ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Boogie Kings (also known as The Fabulous Boogie Kings) are an American Cajun swamp pop and blue eyed soul supergroup! History The band formulated in Eunice, Louisiana in 1956 as teenagers first consisting members Doug Ardoin, Skip Morris, Bert Miller, and Harris Miller. As their popularity soared, the band became the first Caucasian band to perform music specifically for black people. In 1965, they released their first self-titled album. Throughout the mid 1960’s, the band expanded, including Ned Theall, a Cajun trumpeter from Abbeville became the group’s leader. It was because of him that the band changed their style of music (swamp pop) to a more blue-eyed sound of music. The band toured throughout the United States and helped back many big name musicians on the stage and in the recording studio. The Boogie Kings disbanded in 1969 due to the popularity of the British wave of music. They reformed again in 1975 and 1982 before fading into obscurity once again. In the late 1980s, the band released Cajun Soul in 1988 and Nine Lives in 1989. After that recording, the band disbanded .However, they reunited in 1991 and went back to recording swamp pop music. The band released three albums in the 90’s. To date, The Boogie Kings are still performing. They added three new members to the supergroup and released a new album. The band are still in high demand, touring and performing throughout Louisiana Recordings All in all, The Boogie Kings have released ten studio albums, three compilations and a double compilation album, including an upcoming studio album due late January 2007 Members The Boogie Kings have had different members throughout the decades. Today, the original members are still in the band, including three new members called The New Breed. Allen Wayne, a musician who was inducted into the Louisiana Hall of Fame, joined the band in 2006. Gregg Martinez, a Cajun blue-eyed soul performer also joined in 2006. Mark Klein, a thirteen-year boy, became a member of the Boogie Kings at 10 years old and is also the youngest person ever to join the supergroup. Theall as well as members Jon Smith, Jerry Lacroix, G.G. Shinn, Duane Yates, Dale Gothia, and Gary Dorsey were inducted into the Music Hall of Fame at the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Louisiana.
