Written by Ed Shankman and Illustrated by David O'Neill

Drummer Bobcat Bob leads a hot band of multi-cultural musicians, featuring a gator on bass, a finger-snapping frog, and a horn section made up of raccoons and a crayfish. Bobcat Bob's band is known for miles around  for raising the sun with their music, but one day the music stops and "the great New Orleans lost its voice." Through months of darkness, the people "wished that things were like before" and with a single drum beat on Bourbon Street, and then another, the music came back to New Orleans, better than ever! Children and parents alike will love this story about the healing power of music. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation.

The Bourbon Street Band is Back
