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.

Cyril Neville is one of the famous "Neville Brothers" family and band, was a founding member of the Meters, the Neville Brothers (band), and has led his own bands as well as been a sideman for various other musicians (like Dr. John for example). A living legend in New Orleans music circles.
