Creole String Beans

The Creole String Beans are the quintessential New Orleans jukebox band playing favorites ranging from Fats Domino, Frankie Ford and Dr. John to Louis Prima, Chuck Berry and Earl King, while putting their own youthful exuberance into each song. An all-star band made up of long time friends and accomplished musicians from many of the most adored regional groups, The Creole String Beans, released their first-ever CD recently at the world famous Rock n Bowl in New Orleans. Specializing in golden era Rhythm & Blues and Swamp Pop from the 50’s and 60’s, the band strives to keep alive those party classics that South Louisiana still dances to at weddings, crawfish boils and tailgate parties.

The Creole String Beans have been performing at local clubs and festivals since 2004. Garnering a growing following through their epic performances at the New Orleans Jazz Fest, French Quarter Festival, Family Gras in Metairie, Bayou Boogaloo, Ogden Museum of Art and many other locations, these retro-roots rockers fill the dance floor wherever they perform.

Offbeat Magazine awarded Creole String Bean’s CD Shrimp Boots & Vintage Suits the Best Roots Rock Album of 2011 award!
