Music Monday: “Down by the Riverside,” by Joe Lastie Family Gospel

I just returned from my second research trip to New Orleans this year.  On my last night in the Crescent City, I attended a free concert by the Joe Lastie Family Gospel group at St. Louis Cathedral.  Lastie has been the drummer at Preservation Hall for 27 years.  Other members of the group are Rickie Morie (piano), Christopher Vaughan (organ and vocals), and Elliot “Stackman” Callier on saxophone (he played with Fats Domino back in the proverbial day).  Here is one of the songs they did at the show.
