I'm hoping someone can point me in the direction I'm looking for. We're throwing a surprise Mardi Gras-themed party for my father at the end of the month. We have a pretty good foundation of zydeco and jazz, but want to add some classic/current rock. A family friend has recommended the same things I've been able to come up with off the top of my head - Proud Mary, Born on the Bayou, When the Saints Go Marching In (not really 'rock' but can't have the party without it). Going through the assembled CDs we have, we're having a hard time finding more that has some relevance to New Orleans, a Bayou, Louisiana, etc - I guess I'm looking to narrow down within "Southern Rock." Any suggestions are greatly appreciated - thanks!

Some of these are probably kind of obvious, but I'll see what comes out of my head:

Blue Bayou --Roy Orbison (maybe too slow?)
New Orleans -- Gary US Bonds
Way Down Yonder In New Orleans -- Freddy Cannon
Louisiana 1927 -- Randy Newman (again, not really a party song)
The Mississippi -- Continental Drifters
Witch Queen Of New Orleans -- Redbone
Iko Iko -- various versions (Dr. John, Dixie Cups, etc.)
Mardi Gras In New Orleans -- Professor Longhair
Mardi Gras Mambo -- Hawkettes
Walking To New Orleans -- Fats Domino (Neil Young does a version, too)
Rad Gumbo -- Little Feat
Louisiana Lou and Three Card Monty John -- Allman Brothers
Up On Cripple Creek -- The Band (he wants to go to Louisiana)

If you just want artists who are associated with New Orleans and its sound, I'd throw in Dr. John, Huey "Piano" Smith & The Clowns, Fats Domino, The Radiators, Lee Dorsey, Robert Parker, The Meters, and Aaron Neville. Oh, and Bill Haley does a pretty good rock version of "When The Saints..." called "The Saints Rock and Roll" if you're interested.
