For 27 years, Downtown Alive! has united community and culture to create a weekly tradition and celebration in Downtown Lafayette every Fall and Spring. The Fall 2010 season continues September 24, 2010, with Cowboy Mouth in Parc International offering great entertainment in the form of free, family-friendly, smoke free, outdoor concerts.
The term 'Cowboy Mouth' has been used in the poetry of Shakespeare and Bob Dylan; usually meaning "One with a loud and raucous voice", it describes the band well. With over 2000 concerts under their belt and many years of reviews lauding their live show, this New Orleans based rock band has become a powerhouse live act whose high energy performances have been seen and heard by millions of fans worldwide for nearly 20 years.
The band's 11 album releases include two records on MCA, one on Atlantic and several on their own Cowboy Mouth Records label. So far, the band has enjoyed domestic sales of over 450,000 units. The album sales pale in comparison to the number of tickets the band sells to their live events. Cowboy Mouth shows are legendary, and crowd participation is a must at a Cowboy Mouth show. Led by Fred's larger-than-life presence, the band's performances are high-energy and extraordinarily intense, usually leaving audiences as drenched and spent as the band.
Their more popular songs include "Love of My Life", "Everybody Loves Jill" and "Jenny Says". Through the years, their music has been on the soundtrack for many films, such as Meet the Robinsons and The Underneath. Cowboy Mouth has just released a brand new CD, called "Fearless". The CD includes some of the bands most popular live songs including "Anything", "Disconnected", "Belly" and "Tell the Girl Ur Sorry" of which some earlier, unfinished versions were available on the band's recent live DVD, "The name of the band is Cowboy Mouth". www.cowboymouth.com/
