It's time to get your dancing shows back on, the Lil' Band O' Gold is heading back for more! The Louisiana supergroup who won the hearts and soles of all at Bluesfest in Byron Bay at Easter are returning to Australia for shows all over the country.
Lil' Band O Gold is the coming together of a bunch of legendary players and writers from the deep swamps under the corralling and love of band leader CC Adcock and accordion champion Steve Riley. The band features singer and drummer Warren Storm, the man considered the grandfather of swamp pop. Add much covered songwriter David Egan on piano, the creativity of Dickie Landry on saxophone, with wind support from Pat Breaux, bass man Dave Ranson and West Australia's very own Lucky Oceans on pedal steel, and you have one hell of a show!
By now you may have seen the coming together of this magical group in the acclaimed documentary, "The Promised Land".
