The Rogue presents "The Sounds of New Orleans" with Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars and Cannery Row for a pre-Mardi Gras celebration.
Gary Comeau & The Voodoo Allstars possess a unique flair that lays out a soundscape of the jazz, roots, latin and blues from the cultural rich history of New Orleans. From the jazz influence of Louis Armstrong, the New Orleans piano sounds of Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Dr. John & Allen Toussaint to the funky sounds of the Neville Brothers, Gary weaves his own musical gumbo style.
The Voodoo Allstars are:
Gary Comeau - piano, fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar, vocal
Tim Hearsey - guitar, vocal
Darryl Havers - organ, piano, accordion
Jerry Cook - sax, washboard, percussion
Rob Becker - bass
Chris Nordquist - drums, washboard, vocal
Gary is also a member of Cannery Row, a trio with diverse musical backgrounds but a common love of roots Americana styles. Comeau and his bandmates, veterans Tim Hearsey (guitar) and Chris Nordquist (drums), stir up an eclectic mix of original tunes, influenced by Mardi Gras in New Orleans, the blues from Memphis and the Mississippi Delta, the Latin rhythms of Cuba and a sprinkle of the early roots of jazz.
This concert is made possible with financial support from Canadian Heritage.
