Free Download: "It's That HooDoo" by Johnny Chimes & The Mardi Gras Band

Mad City Sessions - Thursday, February 20th at 6pm 

Artist
: Johnny Chimes & The Mardi Gras Band
Song: "It's That HooDoo"


Just in time for Mardi Gras, the sounds of Johnny Chimes and the Mardi Gras Band will instantly transport you from cold State Street to the heart of Bourbon Street in New Orleans. This MadCity Session is going to be a Mardi Gras party (complete with authentic music and New Orleans-inspired foods), so come dressed in your best green, gold, and purple party outfits (keep 'em family-friendly, though).

About the artist: Although Johnny Chimes resides in Madison, WI, his pumping left hand and Cajun-flavored voice might as well live in Louisiana! With influences ranging from Dr. John and Professor Longhair to Leon Russeel and Mose Allison, Johnny Chimes is a jambalaya of boogie-woogie piano, finger-style guitar, and sweet southern soul-laced vocals. Having been a career musician for more than 35 years, Chimes is an accomplished pianist, guitarist, and songwriter with the retro-cool vibe to make your whiskey taste better and your problems seem like they're just one good blues song away from vanishing into the night.
