Lake Charles, Louisiana, has named a stretch of highway after the late Boozoo Chavis, who passed away on May 5, 2001.  Unfortunately the story doesn’t say where the highway is.  And there was a musical celebration as well, this past Friday, May 13, 2011.  And get you some Boozoo, if you don’t have any!  After Clifton Chenier, he’s the most important early figure in zydeco, recording the monster regional hit Paper in my shoe.
