This is an original song inspired by an old Louisiana tradition of family dances. My uncle used to have an old dance hall on Delacroix Island with dances at least once a month where the whole family attended. In fact they would rope off a section on the dance floor in front of the stage for the little kids to dance. They also provided "Army cots" to put the kids to sleep on while the parents danced till early morn. Truly some great memories.

The tune is here on YouTube and entitled On The Bayou

As always, your time and comments are appreciated.

Edited portion . . . Graham I have a slide in this montage especially for you.

Danny, it’s all been said, super song with super backing tracks. Pretty neat guitar work there also!

Loved the parking sign!

You should post more songs my friend!

Hey Danny!! Very good song and vocal was great. This reminds me of when we used to go down to Breaux Bridge and ate at Mulates. They always had Cajun band playing and every one danced. Little children and Grownups having a family good time. Thanks for this song. I think this is my favorite song. occ

Floyd . . . Thanks and I hope you had a big lunch today. I have to admit we do have some pretty good chow down here in South Louisiana. Also I do have a few ideas lyric wise that I have not gotten to yet, we'll see maybe next rainy day I am not playing a gig.

Austin51 . . . Thanks for the kind words.

Mario . . . Thank you partner for the kudos and yes that sign is outside a little joint in Cajun Country. When I saw it I thought of Graham and had to include it in montage. Now if I only had photo of your cannolis to go in the video, but then we would have to change the theme music to a tarantella.

OCC . . . Thank you so much and I am happy the project brought back some fond memories of Louisiana. The family dances tradition may just be my favorite Louisiana tradition as I enjoy so much seeing families having good clean fun together.

On a side not I have these older friends, husband and wife, who love to dance and many times we would be at a dance and they would have their heads slumped down actually sleeping where they sat. But when the band started it would not take more than 5 notes before they would (in one motion) wake up and head for the dance floor.

Nice tune, Danny. Made me want to dance (I know, it made others want to eat. I confess, that too.)

I am reminded that when I posted a similar tune a couple of years ago ("Laissez les Bon Temps Boogie") in celebration of the Saints' 2010 Superbowl victory, you gave me a mild criticism, saying, in effect, that there was too much french in the tune, and "not everybody in N.O. speaks French". I had stuff like "Jolie Blonde," and "je t'aim."

I don't live there, and I'm not French either (well, maybe 1/8th) but is it fair to criticize you back?

1st af all thanks for the listen and the feedback. With this said, absolutely it is fair to criticize me back . . . or front.

When I commented on your song what I meant, and I am trying to remember the context of both the tune and my response, was that sometimes some people who do not have strong enough New Orleans connection assume that the city and area are 100% French. And while there is a very strong French presence in Southwest Louisiana that is not particularly true of the New Olreans city limits.

Regarding On The bayou and the Cajun references they are all based on the lifestyle of Cajuns in Acadiana "not" New Orleans, almost like two different worlds. But go ahead and let me have it, I am a big boy.

Take Care,

Love this one Danny! I don't dance, so I'll just be over here by the bandstand with my gumbo and cold beer.

Hi Danny,

I remember reading in a recent post of yours that these days you're starting to feel more like you're getting the hang of being a songwriter. In my opinion, this song clearly shows that you are indeed a competent songwriter. Moreover you're an equally competent arranger and mixer and an excellent performer. You're way way past merely "getting the hang of it"!

This is a great composition. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing it. Having a slide show to watch while I listened was the proverbial icing on the cake. Sorry I can't type more but I'm feeling a very strong urge to go back and listen to it again.

All the best,
Noel

90db . . . Thanks for the listen and nice comment. Re: dancing, especially these days I truly believe anything goes . . . what's the old saying, dance like no one is watching? I guess that is a great goal, that I too have not mastered. I will sit on stage with you grazing on the gumbo and boiled seafood, heck I'll even buy the beer!

boem, Don and rsdean . . . thank you so much for the time to listen and the wonderful comments.

Noel . . . what can I say in return after reading your wonderful comments other than the check is in the mail. One caveat it will be you who will have to tell Mario I spent my cannoli money as a reward for your nice comments.

You guys made my day!

Later,

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
