Song: Lady Bug Picnic
Artist: Palmeto Bug Stompers, from the album Live @ D.B.A.
Another great pick from Phil! One of New Orleans’ most popular bands among Lindy Hoppers. They have been part of the band line-up for the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown ever since it moved to New Orleans in 2009. Although all of their music is fantastic, this novelty song is certainly one of their catchiest. It’s based of an old Sesame Street cartoon, using some of the same lyrics combined with that sweet Palmetto Bug Stompers sound. With band members such as Will Smith (no, not the Fresh Prince) and the Famous Washboard Chaz, any Swing music enthusiast MUST add them to their collection.
You can listen to this song and others on their website and this particular song is found on the 4th album so scroll down the page. http://www.washboardchaz.com/recordings/
