Eighth Annual Ponderosa Stomp April 28th and 29th, 2009
House of Blues and the Parish, New Orleans

Celebrating the Unsung Heroes of the Blues, Garage, Soul,
Funk, Rockabilly, Swamp Pop and New Orleans R&B on Three
Stages for Two Big Nights

The eighth annual Ponderosa Stomp will invade the House of
Blues New Orleans April 28 and 29, 2009. The 2009 edition
will be the biggest to date, with an expanded three-day
conference and a Ponderosa Stomp-curated exhibition at the
Louisiana State Museum at The Cabildo in New Orleans. The
2nd Annual Music Conference and Exhibit is presented in
partnership with The Louisiana State Museum and the Rock N'
Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

Rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson and soul legend Howard Tate
will be among the acts making their Stomp debuts. Rejoining
the Stomp will be swamp man Dale Hawkins ("Suzie Q"), Dan
Penn ("The Dark End of the Street"), the Hi Rhythm Section,
and 75-year-old Lazy Lester, the patron saint of the
P-Stomp, whose instrumental 1966 track for Excello Records
provided the festival's namesake.

Cyril Jordan and Roy Loney of the Flamin' Groovies have not
played a full set together since 1971, but will perform
backed by the A-Bones at the P-Stomp. James Burton and Dale
Hawkins had not shared the stage for 40 years prior to the
2nd Ponderosa Stomp but the rare pairing will return this
year. Otis Clay will perform with the Hi Rhythm Section,
another pairing that has rarely taken place in recent years.

Last year's P-Stomp drew standing-room-only crowds at the
festival and daytime music conference. Jon Pareles of The
New York Times called the P-Stomp "a party on its way to
becoming an institution." He continued, "the Stomp mingled
high-octane rockabilly, elegantly dynamic Southern soul,
intricate New Orleans R&B and some kindred untamed music."
