Gregg Martinez -  MacDaddy Mojeaux
LABEL: NOLA BLUE RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: JULY 17, 2020
 
 
Front man, vocalist and trumpeter Gregg Martinez (pronounced MartNEZ - the i is basically silent)
earned his moniker “Mac Daddy” early in his five-decade-long career as the leader of the King
Fish, The Heat, The Boogie Kings and now Gregg Martinez and the Delta Kings. His sparkling tenor and powerful vocal style were inspired and influenced by the Soul crooners of the 60’s and 70’s including Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Al Green and fellow Louisiana artists G.G. Shinn, Luther Kent, and Johnny Adams. His music combines New Orleans style R&B, with Philly and Memphis Soul and Texas Swing into a churning gumbo sound that traces its roots to the Acadiana region of southern Louisiana and southeast Texas affectionately called Swamp Pop.

Solidifying his role as one of the leading purveyors of the style, Martinez is set to release his 12th
album, “MacDaddy Mojeaux,” just in time to fuel a fais do-do on a sizzling summer night. The
thirteen fresh tracks are a spectacle of love and devotion recorded by Grammy-winning engineer
Tony Daigle together with some of the hottest musicians in the south including a full horn section
and special guests Sonny Landreth, Rockin’ Dopsie Jr, and Charlene Howard. The album adds to
his mystery as the “maqereau” (a man the Creole believe has an unusual power over women) by
conjuring the collection of songs into his “Magic Charm” and then fancifully spelling it out as his
“Mojeaux,” eluding to the suave, charmant, and sophistiquĂ© ingredients in this “Le Philtre
D’Amour. 


BIOGRAPHY
Gregg Martinez, aka Mac Daddy, is one of Louisiana’s premier R&B/Soul Blues/Swamp Pop artist.
Born and raised in Lafayette, Martinez is now based in New Orleans. He has released eleven albums including 2016’s “Soul Of The Bayou,” which reached #3 on the Roots Music Report R&B Album chart and was named one of OFFBEAT Magazine’s Top Ten Albums in Louisiana 2016.
In addition to his native Louisiana, Martinez has toured extensively across the U.S. and around the world. He is backed by his band the Delta Kings, a seven-piece unit with full horn section and some of the hottest musicians in the South. He has been repeatedly nominated for Best Male Vocalist in OFFBEAT Magazine’s Best of the BEAT Awards. The late Ed Bradley of TV’s 60 Minutes, upon seeing him perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 2005, called Gregg Martinez “one of America’s greatest hidden treasures.” In addition, Martinez had the honor of singing at Percy Sledge’s funeral in 2015. He was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2019.
