The Gourds – Gin and Juice

Levon Helm, singer and drummer for the Band, died on April 19th in New York of throat cancer. He was 71. The Band was accredited with putting the Americana sound back into rock and roll but all the members of the band were Canadian except Levon…it must have been his voice.  This week’s band has a sound similar to that of the Band.  On this cut The Gourds remake a song by Snoop Dogg’s Gin and Juice, other than the words there is not much that is the same.  Enjoy The Gourds version of Gin and Juice as the song of the week.

Listen to Levon sing one of The Bands best songs “The Weight” along with help from some friends.
