The famous crawfish boil!

The Off The Record team is heading to New Orleans and we are getting excited. The Jazz Fest line-up has been announced and it looks sensational. (Go to for more details). The line-up for The Ponderosa Stomp ( is also out and that looks fabulous. We get back from the Cajun Country tour just in time to spend the rest of the night at the House Of Blues.

We arrive in Memphis on Sunday April 22 and spend three nights there before going to the home of the blues in Clarksdale, Mississippi and across to Helena, West Arkansas. We then travel to New Orleans on April 26 where we join Nancy Covey’s brilliant Cajun Country Tour.

If you are not already coming and would like to do so then the deadline for booking the whole trip is Friday February 9. After that date we can fit you in to the New Orleans section of the tour but not the Memphis/Clarksdale sidetrip.

Stay tuned to this page for more details about the tour, hints on what to see and what to do and other valuable information.
