Kevin Anthony & G-Town will release a tribute album in honor of the “Godfather of Cajun Music” — Harry Choates — at its album release party from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday at Hendley Green, 2028 Strand St., in Galveston.

Choates, who died at 28, was a mixture of Elvis Presley, Hank Williams and Jimmy Hendrix all rolled into one, and was known for his ability on the fiddle that you could hear at honky-tonks, bars and dance halls across Texas and Louisiana.
