Blues in the District returns to Washington Park in Quincy this Friday with Big Al & The Heavyweights performing from 5:30 to 9:30. Big Al Lauro was born and raised in New Orleans and his music will range from Cajun to Zydeco to Blues to Rock and everything in between.  When you experience Big Al and the Heavyweights you will very likely join the legion of fans know as "Gumbo Heads"!
