BMI Songwriter Stage at the Historic New Orleans Collection
New Orleans is a city built on myths. Whether it’s the pervasive influence of voodoo, jazz, Mardi Gras, and bourbon, the legends of Louisiana continue to intoxicate future generations. The sights, sounds, and smells of the Big Easy are unlike anything else in the world. Once you’ve visited, you’re never quite the same. Lest we forget, this is the area that produced Louis Armstrong, The Meters, Fats Domino, and even Lil Wayne. Music might as well be in the water. That brings us to Baby Bee. The brotherly duo of Joe Stark [vocals, guitar] and David Stark [drums] proudly pick up the rock ‘n’ roll mantle for Louisiana.
“We draw from so many different places,” David admits. “There are those South Louisiana rhythms that speak to us. There’s a Cajun feels that comes from listening to guys like Cleveland Crochet. At the same time, we love Queens of the Stone Age and The Hives. As a result, I feel like we hunted down our own style.”
