THE HOODOO LOUNGERS ARE OBSESSED WITH THE MUSIC OF NEW ORLEANS . . .

from the gut bucket jazz of Louis Armstrong to up to date street sounds of Trombone Shorty – the HooDoo's just don't copy – they have created their own distinct sound by blending the many genres of New Orleans music into their own gumbo of sound.

Gospel, R&B, Jazz and Funk are all flavors in the stew.

Louisiana Lullaby

One of the most popular songs on the "Head & Heart & Hips" CD

Listen to the mockingbird singing in the pecan tree
Listen to the mockingbird singing in the pecan tree
The buzzing of the blue tailed fly and the honey bee

Cicadas singing to the rhythm of a bullfrog croakin'
Cicadas singing to the rhythm of a bullfrog croakin'
Crow of the rooster heralding a new morn' broken

I'm gonna wander on down to the riverside
Sit back and watch the water roll on
All things shall be sanctified
It won't be long
Rock me pretty mama 'neith the hazy southern sky
Rock me pretty mama to the Louisiana lullaby

A harmonica cries and a lonesome guitar plays
The sun gonna shine in my back door some day
Wind gonna rise and blow these blues away

I hear a brass band playing a closer walk with thee
I hear a brass band playing  a closer walk with thee
Some things fade some will ever be

Bell in the steeple is ringing 
Pure and clear and strong
Choir in the church house singing
It won't be long
Rock me pretty mama 'neith the hazy southern sky
Rock me pretty mama to the Louisiana lullaby

Off in the distance a lonesome whistle moans
Off in the distance a lonesome whistle moans
Echoes of steel hammers on rocks and stone

I hear a song long forgotten a drifting through the air
I hear a song long forgotten a drifting through the air
Louisiana lullaby whispered like a prayer

Been a long time waiting
To hear that gospel song
Soon I'll be celebrating
It won't be long
Rock me pretty mama 'neith the hazy southern sky
Rock me pretty mama to the Louisiana lullaby
