Coco Robicheaux Spiritland Band Tribute
Coco Robicheaux. the unofficial mayor of Frenchmen Street, was a unique, completely self-defined character and musician, a man who believed his music intermingled the spiritual and physical worlds. Nearly 2 years after his death, several of Robicheaux's friends and former bandmembers have come together to stage a fitting tribute to him. At the Blues Tent during the 2013 Jazzfest, veteran rock and soul singer Irene Sage -- "Queen Irene," in Robicheaux's lexicon -- led an ensemble that included guitarst Michael Sklar and pedal steel "wizard" Dave Easley. According to a nola.com review by Keith Spera: "With members of his family looking on, they resurrected several of his compositions and favorite songs at the Blues Tent. "Walking With The Spirit" cast Sage's big voice, equal parts grit and heart, in a flattering light, especially when it stood alongside two other female voices — including that of Robicheaux's widow, Danielle Laramie Arceneaux. Walter "Wolfman" Washington. Washington and Sage then teamed up for "We've Got a Secret," a song Sage originally wrote years ago for her defunct Irene & the Mikes, but that Robicheaux adopted as his own. Sage and Washington made for a potent duo as they traded lines and harmonized; Washington also scratched out one of his typically taut solos. Dorian Rush stepped up to belt Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released," which Robicheaux often performed. She first asked how many Dylan fans were in the audience. "This is for the 25 of you," she said. The moan of Easley's pedal steel guitar shared space with Mike Hood's church organ. Hood croaked Robicheaux's "Work of the Devil," his after-midnight growl reminiscent of Robicheaux crossed with a dash of Dr. John. "It's too early to hear that voice," he said, somewhat sheepishly, when he was done. The Robicheaux lexicon was laden with references to dark nights of the soul and interplay with the hereafter. "Spoonful," the Willie Dixon ode to the cost of primal cravings originally brought to

John Lisi & Delta Funk at the Blues in da Parish Festival 2013
John Lisi & Delta Funk Set to Perform at the 2013 Blues in da Parish Festival The 2013 Blues in da Parish Festival will be held on October 5, 2013 from 11 am to 6 pm at Docville Farm, 5125 E St Bernard Hwy in Violet, LA. This year's performers will include the eclectic funky blues stylings of John Lisi & Delta Funk, who will take the stage from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm. Named as one of the best guitarists in Louisiana by Offbeat Magazine, John takes his inspiration from guitar greats Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend and Alvin Lee. By the time he was 15, John was playing in bands in Tampa, FL before moving to Los Angeles. After a spending a few years doing TV studio work and performing with blues, funk, swing, reggae, rockabilly and even metal bands on stages across the United States, Europe, Canada, and Mexico, John finally made New Orleans home. Here his sultry voice and musical talent quickly helped John make a name for himself, and over the years he has played with notables like Dr. John, Cyril Neville, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Raful and Kenny Neal, Rockin' Tabby Thomas, Bryan Lee, Galactic, Tab Benoit, and Jason Ricci, to name just a few. John's debut album, "Blues For Chloe," which features guest blues legends Big Jay McNeely, Henry Gray, Larry Garner, and J. Monque'D, was released in 1999. This was followed the next year by John's first album with Delta Funk, "Preachin' To The Choir". "Can Ya' Dig It?!" was released in 2004, and in 2006, John co-wrote and played on Big Chief Monk Boudreaux's album, "Rising Sun." During 2007, John collaborated with Cody Dickenson of the North Mississippi Allstars and Jimbo Mathus of Elvis Costello and The Squirrel Nut Zippers on "Dead Cat Bounce." In 2008 John was prominently featured on the "Return of Eve" album by the West Coast rockabilly band Devil Doll. During the same year, John co-fronted a new band named Six Strings Down. Not surprisingly, John Lisi received the 2009 Slim Harpo Award for Blues Pioneer, honored a
