Michot Melody Makers was formed in 2015 by Louis Michot, front man for the Grammy award winning Lost Bayou Ramblers. The band was awarded best Cajun Band of 2018 by Gambits Big Easy Awards. Their debut release on Sinking City Records, BLOOD MOON, is a snapshot of how this electric string band pushes the boundaries of Cajun traditional music. What began as a rotating cast of members, the band now features a dedicated lineup with Mark Bingham on guitar, Bryan Webre on bass, and Kirkland Middleton on drums. The Melody Makers reinvigorate historic compositions and introduce sublime new melodies, all while evoking soundscapes inspired by a time when drums and amps first electrified Cajun music.
