    Tab Benoit and the Voice of the Wetlands All Stars

    Louisiana’s #1 roots music export and Grammy nominee Tab Benoit has assembled a stellar ensemble of fellow New Orleans musicians, including N.O.

    Louisiana’s #1 roots music export and Grammy nominee Tab Benoit has assembled a stellar ensemble of fellow New Orleans musicians, including N.O. Legends, The Meters and Neville Brothers, Cyril Neville, fiddler Waylon Thibodeaux, influential New Orleans drummer Johnny Vidacovich, harmonica/accordion player Jumpin’ Johnny Sansone, and New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, to forge a musical plea for the fragile eco-system that is the increasingly depleted wetlands surrounding their hometown. The band’s music sounds like Louisiana Rock, Funk, Soul, and Cajun classics that have risen from years of music history and the environment that the music comes from.

    The Voice of the Wetlands Organization formed the first national out-reach program to educate and make the public aware that Louisiana was in danger; the refineries that line the coast of Louisiana were unprotected due to years of neglect by locals and oil companies. The Voice of the Wetlands All-stars has appeared at both the Democratic and Republican Conventions and appears annually at the Voice of the Wetlands Festival in Houma, Louisiana. If there is one group that encapsulates the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, it is the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars, an improbable cooperative with a cause.
