a jam.
“It was an opportunity too good to pass up,” Yaw said.
