0094--Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie

video
Angelle's Whiskey River Landing is in Henderson, LA, on the bayou side of the levee. It's an old dance club with a glassed-in dance floor that gives you an almost 360-degree view of the bayou (in this video, you can sort of see the cypress trees out there behind the band). They're open Sundays for live music from 4pm-8pm--and the place is always packed to the roof. The plywood dance floor is worn to a glossy shine from all the dancing. This Sunday, the band was Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie, who always put on an amazing show; every member of the band can play and sing their butts off. (Coincidentally, we ran into the only other couple who was dancing at Friday night's Corey Ledet show; they were collecting the cover at the door for this show. Nice people--and great dancers!)
