After Katrina, people encouraged me to go somewhere else, but I said I’ve got a good location. Bayou Road has always been known for Reggae... I can’t see the club being anywhere else but here.

The Bayou Road Commercial Corridor Initiative is a community driven study to explore the improvement of the Bayou Road area in a way that benefits the existing business owners, helps attract new businesses that serve the needs of the surrounding neighborhoods, and serves as a model for reinvestment in historic commercial corridors that produces sustained benefits for long term residents of the surrounding area.
