Bon soir, mes amis! Bienvenue à la Louisiana House Party!
For an hour a week, let’s stroll down Bourbon Street . . . soak in the sounds of Henry Butler and Big Chief Bo Dollis at the Funky Butt . . . stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the revelers at The Maple Leaf . . . recline in a pasture in Opelousas to the sound of Wayne Toups’ accordion and a thumping bass . . . and drip wet with sweat at Richard’s where the dancing pounds the ancient wood floor until the wee hours of the morning.
The Louisiana House Party gives voice to the rich heritage of jazz, funk, blues, Cajun and Zydeco music that is the collective memory of Louisiana.
Join me every Monday afternoon at 2 PM for a musical gumbo that is sure to satisfy every musical taste.
We’re havin’ a House Party. Ya’ll invited down!
