Back in 2014, Yvette Landry and Roddie Romero went into La Louisiane studios and tracked “I’m Leaving It Up to You,” a song recorded by Dale & Grace, in 1963, and whose version became the only Number 1 Billboard Hot 100 Chart song to come out of Lafayette. The two enjoyed working together so much that a new group was formed and a stellar record is on the way! Yvette Landry & The Jukes (featuring Roddie Romero) recently wrapped up “Louisiana Lovin’,” a new album recorded at Dockside Studio in Maurice, LA. The record will be officially released July 27, 2018. With the help of Eric Adcock, Josef Butts, Jermaine Prejean, Derek Huston, Richard Comeaux and Beau Thomas, this recording will take you back to the dance halls and swamp pop hits of the 1950’s.
“I’m proud of this record. It is the music that I grew up listening to and dancing to. It is music from my home…my people. It is inside of me and it is something that I want to keep alive. It is good music, good friends, and good time—a little “Louisiana Lovin’.”
