Embodying the spirit of Louisiana on many levels, Tab Benoit has been calling Colorado home this month. In an effort to help rebuild his beloved hurricane-ravaged bayou region (and spread the gospel of the blues), Benoit and his band have played their way through the high country, including at benefits in Aspen and Vail, and are now pulling into Denver for a night of musical healing. A disciple of the Cajun-blues tradition, Benoit calls himself "a new kid from the old school." Taking cues from elder statesmen such as Buddy Guy, the Neville Brothers and Elmore James, he'll lay down some dirty guitar work, gritty vocals and plenty of bayou-flavored soul, while bassist Carl Dufrene and drummer Darryl White help round out Benoit's acclaimed guitar attack. Let the healing begin.
