Some Photos of Lagniappe from Hamilton's Riverbank Cafe

Nice restaurant. If you want a seat near the band, call for reservations. It can be crowded and they will stick you in the bar where you can't hear yourself think. High din level in restaurant so you need to sit close to the band, though they do stroll the restaurant crowd as well. Stage set is high due to it's being the old Burg's Men's store. The men's shirts were up a staircase that years later, became the "stage" that you now see at the Cafe.
(Just in case you were wondering why the stage is so high, I know I was but I digress)

I heard Lapniappe years ago and then just recently at Whole Foods. I really enjoyed them, especially the brass instruments when they played Dixieland music. I also liked it that the band strolled around and played to the crowd.

Wow, what an ensemble! These cats really swing, and have their own unique sound. The instrumentation is so versatile, such variety! Keep on keeping on!
