John "Papa" Gros has been leading an incredibly talented ensemble of musicians at The Maple Leaf every Monday
night for the past 13 years. Sadly, this past Monday marked the end of their residency, and next month at
Tipitina's they will be going on an indefinite hiatus (although Papa Gros refuses to say they are breaking up).

This really is too bad, since these guys are true torchbearers of New Orleans funk in the 21st century and
play with the ease that can only be earned through time. All five members are incredible, and they were joined
by some special guests, such as original drummer Russell Batiste, Jr, to lay waste to the Maple Leaf stage one last time.

Guitarist June Yamigishi is the secret weapon in their arsenal, unleashing a plethora of Hendrix-esque solos
that put him on par with any of the more famous guitarists on the modern jam band circuit. Wherever these guys
land, you can be sure they will continue to bring the hard funk they have honed for the past 13 years with their Papa.
