Scatman Patin and the Ram Rods !

Scatman Patin was tenor saxophonist in the Riff Raffs, a Lafayette, LA group that played New Orleans-styled rock and R&B in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Several of the musicians in the group recorded as solo artists for the Ram label, including Patin, singer Bobby Page, singer/pianist Roy Perkins, and saxophonist Harry Simoneaux.
Patin's sole Ram single was 1958's "Ginning"/"Red Beans & Rice," which were typical New Orleans rock instrumentals, with Patin taking a good squealing solo near the end of "Red Beans & Rice."
For the release the group was renamed the Ram Rods, and the single billed to Scatman Patin and the Ram Rods.
