The Red River Playboys is a collection of seasoned musicians with an average of 30 years playing experience in various genres. The Playboys is the brainchild of Lead Guitarist Michael 'T-Mike' Long and accordionist Pat 'Frenchy' Mason, both from Shreveport, LA., who have been part of the Louisiana music scene since the early 70's and are experienced in the diverse musical heritage of Louisiana, including Cajun/Zydeco, Swamp Pop, R&B and Blues all seasoned in the rich Zydeco/Cajun flavor only the Playboys can produce in their unique progressive style. Rounding out the the mix are veteran Bassist Larry 'Gordeaux' Gordy, Drummer Ron 'Whitaquer' Whitaker, and Choya 'Snappy' Crenshaw (Pat's cousin) on fiddle originally from Elysian Fields, TX. Finally, rounding out the mix is veteran keyboardist Bill Unverzagt, well known and respected in the Shreveport music scene for years. From popular Louisiana music to original music, the Playboys are the quintessential party band. You can order their CD 'BIG RED' by requesting a copy when filling out the contact form.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on June 24, 2005From Oklahoma City, OK

Great band, lots of fun, extremely entertaining. Everyone was raving about them. They made the rehearsal dinner a huge success. Would definately hire them again for any occassion. They couldn't have been more accomodating than they were. Definately worth every penny and more!
