Porterhouse Bob and Down to the Bone gave an excellent performance. The band had a lot of energy and the music was good old Cajun music with a hint of the blues. The different horn instruments, played by the band, give them a distinctive edge over any performer you may be looking to hire. They are really good. Great job guys. Thanks, Max Klingler LSU Alumni Association
