Bobby J

On lead vocals is 'Bobby J’ Jordan, an active part of his hometown's gospel and secular music culture. The melodious raspy tenor, commonly referred to as the one-man show, is best recognized for his lead vocal contribution on commercial re-makes Every Time You Go AwayAin't No Woman Like My Baby, and Baby Come Back (Louisiana Purchase Band). Bobby garnered global popularity over his better than five decade career as a ‘singing drummer’; as elite lead entertainer with his Stuff Like That Band; as a selected participant in the Small Business Revolution of America Documentary Video Series; as a recipient of the Jazz Foundation of America's Gospel Is Alive award; and as opening act for some of the world's most revered artists: Larry Graham, Gladys Knight, the Pointer Sisters, Kool and the Gang, Air Supply, Billy Preston, Raheem Devaughn, Ashford and Simpson, Pieces of a Dream, Usher, Irma Thomas, Aaron Neville and the Neville Brothers, Ali Ollie Woodson, Peabo Bryson, Michael Henderson, Bobby "Blue" Bland, D. J. Rogers, Chuck Mangione, Patti Labelle, and the BarKays, to name a few.

Big D

Derwin ‘Big D’ Perkins is not your average run-of-the-mill guitarist. New Orleans born and raised, he began his career in the church (as did his counterparts). Being an integral part of the New Orleans music scene, it wasn’t long after that his uncompromising guitar style was noticed as one of New Orleans’ top acts in both the gospel and secular sector. His playing is swamped in groove, feel and taste. He has recorded and shared the stage with artists such as Jon Cleary & The Absolute Monster Gentlemen, Bonnie Raitt, Davell Crawford, Boukou Groove, Dr. John and many others.


On bass guitar is Barry Jackson of Houston, Texas. He is a songwriter and recording artist, best known for his “off the hook” baseline on gospel singer Kim Burrell's Try Me Again. He has toured with John P. Kee, Mattie Moss Clark, and numerous others, and is currently working with the B.B. King Experience featuring Tito Jackson (the Jackson 5) and Claudia King (daughter of B. B. King).

Jevon Sr

Native New Orleanian Jevon Brown, Sr. is the gospel inspired keyboard extraordinaire and musical genius. Jevon is not only a musician; he's a producer, composer, and arranger. One of the best in the business. He's on board and best of all, Southern Feel gets two for one: Jevon Brown, Sr. and Jevon Brown Jr. - a new and upcoming drummer with the skills of a matured, experienced musician.
