“The yummy ingredients in this rich musical gumbo include the spicy Louisiana lilt in Johnette Downing’s voice, and irresistible Cajun and Creole rhythms in playfully evocative songs about ‘gators, ‘skeeters, crawfish, a stroll by the bayou, a boppin’ kitchen band and a werewolf named Loup Garou.”

Lynne Heffley, The Los Angeles Times

“From the Gumbo Pot, Johnette Downing stirs up a Cajun slice of life with these energetic, charismatic, affectionate tunes. Speaking to kid’s interests, songs are upbeat, bouncy and short enough to keep them hopping. However, if you’re not prepared to keep singing, don’t even push “play.” Laissez les bon temps rouler.”

Kit Bloom, Parents Choice Foundation

“Toe tapping tunes!”
