Join the East Coast Music Scene at 2PM on April 21, 2011. Bubba Mac and Kevin King will be interviewing Rooster.
There are entertainers, musicians, singers, and comedians, but there is only one Rooster! He can lift your spirits and empty your pockets all in the same song! Bawdy humor is not a stranger to Bourbon Street, but Rooster brings it all together musically with a strong Mississippi Delta blues influence like nobody else! As Rooster a/k/a/ Curtis Wheeler (born October 5, 1937) explains on “Born in Mississippi”, his classic blues outing, “I was born in Mississippi, raised down in New Orleans; I ate red beans and rice, made love to a Cajun queen.”† It’s Mississippi Delta electric blues meets Big Easy soul and musicianship, a brand of stone-cold originality that makes even the blandest-sounding blues arrangement sit up and bark at the moon. Rooster has worked at many jobs and has been successful in the workaday world, but the attraction of the blues brought him to playing guitar and singing full time later in life. After traveling the United States for several years, Rooster landed on Bourbon Street, and the place has not been the same since. From his “One man show”” to his high energy blues band, he can create excitement whenever he takes the stage.
