The frantic 1977 smash hit "Black Betty" by Ram Jam was a cover of a Leadbelly prison work song -- the bleusman told John Lomax the "Bambalam" simulated the prisoner's axes hitting trees, and Black Betty was the foreman's whip (or maybe the prison wagon).

For more than three decades, The Dew Drop Inn was New Orleans' swankiest nightclub -- which made it the south's swankiest nightclub. Dew Drop provided safe haven for the hottest black or integrated traveling rhythm & blues acts, during the dark era of segregation.

Allen Toussaint got an early start at the Dew Drop, a frequent hangout of Gatemouth Brown, Joe Turner, and a young Dr John.

The club & hotel was located in the Central City neighborhood of New Orleans, between St Charles & Claiborne, spent three decades being one of the most influential musical hotspots in the country, serving up some of the best music in the city every night of the week. 

The name is a play on the colloquial southern invitation to "do drop in!", as in -- "do drop in next time you're in town."
