Oscar-Winning Movie Features Song By Acadiana Band
The "Green Book" won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2019, and the movie featured a song by a band from Acadiana.
As you can tell from listening to the song, it is the epitome of a Swamp Pop classic!
You might recall hearing one of Bobby Page and the Riff-Raffs' other recordings, Hippy-Ti-Yo:
KATC quoted one of the band members, the guy who actually wrote the song (and our friend and co-worker) VJ (Boo-Boo) Boulet as saying:
We was all floored. It's unbelievable, I mean, I'm in a movie - VJ Boulet
Congrats, Boo-Boo; we are proud of you!
