Great food, great music and martinis were the recipes being cooked up by local chef Doug Adsit and musician Paul Smith. The first of a proposed series of regional cuisine and entertainment nights, Martinis and Blues took place at Smith Music Saturday night. Participants got an opportunity to enjoy an authentic Louisiana buffet, traditional blues music and martinis.

But a great delta buffet was not the only thing on the menu. Smith was joined by Ed Bulger, David LeBel and Allen Pangborn in getting back to the roots of music for the event.
