Listening to Happy Fats & the Rayne-Bo Ramblers this afternoon. If you were dancing in a roadhouse in Acadiana in the 30s and 40s Happy Fats may have had his Rayne-Bo Ramblers on the bandshell. They were the most popular band in southwest Louisiana during that era.

Dig Fats? Check out Crawford J. Vincent, Pee Wee Broussard, Luderin Darbonne, Doc Guidry, “Papa Cairo” Lamperez, and Rex Champagne too.
