One of the most exciting bands to emerge from New Orleans in the early 1990s as punk faded and funk began making huge in-roads in the city is reuniting at Chickie Wah Wah. The Tribe, as they were affectionately known by their fans, was fronted by the vivacious singer, Holden Miller and featured stalwarts of the local scene, Jeff Treffinger on guitar (now with the Geraniums), Vernon Rome on bass and Damon Shea on bass. The band was frequently augmented by guest musicians including percussionist and saxophonists. Tribe Nunzio formed in the late 1980s from the dregs of several other outfits and quickly took the city by storm with their outrageous stage presence, killer songs and off-kilter sensibilities. By 1994, they were history, although there have been several reunion shows since.
