Shreveport native Chris McCaa with his band Professor Porkchop and The Dirty Dishes (Jason Coffield, guitar, sax, vocals; Shawn Stroope, bass; and Danielle Dyer, drums), is a popular fixture on the regional music scene. The Professor channels his many influences, at times evoking a “Randy Newman meets Dr. John” vibe appropriate given his Louisiana roots.

Benton native singer and guitarist Garrett Jacobs reached a new level of fame by competing on season sixteen of American Idol. He won fans with renditions of songs like The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games” and James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.”

New-Aged original soul band “J & The Causeways” were founded on a hot summer night in New Orleans at the famous Maple Leaf Bar. With a powerfully energetic rhythm section, tasteful songwriting, stunning lead vocals, and wonderfully intricate guitar and horn melodies, the group began sculpting a robust Festival-style sound.
