Louisiana’s LeRoux

Louisiana's LeRoux

A Treasure of the South... Their 1978 Capitol press release read: "LeRoux takes its name from the Cajun French term for the thick and hearty gravy base that's used to make a gumbo." Louisiana's LeRoux (the first album) was a musical gumbo that blended various instruments and arrangements for some spicy, mouth-watering pop-rock. Using blues, R&B, funk, jazz, rock, and Cajun as their base, their Southern anthem "New Orleans Ladies," voted Song of the Century by Gambit Magazine, simmered with the laid-back feel of the "Big Easy," evoking images of Bourbon Street and the bayou. That song, together with their smash hit "Nobody Said It Was Easy," brings LeRoux daily airplay from Washington, DC to Baton Rouge, and they remain cult heroes to this day.
