Big Chief Monk Boudreaux

The Voice of the Wetlands Allstars tour came through Colorado Springs yesterday and I had the opportunity to shoot it and review it for the Gazette, and to hang out and talk with the musicians at a meet and greet and later on backstage.

If you're into the New Orleans style of funky cajun zydeco (ala the Meters) - there were some incredibly awesome jams during the night. Each of the performers that are touring lead bands in their own right and all have multiple CDs to their credit.

Monk here is the real deal: Big Chief of the Golden Eagles Mardis Gras Indian Tribe in New Orleans. He spends hours a day each and every day sewing on beads to his costume.
