Only In NOLA: 2 Years After Katrina

Thursday :: August 30

Thursday at Tipitina's featured a double bill of Gradoux and Groovesect featuring Alfred "Uganda" Roberts. Gradoux features Kevin O'Day on drums, Westbank Mike on guitar and vocals and Scott Jackson on bass. Their set could best be described as swamp-funk. Check out their debut CD, Pronounced (gra-DOO). Groovesect is a collection of young local musicians who were joined by the legendary "Uganda" Roberts. Roberts is best known for his percussion with the late Professor Longhair. Seeing him on the same Tipitina's stage that he once shared with Fess was a true thrill.
