About the band

Walter "Wolfman" Washington cut his teeth backing up some of the best singers and performers in New Orleans history before putting together his longtime band, the Roadmasters, who have been burning up local and national stages since the 1980s. His style combines rhythm and blues, blues, New Orleans funk and modern jazz into one unique sound. 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 in a Walter "Wolfman" Washington performance.

Capacity is limited and the event is designed for a standing audience. Outside chairs, food and beverages are not permitted on the premises. In the event of rain or inclement weather, visit or call (504) 523-4662 for updates.
