Happy Mardi Gras Day! The original artist is a New Orleans legend. He is considered a father figure to those that came after him such as Allen Toussaint and Dr. John. The name he is known by could bring to mind a studious hippie!

Today’s song is one of the classics celebrating this day in New Orleans.

Our Shadow artist is a transplanted New Orleanian. He moved to NOLA from England and immediately became a student of New Orleans culture and music. His band’s name sounds scary and polite at the same time!
