THE DATE IS SET for Burning Crawfish 2018!!!!!! Saturday June 2nd at CLENTONVILLE in Lafayette, LA!
More updates coming soon.
In the meantime here is a little something from our buddies in Merle Swaggard....
I am excited to announce the addition of what I sometimes think of as a one-man-big-band: Blind Texas Marlin.
Front man, singer, guitarist, and harmonicist John Curry's songwriting sets the stage for a great rotating spectrum of musicians from the New Orleans area. All in the style of gritty-folk rock, acoustic guitar combines with upright bass, trombone, and a tambourine and spoon rhythm section.
Whether he's performing solo or with the full ten or twelve musicians that make up the band, Blind Texas Marlin brings the heart and soul to any performance he gives.
Only *one more month* til the festival kicks off!!!
While I finalize all the bands and put together the flyer, you guys can entertain yourselves with a little music by my friends in Dummy Dumpster.
Dummy Dumpster has been making creative music in the New Orleans area for years....I know this, because they were one of the first bands I ever saw at the Dixie Tavern when I moved to New Orleans in 2003. At the time, it was only one guy (the bandleader, Mike Schadwell) playing an instrument that if I remember correctly was basically a bunch of noisy kids' toys all duct-taped together. Memorable, to say the least.
And I think that's what I really admire about these guys....the show is always a spectacle. Costumes, props, wrestling matches....you just never know. Plus....who doesn't love some good healthy high energy rock?!
