Description

On July 27, 2018, Yvette Landry’s new album was released, but, it is South Louisiana after all, so there MUST be a party to celebrate the release. Thus, Yvette got in touch with Jim and Christy at The Whirlybird and a special release party was born. The Whirlybird is the perfect backdrop for a music video, soooo...

The Project: Louisiana Lovin’ is a project recorded by Yvette Landry & The Jukes featuring Roddie Romero. It grew from a previous recording session where Yvette and Roddie remade the only number one hit to come out of Lafayette, Louisiana. Yvette recapped how it all came about…

“I had a duo gig and my regular guy couldn’t be there, so I asked Roddie if he would cover. He said, ‘yes’…And a rehearsal was scheduled. About 30 minutes into the rehearsal, I asked Roddie if he would sing a few tunes. (I mean, who wouldn’t want to hear Roddie sing?!) His response was, ‘Let’s do a duet!’ I asked what he had in mind and he said, ‘I’ve always wanted to do this song, but I haven’t found the right person to do it with. Let’s give it a try.’ And we proceeded to rehearse Dale & Grace’s rendition of I’m Leaving It Up To You. It was magic! We finished rehearsal, played our gig, did the song, and both left smiling. A few months later, I was in the studio recording my CD, “Me & T-Coe’s Country”, and I can’t quite remember how it came about, but I got to talking to Eric Adcock, Roddie Romero’s keyboard player, and he suggested we record the song. He suggested recording it at the same studio that Dale and Grace recorded it—La Louisiane Studios. I asked my rhythm section, Josef Butts and my son Trevor Landry to record with us. Eric also suggested that we take pictures and video, if nothing else for posterities sake. My budget was small, so I asked one of my students to come to the studio to film. He brought his brother, and I paid them with a hamburger! Check out the video…they did a tremendous job!”

Yvette & Roddie’s rendition of Dale and Graces, “I’m Leaving It Up To You,” became a local hit…not only with area fans, but with Roddie and Yvette as well. The two knew that they needed to record more together. While on a three-week tour of Germany, Yvette and Roddie put their heads together and found an available date. Yvette made a call to Dockside Studios - the hidden, 12 time Grammy Winning studio, gem - in Maurice, Louisiana to see if the studio was available. It was.

So, Y'all, get ready to strap it on, Saturday night, August 18th. 7 PM
