The Brickyard is situated in the heart of the Dauphin Street Entertainment District, making its location an easy stumble for those wandering the streets after the Dauphin Street Beer Festival. For this special evening, The Brickyard is bringing Magnolia Bayou back to its stage for a batch of rock jams that should last well past midnight.
This Mississippi-based band will be bringing the sounds of its self-titled debut album, recorded at The Music Shed in New Orleans. With this release, Magnolia Bayou has created an eclectic sound that could only come from “the Birthplace of American Music.”
The album’s opening track, “When a Good Dog Does Bad,” is a perfect example. A tidal wave of riffs bounce between rock and funk as vocals filled with soulful blues power through each measure. Magnolia Bayou’s cover of the Black Sabbath stoner anthem “Fairies Wear Boots” should not be missed.
