Lagniappe

Lagniappe

Lagniappe means a little something extra, and the group Lagniappe conveys heartfelt soulfulness in every note they play. Matters of the heart and soul are the essence of great music, and they perform timeless R & B classics by Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Al Green, the Staple Singers, Irma Thomas, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gay, and many more. Led by the lovely and talented Genine “Miss Poetry” Perez, Lagniappe features guitar virtuoso Ben Harris, the ever-funky Jay Gentry on electric and upright bass, and rock-solid drummer Dave Hoffpauir. This versatile trio can play refined instrumental jazz standards for a classy ambience or they can fill the dance floor with funky jazz fusion. Adding the extensive soul, R & B, Motown, and Blues repertoire of Miss Perez is indeed “something extra.”
