LOST BAYOU RAMBLERS

The Grammy award winning Lost Bayou Ramblers’ evolution as a perversely progressive band rooted in Cajun traditions continues to excite, challenge, and redefine both genre expectations as well as cultural preconceptions.  Lost Bayou Ramblers stands at the crosscurrents of Louisiana culture by inhabiting the gray area between Cajun and Creole, convention and innovation, mystery and a revelation, experimenting and growing the show to what it's become today: an eclectic mix of modern sounds and rhythms with ancient Cajun melodies and lyrics.  World Café says “The Grammy-winning group plays a revved-up version of Cajun music, shot through with punk energy and psychedelic fuzz.”

 

79rs GANG

79rs Gang was formed in 2013 when Big Chief Romeo Bougere of the 9th Ward Hunters and Big Chief Jermaine Bossier of the 7th Ward Creole Hunters put their differences aside and came together to make music, building on the deep roots of the New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian traditions they grew up with. This Afrocentric assimilation pays homage to the historical assistance offered their forebears by Native Americans. Gangs are known as tribes and the Big Chiefs play an important role in the costume making that begins as soon as the last Mardi Gras finishes. Both Bougere and Bossier come from families with storied connections to Mardi Gras and carry that ethos into 79rs Gang, working alongside drummer/producer Eric Heigle to fuse it with New Orleans funk and Hip-Hop, bringing masking to the masses.
