Layla Musselwhite is a New Orleans-based singer songwriter and slide guitarist who draws on a rich musical legacy via her father, blues legend Charlie Musselwhite. Layla grew up on the road steeped in the music of the greatest artists of our time including Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Big Mama Thornton & John Lee Hooker.  While her music spans rhythm & blues, blues rock, folk, and soul, the touchstone is always the same - a deep understanding and respect for the early rhythms and melodies at the heart of the blues.

Jimmy first made a name for himself playing electric guitar and leading the psychedelic rock/blues band, Ejaculation (yes, you read correctly, it was 1968, after all...) at the Free Concert weekly series on New Orleans Riverfront.. He went on to front The Progrock band, Laugh In The Dark, in the 70’s, and in 1975 founded the celebrated instrumental rock fusion band, Woodenhead . Woodenhead performs today, and is celebrating their 40th anniversary with a special performance at  The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in May, 2015, as well as releasing a recording of new material, a live concert from New Orleans’ famed Tipitina’s and a reissue of their entire, remastered catalog.
