South Louisiana Music


The Edge

The following MIDIS are what I call South Louisiana music, what my good friend Neil Madere called belly-rubbing music and Marvin Vicknair calls belt buckle-shining music. Sally Lightfoot says this is the music her crowd danced the Sulphur Shuffle to.  AccordionMan calls it Swamp Pop. Whatever you want to call it, if you go into any honkytonk from Opelousas south to Grand Isle on a Friday or Saturday night, you'll find local bands playing these tunes, in this style. The rest of the week you'll find customers dancing to these tunes on the jukebox. This style of music came to south Louisiana in the late 1940s and early 1950s and never left.  Get yourself a cold beer and enjoy the music.
