Tab Benoit’s Swampland Jam Romps Through California!

Spend An Evening with Tab Benoit’s Swampland Jam featuring Tab Benoit, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Johnny Sansone, and Waylon Thibodeaux. This collection of masterful blues and roots performers, all authorities on Louisiana music and culture, kicked off their brief ten-date tour last night in San Diego. Tonight, Friday, September 17, they hit World Records in Bakersfield. This California run will also run through Fresno, Grass Valley, San Luis Obispo, Felton, Union Hall, Berkeley, and Petaluma, winding up up at Crystal Bay Club Casino.

 

You know Tab, one badass guitar slinger, throws down some wicked blues with NOLA at the heart. He will be joined by Big Chief Monk Boudreaux (HBO’s Treme), who incorporates African Rhythms and Mardi Gras Chants into his own original style. Boudreaux is the Big Chief of the Golden Eagles, a legendary Mardi Gras Indian tribe. Johnny Sansone goes deep into Bayou Blues and Zydeco with his roof-shaking vocals, harmonica and accordion. Sansone has won numerous awards in the Crescent City, including multiple categories for Offbeat magazine’s annual “Best of the Beat” competition. Waylon Thibodeaux rounds out the jam on vocals and fiddle. Born in Louisiana’s Bayou Country just a few miles southwest of New Orleans, Houma native Thibodeaux has been dubbed “Louisiana’s Rockin Fiddler.” His rollicking Cajun and zydeco rhythms never fail to serve up a good helping of spicy, high-energy Louisiana fun.

 

After this set of shows, Benoit again hits the road for a busy October and November, then another show at The Ryman paired again with Samantha Fish in December, and dates already scheduled from January through March, with much more to come.

 

COME GET YOU SOME!
