Louisiana blue-based roots rock. Gumbo Funk. Blue Merlot is a band with roots in the bayou country; five lifetimes of listening, playing, living the rhythms and grooves of the bayous and swamps. Add some New Orleans funk, swamp pop, R & B, jazz, soulful Gospel stylings with Cajun seasoning and you have a sound that is beyond any single genre... and distinctly Louisiana. We play at clubs, festivals, private parties, restaurants, and concerts, and welcome inquiries from near and far. Duo or full band available. For more information, or for a press kit, please contact us at bluemerlot (at) bellsouth.net or bluemerlot (at) bluemerlot.com. We'd love to hear from you. Bienvenue, nos amis, chez nous....et decouvre le funk!
