Great music, hard work and thousands of miles on the tour bus appear to be paying off for Houma, Louisiana’s Josh Garrett Band this holiday season. Their song “Sleepin On the Levee” will be featured as the ”Blues Breaker” song of the week on December 17th and 18th House of Blues Radio Show, hosted by Dan Aykroyd (aka Elwood Blues). “String of Problems” will be played on the same radio program on December 31st and Jan 1st. Aykroyd’s radio show focuses on emerging artists. Visit Dan Aykroyd’s website thebluesmobile.com.
Both songs are on Josh Garrett’s most recent album ”String of Problems” which hit #1 on the Roots Music Louisiana Blues Charts the first week of December.
