But the music is nonstop and this is always guaranteed to be an old-fashioned Mississippi boogie. Y'all come!

About Otha Turner:

"Renowned for his picnic parties Mr. Turner - who played a homemade bamboo cane fife or wooden flute and spent much of his life as a sharecropper and subsistence farmer - was a living link to rural Blues and fife-and-drum pre-blues that extended well into the 19th Century."

A perfect, intimate space. It is a great-sounding room for groups of any size and persuasion, from acoustic to Ana Popovic.

After a very few years, Chickie Wah Wah has taken its place alongside the Maple Leaf, d.b.a., and Tipitina’s as a classic New Orleans groove haunt.”

Mississippi music legend Sam Chatmon (January 10, 1897 – February 2, 1983) was a Delta blues guitarist and singer. He was a member of the Mississippi Sheiks and may have been Charlie Patton's half brother. Chatmon was a longtime resident of Hollandale, located in the south Delta though he was raised in Bolton, which is between Jackson and Vicksburg. In the 1920s & 1930s he was a member of the Mississippi Sheiks, a string band that included many of his brothers; he recorded with the group in addition to making records under his own name. In the 1960s Chatmon returned to performing, and became popular on the festival circuit.
