Musician Tabby Thomas (1929 - 2014)


"Blues is my life. I'm not saying it's right. I'm not saying it's wrong — C'est la vie." 
- Rockin’ Tabby Thomas King of Swamp Blues
 


Perhaps most known as the proprietor of Baton Rouge, Lousiana's most famous blues club, Tabby’s Blues Box and Heritage Hall, Tabby Thomas rose to early acclaim with his song “Hoodoo Party” in 1961. 


He passes down a legacy of keeping the Blues tradition alive in southern Louisiana and around the globe. #louisianamusic #swampblues
