Gregg Martinez and the Delta Kings
Gregg Martinez, who's blend of blues, R&B and Swamp Pop music he describes as "bayou blues and Creole soul", was born and raised and still lives in the Cajun country of South Louisiana where he began singing in church at the age of eight.  Ten years later, he was singing professionally.  His powerhouse voice, which has been compared to Sam Cooke and Luther Vandross, took him from the bars and nightclubs of the bayou country to some of the finest resorts, casinos, and clubs throughout the nation. The late Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes, upon seeing him perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 2005, called Gregg one of America's greatest hidden treasures.   His talent is the stuff of legend and even after more than 30 years, Gregg is better than ever. He has performed throughout the US and abroad and has released nine recordings and his music is aired on radios in the US and abroad.  He has shared the stage with many notable artists including Stevie Wonder, Foreigner, BTO, Dobie Gray, Shirley Caesar, Patti LaBelle, Bobby "Blue" Bland to name a few. He was recently selected to the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. Gregg and his band, the Delta Kings will be an entertaining and exciting group to play on the Patterson Cypress Sawmill Festival stage!

Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Swamp Band
Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band have been rockin' the party scene worldwide with their style for the last twenty years.  Chubby, being a third generation Zydeco musician, formed his band in January, 1989.  Getting his inspiration from musical greats such as Clifton Chenier, BB King, Bobby Blue Bland and Ray Charles and adding a dose of 70's funk, his music became a blend of what he now refers to as "high energy, swamp funky zydeco.    Chubby has taken his music worldwide and has shared the stage with musicians such as Santana, Eddie Money, And Travis Tritt, and many more.  He was also one of the main characters along with Tab Benoit, Amanda Shaw and Allen Toussaint on the IMAX film "Hurricane on the Bayou" in 2006.  Come out and enjoy a Chubby party 'cause a Chubby party don't stop!

9:30PM
South 70 Band
Welcome to South 70 Band! They are a seven piece band who that were all born and bred in south Louisiana. They started out as just a group of friends jamming together in the shed and somewhere along the way they went from not sounding too badly to decent enough that people wanted to hear them (which still blows their minds). South 70 Band plays a mixture of Zydeco, swamp pop, Cajun, country and more! The members are all local boys from the small town of Pierre Part, LA. There's one street that runs north and south through town, Louisiana Highway 70. Their town may be small but it's all heart!

12:00PM
90 Degrees West
Somebody once said "If you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life".  90 Degrees West is evidence of that.  They are a 7 piece, high energy, modern country band based out of New Orleans.  The band covers such artists Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland, Jaison Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride, George Strait, Carrie Underwood and many more.  90 Degrees West also has a library of original music.  They have had the pleasure of playing some great venues including the Bayou Country Music Fest.  Their goal is for the audience not only to have a great time, but to feel as if they are watching the artists live.  To achieve this, 90 Degrees West has brought together seven talented musicians, each one bringing many years of experience and knowledge to the stage.  Now that you know what they do, head on out to the festival to experience a great time with the band!

2:30PM
Members Only Band
Members Only Band's first CD was called "Keeping It Simple".  Keeping it simple was the first priority when seven guys from four different parishes decided to form a musical group. The passion for camping and making music is what drives the group to meet once a month from March to September to entertain campers at "Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground in Robert, LA for an enjoyable South Louisiana tradition of a Saturday night Fais-Do-Do.  Growing up in different parts of the state provides a gumbo of talent that reflects the diversity of its members.  Come out and enjoy this band that is "Keeping It Simple".

5:00PM
Cypress Band featuring Warren Storm and Willie Tee

The Cypress Band featuring Warren Storm and Willie Tee originated in 1980.  They had their own weekly television show on station KADN on Saturday afternoons. Warren Storm and Willie Tee met in the 80s and put together the Cypress Band and played clubs for years until the oil boom fizzled and the clubs closed.  Although the band broke up in 1984, Warren and Willie Tee continued working together as guest with other bands.  In 2004 the two joined forces again and reformed the band Cypress and we are blessed with their work. The band is solid behind them and the songs fit these two well.  The bands current members consist of Tommy Richard, Karl Bordelon, Carl Dugas and Scott Broussard.
