Yvette & Roddie made their debut duo performance at the Isleton Cajun & Blues Festival in Isleton California this past weekend. Here’s what The Examiner had to say:
“The local greats were followed by rising star Yvette Landry and Roddie Romero making their California debut. Oh my, thank you to the Isleton Chamber of Commerce for bringing this pair to the Delta!. Yvette’s mix of Country style Blues was a superb listening experience and listening to Roddie play was a treat that could easily become an addictive indulgence. Romero is a ‘Grammy nominated Louisiana songwriter who has been performing Louisiana roots music worldwide for over 20 years” and Landry tours worldwide as a multi-instrumentalist in several bands and has, she stated, been writing her own songs for about four years. Yvette Landry’s voice carries a bowl full of Soul, Country, Blues and Cajun twang and her sexy legs don’t hurt the eyes a bit either. Bring Yvette and Roddie back next year please!”
