NEW ORLEANS MUSIC FESTIVAL SHOWCASES LOCAL BANDS 

This year’s Pinch A Palooza features a variety of musical talent and a range of genres, from rock, funk and pop to R&B, and soul. Headlining the crawfish festival are Louisiana natives Cowboy Mouth. The popular local band achieved mainstream success with their hit song “Jenny Says” and have been dishing up their unique style of “rock & roll gumbo” that’s rooted in the party-friendly and high-energy spirit of the Big Easy. Sometimes compared to the Animal character from “The Muppet Show,” band leader and singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Fred LeBlanc is sure to bring a fun and lively experience to the crowd.
