Photos from 'Shake It or Break It'

A few more photos from my recent US road trip - this time from the three Ponderosa Stomp 'Shake It or Break It' shows at the Three Keys in the Ace Hotel, New Orleans, organised by Dr Ike. Some of next year's acts were announced and I'm hoping to go, but waiting for some more names to emerge.
Support act at the first show were the Fortifiers, an impressive  blues band from New Orleans,
Main act was 84 year old bluesman Leo 'Bud' Welch, who I first saw at the Juke Joint East in Wapping two years ago, soon after his first album was released.
The second evening was brilliant, with Lil Buck and the Top Cats backing the artists throughout.
Members of the band included the Lafayette Marquis, Charles (C C) Adcock, and Reginald Dural, son of Stanley 'Buckwheat Zydeco' Dural.
Here is Barbara Lynn, who was superb. Barbara is one of the acts announced for next year's Stomp.
 Also on next show will be the Texas wild man, Roy Head.
Here's one of me with Roy.
The final show featured as support act Daddy Long Legs, an excellent sixties style R and B band from New York.
Star of the night was Guitar 'Lightning' Lee
Finally, here's one of the group: L-R Nick Cobban, Ronnie Cook, Dave Carroll, Alan Lloyd, Lee Wilkinson.
