New Orleans band Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes will perform a free concert Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 8 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Union ballroom in Laramie.
Offbeat magazine selected the funk/rock style band's debut album, "Bandicoot," as the "2003 Best Rock Album by a Louisiana Artist." Other awards include "Best Emerging Roots Rock Band" and "The Big Easy Entertainment Award." Their other albums are "Live at the Spleaf," "Pain, Pleasure, Fear and Opera," and their latest release, "The Big Awesome."
"Their music has energy that fuels a crowd to get up and dance," says Stephanie Meyer of the Student Activities Council that sponsors the concert.
