Things have been
hoppin' at the BBC this Spring. Full houses, packed dance floor
and shows for the ages. Jason Ricci on Friday delivered one
of the most mesmerizing shows the ol' jook has seen. Jason and
lead guitarist John Lisi (from Delta Funk) teamed up for an
awe inspiring performance. This week we have more 'Nawlins funk
and swamp groove as we close out April.
- Friday April 28th at 9:00 PM.
Friday, April 28, 'Nawlins ZydeFunk, lead by Lafayette Louisiana's
all world bassist Charlie Wooton (Royal Southern Brotherhood)
, and featuring Tallahassee's Zydeco meister John Babich (aka
JB), brings their funky stuff back to the BBC. This ain't your
daddy's Zydeco. Indeed, the name says it all. These guys pack
lots of swampy 'Nawlin's funky rhythms, Zydeco, Cajun, Jazz,
reggae and funk--cookin' up what the band aptly calls "A
Gumbo of Louisiana Grooves". This stuff is guaronteed to
get the feets movin', the booties shakin', and keepin' the dance
floor full. High energy party music that's been keepin' 'Nawlins
and Hotlanta hot for a long time. In their past BBC shows, the
band kept folks movin' and groovin' all night long.
This is the fun stuff! Et toi!

Saturday, April 29 at 9:00pm, Packrat's Smokehouse ("The
Men of the Swamp") emerges from the smoky vapors of the
north Florida swamps! This is Florida's original hoodoo, voodoo
darkwater swamp blues band that comes in from the tannin, snake
and mosquito infested wetlands. Make no mistake, there is no
other band like them with Packrat's (Anthony Thompson) gravelly
voice, haunting harp, larger than life appearance and garb (sometimes
a full length leather duster and black hat) providing the setting
for real Florida swamp blues. Packrat's backed up by original
band members Robert "Lighting Boy" "Top"
Thomas on guitar and vocals, and the venerable "Pop"
Watson on drums. Pop has played with the likes of Rufus Thomas,
The Drifters, The Temptations, Martha & The Vandellas and
Arthur Conley among others. They are joined by former band member
Kenny Sly on bass providing deep bottom bass grooves.
Their music is haunting, mesmerizing, low down and spooky that'll
lure you to the dance floor. Can't ask for a better setting
for this hot, steamy moonshine music! Really good, entertaining
