Tony Trahan & the Bluekrewe
Tony Trahan and the BlueKrewe play a mix of Swampy Louisiana Roots Music straight from the Bayous of South Louisiana. Like a good Cajun Gumbo they like to add some different seasonings to the pot, so, while cooking they will add a pinch of Zesty Zydeco, some Cajun Injections, some Swampy Bayou Blues, a bit of Mardi Gras flavoring and a heaping helping of New Orleans Funk.
