July 4, 2015 - Livingston, LA - Storms hammered the city of Livingston. More were on the way. Yet, Louisiana's LeRoux was able to take the stage to the delight of wet and muddy concert goers at the Cajun Country Jam. It was an amazing event, a year in planning by Scott Innes and his staff. While the main stage got totally rained out, LeRoux made things happen on a smaller stage. Though tight quarters, the LeRoux sound was still huge and the crowd went wild. Keith Landry, who drove in from Nashville with his family was in top form, never missing a note, no matter how high or how low. The original members of LeRoux, Rod Roddy on keyboards and vocals, Tony Haselden, on guitar and vocals, and longtime member Jim Odom on guitar and vocals stepped up as of out of the past.
They were amazing...still rocking...still a thrill for the true blue fans of LeRoux. But, much respect was also given to the relatively "new" guys on stage. Nelson Blanchard on keyboards, guitar and vocals has been with LeRoux for many years now, as well as Mark Duthu on percussion. While they may be new to our older fans, they have held their own for many years, giving LeRoux that extra full sound. Drummer Randy Scott Carpenter just dominated the rhythms in Livingston. His powerful, confident drum line stayed straight and crushing. Newest guy on the block is bass player Joey Decker. He defies description! But he stays in the pocket and fits in with LeRoux like a hand in glove. It was definitely a wet one...but the show went on and no one seemed disappointed. As LeRoux played hit after hit, the Cajun Country crowd danced in the rain, swayed in the wind, and applauded throughout the thunder.
