“Throw Me Something, Mister,” the track from Buck’s Alligator debut, Lay Your Burden Down, will be used in the episode of MTV’s Real World: New Orleans airing next Wednesday, July 28th. You can hear it in the trailer for the show here – http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/523628/real-world-new-orleans-trailer.jhtml#id=1640588 (between 30 and 45 seconds into the video)
The House of Blues Radio Hour (8/14 – 15) will feature Buckwheat! Stanley Dural Jr. played keyboards for soul bands, until he got a gig with Louisiana legend Clifton Chenier. He promptly picked up an accordion and has been Buckwheat Zydeco ever since. He sits down with Elwood to talk about his musical journey, and play music from his CD, LAY YOUR BURDEN DOWN. We will also hear Clifton Chenier, the swamp rock of JJ Grey, and brand new music from Swedish guitar player and songwriter, Anders Osborne, who now calls New Orleans his home.
