    My mom used to sneak into Signorellis in St. Martinville to see him when she was a kid.

    Otis may have died before I was born but that doesnt mean I wasn't raised with him in my ear.

    Johnny Allan, Warren Storm, Boogie Kings, Percy all that stuff as well as Belton Richard , Camey Doucet etc.

    I'm 48

    The Boogie Kings. There's a group that could bring it. Ah the days of GG Shin, Jerry "Count" Jackson, & Highway 90 with clubs like the Big Oaks and the Circle club.

    I'm sure you know who Wayne Toups is, my parents at times were the only people in the place while he played.

    I had to Google the game. Looks like he became popular after I joined the Air Force and left La in the mid '60s.

    I thought I had heard him before. He used to play at one of the casinos here. This is more swamp pop than rock and roll.

    There was one song where every time I saw him GG Shinn would hold a sheet of paper with the lyrics while he sang.

    You forgot TK Hulin and GG Shinn. Edgar Winter used to show up there to. Signorellis was a rough place sometimes. Once had a girl try to kick my ass in there. Wound up dancing with her later and almost getting into a fight with her boyfriend. The Boogie Kings were a kick ass band for years.

    It's gone now but you can still hear a lot of swamp pop at Pat's Atchafalaya Club in Henderson. Bands like Louisiana Red, Foret Tradition and Nic L Beer show up. Warren Storm shows up now and then. If you want to recapture the feel and sounds of the golden days of swamp pop and the days of Signorellis try stopping at Red's Levee Bar in Catahoula. It's like going back in time there. I usually drop by for a beer after I fish the Basin and share my catch with everyone.

    Say hello to Liz for me if you go by there.

    A little TK
