Founded in 1965 by poets Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg, the Fugs have written songs, recorded and performed for over fifty years. The current ensemble of the Fugs has been together for 34 years, since 1985. It consists of Ed Sanders, leader and founder; Steve Taylor, vocals and guitars; Coby Batty, vocals and percussion; and Scott Petito, bass, keyboards, and other stringed instruments.
The Fugs perform selections in their concerts from their 50 + years of songs and poems. Featured at Joe’s Pub will be their “Exorcism of the White House,” with the audience invited to chant along…Out, demons, out! Out, demons, out!
