This group is as much fun to watch as hear
Their name is taken from a street in the lower ninth ward in New Orleans where these guys first got together. The street is in the Holy Cross Neighborhood that is inhabited by many of the buskers. They perform a music that fuses Traditional Country music with New Orleans R&B.
The Long Time Goners
If you like country music, you will love these guys. They put out a great "honky tonk" country sound with energy and drive.
