Bonoff's, Alex McDonald, Waylon, Rooster and other musicians

Update on Bonoff's, Alex McDonald, Waylon, Rooster and other musicians as of 9/25...

Janson (lead singer and keyboard player from Bonoff's) has formed a new band (doesn't even have a name for it yet). Janson, of course, is lead singer and keyboard player, Alex McDonald is his washboard player, Jason Bishop (from VooDoo Vibe) is electric guitar and Susan Cowsill's husband is drummer. They are playing Fri/Sun. at Fat Katz and Monday, Tues. Wed. at Krazy Korner. They are the early band...1:00-7:30 or 2:00-7:30 ish. Cajun, a little zydeco and some country....excellent mix and excellent musicians! Waylon is not on Bourbon. He is playing festivals (Boutte Alligator Festival this weekend) and doing some gigs out of town/state. Generally his website is up to date. Rooster is still on break...has played only 1-2 gigs on Bourbon in the last 3 months. His website is NEVER up to date!..Willie Lockett and the All Purpose Blues Band is still at Funky Pirate on Sunday nights, and Gary Brown is there on Monday nights....both excellent Blues bands. Troy turner is still at Chris Owen's. playing mostly Blues....good crowd last night, but his nights are inconsistent depending on Miss Chris' decisions....usually Thur-Sun.

Would love to see Willie Lockett and The All Purpose Blues Band get more gigs on Bourbon.

His bass player, Paul Boudreaux and his drummer, Tony D'Allessandro are playing on Thursday nights with Danny Alexander at The Swamp Inn in Westwego. Fabulous band!

It is off the beaten path but we think it is worth the trip. Swamp Inn is a local, raucous road house kind of joint. 385 Louisiana. Sits right where the shrimp boats come in, adjacent to a shrimp packing plant. Fun people are very welcoming to non-locals. Place rocks out on Thursday nights and there is usually a food truck outside.
