Walter Wolfman Washington & The Roadmasters At Ogden After Hours says
Walter Wolfman Washington has been an icon on the New Orleans music scene since the 1970’s combining his soulful voice and guitar mastery mixing R&B, funk, jazz, and blues. Growing up singing in church, Washington’s first band in his early teens was a spirituals group called True Love and Gospel Singers, but once he got his first taste of the guitar, he never looked back. Washington toured with Lee Dorsey, helped Irma Thomas start her own band, worked with saxophonist David Lastie, and wound up with Johnny Adams. In the 1980’s Washington formed his own band, the Roadmasters, and they’ve been playing steadily since. Come celebrate the New Year and wish a happy belated birthday to Washington, who will have just turned 73.
