Here is Frank Horn and The Bourbon Street Six taken at a party back in the 1960’s.  I am not positive of the location, but I believe it is the Pensacola Country Club.  If anyone knows the band members, please let us know who they are.  Thanks for looking …

  1. Mr. Hardy,

    I happened upon this photograph while searching for “The Bourbon Street Six.” I have several photos of my late father, William (Bill) Womack playing with a band of the same name in the late 50’s or early 60’s and I have to wonder if this photograph could be of some of the band members that he played with. He was a Pensacola H.S graduate c/o 54′ and played the drums throughout the south east.

    While I can’t identify these individuals, I could not pass up what appeared to be a coincidence.

    • Mark … I wish I could be of help to you, but the only person in the band that I really knew was Frank Horne. He and my father were close friends and we went to First Methodist Church with the Horne family, so I knew them. I knew the guys that played in band by face when I started photographing weddings with my father in the 1970’s, but I never really ” knew ” them by name or at this point anyway. I now that Frank had band members rotate in and out his band and the name was always ” The Bourbon Street Six “. Thanks for commenting and I wish that I was more helpful remembering who the members of the band were. Please check back in the future …

  2. Hi Mr. Hardy, I am not sure if this is the Bourbon Street Six that my dad was with or not. We lived in Ohio and he used to play occasionally with them on the base fiddle. His name was Charlie Stasek. I knew the drummer, who he was good friends with for a long time, was Duncan Soutar (sp?). My neice found a copy of their music and bought it on ebay. She is going to make a recording for me. Hope that helps you out?? I cannot honestly say I recognize any of the men in this picture (my dad is not in this one), but then, I was only a couple of years old back when…Laura

    • Laura … Thanks for the comment. I have known Frank Horne for my entire life and I know that I have worked at several hundred weddings that his band had played. The Bourbon Street Six was the name that he called his group and he had lots of players in the group through thirty years or more of playing various events. I knew a lot of the guys by their faces but I could never remember their names. This photo was made in the early 1960’s and I know that he played into the 1990’s. I am not sure when he died, but I am sure that he has been dead for at least ten years or so. I will find out some more and I will post it in the future. Check back in the future and I will have some more information … Frank
