King James and the Special Men

April 14th, 2013

King James and the Special Men are one of the best kept secrets in New Orleans. Named after a popular furniture commercial in the eighties, they have held down a regular Monday night gig in for years at BJ’s in the Bywater. They play 9th ward Rhythm and Blues, taking the sounds of yesteryear and putting a more updated finish on a familiar sound. Not typically the type to cross Canal St., we got them behind the mule in Mid City after a performance at Voodoo Festival.
