The New Orleans icon brings his band Walter “Wolfman” Washington & the Roadmasters to the Leaf! Don't miss the searing guitar work and soulful vocals have defined the Crescent City’s unique musical hybrid of R&B, funk and the blues since he formed his first band in the 1970s.

Of the original Roadmasters, only bassist Jack Cruz remains. But the other, current members -- drummer Wayne Maureau, saxophonist Jimmy Carpenter and trumpeter Antonio Gambrell -- are all multiyear veterans. Maureau, who grew up in eastern New Orleans and who teaches jazz at the college level, was tutored by founding Roadmasters drummer Wilbert "Junkyard Dog" Arnold.
