Lafayette’s Bayou Boys have hitched a ride on the Saints bandwagon with a rockin’ new single of the same name that praises the black and gold. “The Saints Bandwagon” does what members of the football team have been reluctant to do, at least publicly — look ahead to the ultimate prize. The tune carries the refrain, “Where we gonna go? Down to Miami,” a not-so subtle reference to the Super Bowl, which will be played in Miami in February. “Saints Bandwagon” has its best moment in an absolutely barn-burner of a fiddle lead by Beau Thomas.
Featuring some former members of Atchafalaya, the band will soon be selling the single at thesaintsbandwagon.com. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Drew Brees Dream Foundation, which has poured millions of dollars into New Orleans’ Katrina recovery effort.
