Contemporary Southern Rock
Their 1978 Capitol Records press release read, "LeRoux takes its name from the Cajun French term for the thick and hearty gravy base that's used to make a gumbo." LeRoux's eponymous first album was a musical gumbo that blended various instruments and music arrangements into a spicy, mouth-watering southern rock sound. In fact, their Southern anthem 'New Orleans Ladies', voted Song of the Century by Gambit Magazine, simmered with the laid-back feel of the "Big Easy," evoking images of Bourbon Street and the bayou. After a ten-year hiatus, this Southern Contemporary Blues treasure is releasing its seventh studio album entitled One of Those Days. Produced by legendary producer, Jeff Glixman (Kansas, Gary Moore, Georgia Satellites, Yngwie Malmsteen), One of Those Days is packed with tasty sovngs, ripping guitars, sultry southern ballads and special appearances. LeRoux, having toured with likes of The Doobie Brothers, The Allman Brothers, Journey, Kansas, Heart, Marshall Tucker, and many others was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame as their 50th inductee.
