COURTESY GUY FIERI
The mayor of Flavortown.
Cowboy Mouth and Guy Fieri. Guy Fieri and Cowboy Mouth. Cowboy Mouth. Guy Fieri. Cowboy Mouth. Guy Fieri.
Hearing their names, together, felt like a warm breeze. Familiar. Comforting. It all made sense. The golden-haired godhead of smashing food into one's mouth meets the mouth itself. Guy
Mouth. Planets aligned.
Guy Fieri — large food eater last seen in New Orleans reuniting with the Hot Boys
during All-Star Weekend — will once again grace our gravy-soaked Flavortown on his Rockin' Roadshow this Sunday, June 25 at Tipitina's with a performance from Cowboy Mouth.
Guy Fieri, the Cowboy Mouth of food, and Fred LeBlanc, the Guy Fieri of Cowboy Mouth, apparently have an undeniable magnetism, a 20-year friendship that began with a courtship dance at a Cowboy Mouth concert in California. The rest, they say, is history. Tell 'em, Doug
The story goes that LeBlanc — and this will surprise no one who's ever seen Cowboy Mouth — left the stage, waded into the audience, and climbed atop the table where Fieri sat.
LeBlanc says he doesn't remember calling the crowd's attention to Fieri's blonde brush-cut hair, but the celebrity chef says he did — again, could anyone doubt this? LeBlanc said he probably recognized Fieri as the most likely hell-raiser in the audience.
Ah, yes. Classic Guy. Classic Fred. Raising hell to the tune of "Jenny Says" at a seated concert. Their friendship joins the annals of New Orleans food-and-music camaraderie, alongside Emeril Lagasse and Sammy Hagar
. May they be blessed with 20 more years of companionship.
Cowboy Mouth performs at Guy Fieri's Rockin' Roadshow at 8 p.m. Sunday, June 25 at Tipitina's (501 Napoleon Ave.). Doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
