  1. Great blog. Hoping you could help me. Fist Boss show for me and it was great last night. There was a song I love and can’t figure it out even from set list you provided. Around the middle of the show… But not positive about that. It was A cajun zydeco sounding song. Any ideas what it was? Thanks in advance.
