Formed initially to perform at a New Orleans wedding in July 2012, the Cons and Prose learned they had something when they turned the event into a show. The band combines an old-school 50's Rock & Roll feel with grit and entertaining, high-energy live performances. Influenced by artists like the Rolling Stones, Buddy Holly, Iggy Pop, and Ernie K-Doe, the Cons and Prose are succinct but powerful in both their music and style. With front many Rik Slave (Rock City Morgue, The Phantoms), bass player Al Small (The Blue Party), and Keith Hajjar (New Orleans Bingo! Show) on drums and attitude, the Cons and Prose have no problem bringing the crowd to its feet.
