Rue Boogaloo - Blues, Funk and Soul all live down on Boogaloo Street! Rue Boogaloo's members have spent their lives playing behind a who's who of Louisiana's Blues and Zydeco musicians.
Marty Christian (Henry Gray and the Cats, Thomas “Big Hat” Fields) , Lee Zeno (Buckwheat Zydeco, BlackTop Records, Snooks Eaglin, Irma Thomas, Bobby Parker, Guitar Shorty) and Frank Kincel (Modern Jazz Movement, Henry Gray and the Cats) finally came together to create a sound of their own. Living Blues calls their all original, self-titled debut CD (2012) “a delicious stew of blues and funk … that at album’ s end, leaves this listener hungry for more.” Starting out as a quartet, Rue Boogaloo grooves on as a trio after the sudden loss of their long time band mate, the late harmonica player Andy Cornett in February, 2012. Now the South Louisiana sounds of Rue Boogaloo keep the toes tapping and the body’s swaying with original and classic songs that inhabit everything from blues shuffles, southern soul, Louisiana funk and dancehall swing. Come check out the band for yourself and get a copy of the CD that Louisiana KBON says “"if you’re a blues lover, this CD is a must have for your blues collection... They cover it all!"
