This will be our 12th annual Blue Wing Blues Festival held out in the shaded garden between the Hotel and Restaurant in the cool of the early evening. The $50 + tax admission price includes an opening and headliner band plus a delicious barbeque dinner. The theme of the August weekend is authentic “Bayou Blues” all three nights.
The opening night features a great local band headed by guitarist HOWARD REGGIE DOCKENS opening for one of our absolute favorites all the way from Baton Rouge, KENNY NEAL AND HIS FAMILY BAND. Kenny is pictured here, and we’re lucky to have him back to headline the Saturday show. Opening for Kenny on Saturday will be the local band CLEAN SWEEP headed by Pat Gleeson. Sunday’s headliner from Austin TX playing New Orleans favorites is THE CHARLEY CROCKETT BAND with a lively opening set from Lloyd Meadows and the TRI-TIP ZYDECO TRIO.
The Blues Festival is always the highlight of our musical year.
