Yvette Landry and The Jukes, Downtown Alive!, Parc International, Lafayette, March 22, 2019
Yvette Landry and The Jukes, featuring Roddie Romero, performed at Downtown Alive! in Parc International, Lafayette, March 22, 2019, on a beautiful spring evening. Almost all of the shots in this album were taken during the first part of the show before sunset. I tried a few shots after the band break when the only illumination was provided by overhead lights high above the stage, but just about everyone’s face was backlit and in shadow. I didn’t want to use flash, so I put away my camera.

As the name “Jukes” suggests, Yvette Landry has teamed with Roddie Romero, members of his band The Hub City All-Stars, and other top musicians like Beau Thomas to perform songs from the jukebox era going back to the fifties. The repertoire also includes originals and other songs that recall those unforgettable jukebox recordings, drawing on rockabilly, swamp pop, blues and other favorite Louisiana genres.
