Bourbon Street Preachers
The band was formed in 2006 to work on a sound that would reflect the rich variety of music emanating from New Orleans and the wider reaches of Louisiana and the Mississipi Delta. Our name is taken from the famous Bourbon Street, New Orleans where live bands play in around 30 different bars every night of the week, supplemented by fabulous street artists and buskers. New Orleans of course is also home to some of the biggest and best Jazz and Blues festivals on the scene.
Playing a mixture of cover tunes and an increasing number of self penned numbers the band is heavily influenced by such great performers as Willie Dixon, Elmore James, Fats Domino and Clifton Chenier, contributing the best of the Blues and Zydeco. We have a residency at the Lloyds Hotel in Chorlton, Manchester, where we have played every Thursday since April 2007. The B.S.P.’s are gradually building a reputation as a band offering good solid entertainment through their performances around the North West English region and beyond.
