Live from Louisiana
Sun, Dec.23 | Curley Taylor's Last Stand
Last call for Zydeco! That's right, one final no-holds-barred show before Highway 99 Blues Club closes (after Dec.31) with Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble. Come show your appreciation for the Club and for Curley, and get your zydeco on! Show 6pm (doors 4pm), $20. Click for tix. It looks like this show will sell out, so please do get yours reserved early. Here's the writeup the Gator Boy did for the first show Curley ever performed at Highway 99, in 2006: "Smooth, sensuous, and sophisticated, Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble bring you the very best of the emerging Louisiana sound. Blending old school zydeco with the blues of Clifton Chenier and the soul of Sam Cooke, Curley crafts a deep, distinctive groove that is aurally delightful, highly danceable, and totally rocks the house! This is one band you'll be talking about for a long time. Come see for yourself!" Be sure to like the Gator Boy Productions page on FB for all the latest news.
