Gretna Heritage Festival

- Gregg Allman Band: The founding member of The Allman Brothers Band lets his hair down even further in a set of bluesy, Southern rock stompers such as “Midnight Rider” and “Whipping Post.”
- The Guess Who: The long-running band specializes in classic rock done Canadian style, which is why favorites including “American Woman” and “These Eyes” were originally recorded in a vat of poutine.
- Big Smo: The artist formerly known as John Lee Smith shares hick-hop raps about trucks, barbecue, and whiskey that sound like Hank Williams Jr. and the Nappy Roots after they were fused in a teleporter accident.
Also Appearing: Cherub Phosphorescent DJ Wick-it the Instigator Robert Randolph & The Family Marc Broussard
