Creole String Beans

Creole String Beans is a swinging sextet playing New Orleans rock ’n roll from the glory days of J&M Studios when local R&B artists dominated the charts. They will unearth obscure instrumentals like Edgar Blanchard’s “Blues Cha Cha” then whip up the dancers with the crazy swamp-ska of an original like “Boom Boom”.

Rob Savoy (bass/vocals) and Rick Olivier (guitar/vocals) front the band with Brian Rini (keyboards/vocals) and Mike Sipos (drums/vocals) rounding out the rhythm section. The powerhouse “Terrytown Horns” add punch and brass with Travis Blotsky on tenor, and Derek Huston on baritone sax. The veteran outfit boasts well over a century of combined musical experience.

With Olivier and Savoy’s Acadiana roots the Creole String Beans dive deep into the world of “swamp pop”, the triplet-heavy sound popular across Southwest Louisiana. Cookie and the Cupcakes, Doug Sahm, and Tommy McLain songs pepper their dance-oriented set lists.

But the ‘Beans also have a knack for writing clever originals in the local idiom. Brian Rini’s “Sally Put A Spell On Me” is a funky tale of a voodoo beauty with other-worldly charms and his “Beautiful Thing” wouldn’t be out of place on a Stax soul ballad compilation. Olivier’s “St. Gabriel” is a swamp pop stomper about love and redemption and his “Funky Spillway” invents a new zydeco dance for the shrimp boot crowd. A high-water mark for the band was having Allen Toussaint join them onstage for their fiery rendering of Ernie K-Doe’s “Here Come The Girls”, a typical rocking choice for the group. Awards include Offbeat Magazine’s Roots Rock Album of the Year for their 2011 release “Shrimp Boots and Vintage Suits”.

Geno Delafose (born February 6, 1971 in Eunice, Louisiana) is a zydeco accordionist and singer.

In 1994, he debuted with album French Rockin’ Boogie on Rounder Records. The name of this album also became the name of his band with whom he still plays with today.
