Overview

Overview Walter Wolfman Washington Mardi Gras Blues Party

Celebrate Fat Tuesday a few days early with one of the masters of New Orleans rhythm and blues, the great Walter Wolfman Washington.

Walter “Wolfman” Washington has been a mainstay on the New Orleans music scene.  He cut his teeth backing up some of the best singers and performers in New Orleans history before putting together his long time band The Roadmasters who have been burning down and burning up local and national stages since their first gigs in the 1980s. His guitar style combines both rhythm and blues, blues, New Orleans funk, and modern jazz into a way of playing that is uniquely his.  His singing is emotional and heartfelt.  His guitar work is intricate, intimate, and full.  There is a little Bobby Blue Bland, a little Kenny Burrell, a little George Benson, a little church, and a lot of New Orleans charm and experience in a Walter Wolfman Washington performance. They are known for doing their own soulful originals and then tackling some great unsung covers such as Johnny Guitar Watson’s “You Can Stay But That Noise Got To Go,” Otis Redding’s “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” and  Bill Withers’ “Use Me.” And in this day and age of musicians imitating the past or trying to recreate it, The Wolfman stands out as a musician steeped in the history but completely contemporary.  Few musical acts, if any, do what he does.  He is real, authentic, and unique.
