**The Chee-Weez perform "This Is How We Do It"** Gripping mics and shredding through iconic riffs, slathered in face paint and sweat, the five members of Chee-Weez send classic and contemporary rock songs hurtling toward nightly crowds. The band unleashes hits by AC/DC, Journey, Bon Jovi, and Joan Jett tunes for throngs of fans who scream along to the lyrics. Meanwhile, their guitars gleam in the light of stage pyrotechnics, the lightning bugs attracted by the pyrotechnics, and a 17-foot video wall. Audiences never know exactly what tunes to expect—a single set could include everything from Bruno Mars to Maroon 5 to Barry White. ####Foret Tradition The songs Foret Tradition covers are all over the map, in terms of both geography and genre. But the band keeps circling back to its Louisiana home. The musicians call the total effect "swamp pop," a heady blend of R&B, soul, funk, and zydeco that Brandon and Ryan Foret have been refining since they recorded their first album in 1999. Over the years, the band has welcomed new members and burned through hundreds of saxophones, but some things have stayed the same. The group's virtuosity in covering the likes of Dr. John, Percy Sledge, Ike and Tina Turner, and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown has made Foret Tradition a perennial presence at concerts and festivals.
House of Blues New Orleans
At home in the French Quarter, the House of Blues New Orleans keeps its heritage ever near with a metal box of mud from the Mississippi Delta hidden beneath its stage. Around this, more than 290 pieces of folk art—one of the largest collections in the country—decorate the walls. Also bringing its Southern charm and homestyle feel are hardwood floors, no fewer than three bars, and two levels for concert viewing.
