Ernie Vincent and the Top Notes (Jerry Moran)

Ernie Vincent and the Top Notes

New Orleans own Funk'n Blues living legend Ernie Vincent is mounting a powerful resurgence in the Crescent City as of late. A product of New Orleans rhythm and blues, Ernie Vincent has been on the music scene since the mid 1960's, playing r&b/funk and collaborating with the likes of Ernie K-Doe, King Floyd, Tommy Ridgley, Oliver Morgan, Irving Bannister, Eddie Bo, Jessie Hill and more.In the early 70's Ernie broke loose and created his own band and signature sound with the Top Notes, churning out smash hits like and “Things are Better” and “Dap Walk” for which Vincent has gone down in the deep funk history books. “Dap Walk”, that unhinged masterpiece of wah wah guitar, multiple drum breakdowns, and positive ghetto messages, is to this day a cult classic all over the world! His appearance is intense, his riffs smoothly rhythmic and his leads as stinging as a hive of angry queen bees. Ernie has been a special guest at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for many years and his music has been on many compilation CDs across the planet.
