Tab Benoit’s Swampland Jam will soak the Crystal Bay Casino’s Crown Room on Sept. 26.

Big Chief Monk Bourdreaux, Johnny Sansone and Waylon Thibodaeux will spice a most authentic gumbo of jambalaya, Devildog Productions’ Brent Harding announced Wednesday morning.

Benoit, Big Chief, Sansone and Thibodeaux performed in the Crown Room a decade ago – Feb. 12, 2011 – as the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars. Since then, Benoit has co-founded the label Whiskey Bayou Records.

Known as a unique guitarist, drummer and entertainer, Benoit now can be called a longhair. He calls his new locks a “Covid cut.”

Big Chief Monk Boudreaux released “Bloodstains & Teardrops” May 21 on Whiskey Bayou Records. He is from a Mardi Gras Indian tribe. He appeared with the Wild Magnolias at the first New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

A harmonica virtuoso, Sansone’s latest album, “Hopeland,” was produced by Anders Osborne and includes contributions from Luther and Cody Dickinson.

A straight-ahead Cajun player, Thibodeaux is called “Louisiana’s Rockin’ Fiddler.” He sings in both French and English and, like Benoit, is an engaging entertainer.

Tickets are $35.
