Results: Battle of New Orleans Ladies

Wayne Toups won my battle of the bands convincingly 11-4. A few of you thought Wayne Toups was more authentic perhaps because of the more Zydeco sound. Ironically Tab's version featured many of the members of LeRoux the band who originally did the song. Wasn't my intent but it was the only studio recording I could find.

Wayne Toups is an Award Winning artist. His Battle of the Bands victory certainly highlights a career with a Grammy Award, Gulf Coast Hall of Fame, Louisiana Hall of Fame, Cajun French Hall of Fame, and a few Offbeat Magazine Awards.

His accordion skills have been featured on Country megahits like Mark Chestnut's "It Sure is Monday" and Alan Jackson's "Little Bitty."

Here he is with "Take My Hand"....

"Please Explain"

The Battle was fun I got to share a song I like and you all got to vote on which one you liked best. I'll be thinking up a new battle for March 1st. In between feel free to drop in and see what else I might be blogging about.

That was indeed a decisive battle, but it was probably a matter of whim or timing or something regarding many of our votes because both versions of the song were pretty good. My vote could have gone either way.
