Caroline Tebbs

Caroline Tebbs

About Caroline...

Caroline is a 15 year old singer-songwriter from Slidell, LA.  She attends Pope John Paul High School as a honor student and ambassador.  Caroline loves music and spends most of her time writing songs on her guitar and piano.  She has written over 100 songs and has just started singing live locally and loading some videos on her YouTube channel and social media sites.

Gary Ragan

About Gary...

Gary Ragan plays guitar, sings, and writes original music. From Corpus Christi, Texas, Gary played the bars and restaurants on both sides of the Mississippi north and south of Baton Rouge, played folk clubs in the Chicago area during a 2-year stint there, and has focused on Americana music, including originals, for the last several years. A lengthy residence in Houston led him to the Old Quarter Acoustic Café in Galveston, where he played with veteran singer-songwriter and bass player Wrecks Bell every week for 9 years.


Bell’s roots as bass player for Townes van Zandt and Lightnin’ Hopkins meant he knew all the players and all the stories from Townes and his musical peers and descendants. Bell opened doors for Gary to play with a young Hayes Carll for 5 years and to have frequent opportunities to play and sometimes record with his writing and performing mentors like Richard Dobson and Ray Wylie Hubbard. A stint with Janis Joplin tribute band Kozmic Pearl led to playing the Janis Joplin Birthday Bash in Port Arthur and opening for original Beatle drummer Pete Best.


Returning to Baton Rouge in 2007 Gary committed to play original music, based on the “Ray (Wylie Hubbard) Rule”: “We just play songs we made up and a few our friends made up.” His band the Cupcake Strippers and gigs with other local songwriters have been the vehicles for this music and he is currently finishing up work on his first CD.
