"The band's first CD, an 11-song, all-original venture, recorded in the attic of a local downtown bar, came out in 2013 under the title "Travelin On".The pleasant effort has a punchy sound that would have been quite at home in San Francisco of the 1960s or early 1970s, and has an energy not unlike that of Moby Grape before the hype, or the young Quicksilver Messenger Service.

In September, the Band successfully concluded a $5,000.00 Kickstarter campaign for it's new album. The new CD will be titled The Wheel, truncated from one of its tunes, the catchy rocker Reinvent the Wheel. "

the lightnin' bugs

Shreveport has got to be the only place the Lightnin' Bugs could have happened.
Steeped in music as varied as reggae, rhythm and blues, rock, country and jazz, the Bugs fuzed together to create a different kind of band with the focus was on fun and originality. These guys, at one time or another, played with and for the likes of James Burton, Jimmy Reed, Ray Price, Freddie King, The Killer Bees.....heck, everybody. They are my all-time favorite Louisiana band - here for a rare homecoming holiday concert - put on your fun-hat, this will be historic!

From his days with the Killer Bees to his solo debut with 2000’s storming Thunder Chicken and his rise as a producer helming the widely acclaimed The Phenomenal Ruthie Foster, Malcolm “Papa Mali” Welbourne has established himself as quite possibly the most ferociously funky guitarist and swamp-rock savant between South Austin and the Big Easy. A native of Mississippi who grew up in Shreveport, La., Mali describes his most recent album, 2007’s Do Your Thing, as “the audio equivalent of a warm mudbath on Jupiter,” which is at once both right on the money and deceptive: both Mali and his music may be “out there,” but there’s nothing at all spacey about this dreadlocked artist’s deep and dirty earthy grooves.
