Smoke Notes

A Louisiana super-group of legends of Cajun, Zydeco, Swamp pop, country music and Louisiana rock & soul, who blur the lines between their genres in their mutual admiration.

You can judge a band by the company it keeps, and in the case of Louisiana supergroup The Lil' Band O'Gold , its prowess and soul has attracted a formidable swath of admirers and collaborators with Robert Plant, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Bo Diddley, Philip Glass, Talking Heads, Clifton Chenier, John Hiatt, Slim Harpo, Lazy Lester, Nick Lowe, BeauSoleil and Eric Clapton all having shared recording studios and stages with The Lil' Band O' Gold and its members over the years.

With 14 brand new tracks, their sophomore effort (and first new album in a decade), 'The Promised Land' delivers the diverse musical goods that are the bands' hallmark. It serves as a companion soundtrack for The Promised Land film documentary. The 90-minute movie on Lil' Band O' Gold debuted in 2009, screening at The Cannes Film Festival, SXSW '09 Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival and WOMEX.

Robert Plant chose Lil' Band O' Gold to be his backing band for "It Keeps Raining", a track for the album Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino. One legendary night, Plant also joined the band onstage at Tipitinas in New Orleans for a mini-set (including a bayou groove version of "Whole Lotta Love") that still has Crescent City music fans buzzing. A flurry of activity as the decade came to a close has yielded what roots-music aficionados have been waiting for: 'The Promised Land'.
