Bayou Boogaloo Picks- Sunday

The Brian Coogan Band is one of hottest acts on the scene today.  They start things off on the Orleans stage at 11:45 AM followed by Ernie Vincent and the Top Notes.  Then Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes take the stage with their take-no-prisoners approach to rock and funk.  The day finishes with bluesman Tab Benoit joining Cajun pioneers Beausoleil.  Elsewhere on the grounds, Walter “Wolfman” Washington (pictured- photo credit- Kim Welsh) performs with his band, the Roadmasters, at 2:30 PM followed by the Mardi Gras Indian Orchestra.  Word is that George Porter, Jr. is going to appear with Johnny Vidacovich to close the day on the Lafitte Stage.  However, I would seriously recommend skipping their performance in favor the TBC Brass Band.  They just buried their saxophonist Brandon Franklin on Friday so emotions will still be running high.
