McCaa sings a new single, "Shreveport, you're a big dog now" from new album, Under a HooDoo Moon; see the AFM116 site to listen and download
Heavily influenced by the music of New Orleans and the blues scenes in both Memphis and Austin, Chris McCaa plays keyboards, sings, arranges and writes tunes, says his web site at http://afm116.org/feature/chrismccaa.html. Enjoy and download the single at his site.
As a journeyman performer McCaa has pounded the piano for several of Louisiana's most popular bar bands. The list includes A-Train in the 1970s, The Red Hots in the 1980s, and the MTV award-winning Insatiables in the 1990s.
Chris has returned to his roots as a Louisiana professor, or pianist (implied as an entertainer in a bawdy house). Taking the moniker of Professor Porkchop, Chris created a band that takes you on a musical trip through the bayou, to New Orleans and beyond.
McCaa has opened for B.B. King, Bobby Blue Bland, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmy Vaughan, Asleep at the Wheel, Bo Diddley, KoKo Taylor, Delbert McClinton and Keb' Mo'.
You can catch Professor Porkchop behind the piano at restaurants or with his band on the Red River gambling boats.
Listen to his single entitled, Shreveport, from the upcoming album, Underneath a HooDoo Moon, on the Larry Ryan Show on KLKL - Oldies 95.7FM.
