Artist: Cowboy Mouth
Title: Cowboy Mouth @ The 2007 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – May 5, 2007
Genre: Big Easy Party Vibe

After a year spent mostly on the road bringing the Big Easy party vibe to the rest of the nation and keeping New Orleans in the national (and musical) consciousness, Cowboy Mouth came home for the biggest musical party around- New Orlean’s world-famous Jazz Fest.

Reunited with guitarist Vance DeGeneres and supported by thousands of fans and friends, Mouth earned the honor of a personal introduction by ‘Fest producer Quint Davis, who offered one of the world’s hardest partying bands to the “hardest working audience.”

After regaling them with a croon-y rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” frenetic frontman Fred LeBlanc made sure the sweaty crowd earned their title by rousing them into a hard-kicking and hard-clapping take on “Light it on Fire” that featured an appropriately scorching solo by John Thomas Griffith and the first of many traditional band name chants.

Having beaten his skins as if he had found them in bed with his girlfriend, LeBlanc let a drum loop take over for the flat fist-pumper “Easy,” after which Thomas took over again for the pounding ballad “Here I Sit in Prison.” As bassist Sonia Tetlow set the pace, LeBlanc’s call for rhythm got the entire crowd clapping as the band scraped through a take on Bo Diddley’s “You Don’t Love Me” that ended with a front of stage string explosion and a harmonically soulful finish. Thomas’ sharp keys signaled the arrival of the heart-felt parade anthem “On the Avenue,” a touching and devoted tribute to the band’s hometown.

After the mood had been appropriately solemnized, Mouth kicked it up again with the Punk rager “Joe Strummer,” supported again by Tetlow’s low end and the frenzied rhythms of the crowd. After sneaking into The Who’s “My Generation,” the band asked for two and four help for “Disconnected” before jumping into the spoon-fed Reggae vibe of “Jill.”

Always one to end things on a high note, the band raged through “Love of My Life” and echoed the audience’s emotion with “This Much Fun” before demanding that the titular gal from their fan favorite “Jenny Says” “let it go” and get yer ass back to Jazz Fest!”

Even after this traditional closer was done, the crowd clapped on, refusing to leave until the band returned to regale them with a stripped-down but still spot-on renditon of Springsteen’s “Born to Run” that left everyone exhausted and smiling.

While it is debatable as to who actually worked harder, it was clear that everyone had fun. And that is what Fest and Cowboy Mouth are all about!
