Thank You KCK! I love them as well, Glad Funky Pirate has FINALLY realized their mistake and is putting Willie back on the schedule. Hopefully they will soon add more nights.

Old Opera House has asked the Bonoffs to come back, but Janson (keyboard player and "boss") is having too much fun playing with Waylon Thibodeaux at VooDoo Vib, so that may not happen. . Alex is also still playing at VooDoo Vibe with a newly formed band... they're doing great.

Alex plays on Sunday after Waylon...5:00 p.m. I have seen him and his band at other times there also, but can't remember days/times for sure except for Sunday.

Thanks for the info, skt54. Unfortunately, we wont be there on the Sunday for our next trip (just there Friday & Saturday night) so I'll ask when we get there to see if they will be playing when we are there. If you happen to get the name of the band he plays the next time you are there when he is playing, can you let me know. Thanks again.

I can't wait to see and hear Big Willie "The Hambone" Lockett and the All Purpose Blues Band again. Great music and what a fun bunch of guys. Very entertaining. I first saw them them years ago when they were playing at the old 544 club on Bourbon St. My wife and I have seen them many times since then but I'll always remember how much fun my lovely wife and I had that first time.

Just got an email from Paul Boudreaux that the dates I posted are not correct. He said a schedule is being worked out and he will let me know. I will post ASAP when I get the info.

There are several bands in New Orleans that describe themselves as Blues Bands but these guys are the real deal. Between Mark Penton and the Pentones, Willie Lockett and the All Purpose Blues Band and Big Al Carson and the Blues Masters the Funky Pirate has a Blues Monopoly on Bourbon Street.
