CHICKEN SNAKE was founded in 2009 by Jerry Teel ( Honeymoon Killers, Boss Hog, Chrome Cranks, Knoxville Girls, Jerry Teel & The Big City Stompers ) and his wife and songwriting partner, Pauline Teel ( Jerry Teel & The Big City Stompers ). The band has included many musicians along the way, as The Teels have wandered through the big cities and waded through the backwoods swamps, while longing to return to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

Upon returning to New Orleans, they solidified the line-up with Chicken Snakes long time guitar player, Josh Lee Hooker and the recruitment of Jessica-Melain on drums. This line-up is present on their last two records, UNHOLY ROLLERS ( BEAST RECORDS 2014 ) and the newly released, TOMBSTONE N BONES ( BEAST RECORDS 2016 ) .

CHICKEN SNAKES sound is likened to old rusty train wheels, screeching down a lonesome track at midnight .. Or a Gris-Gris charm made of dirty swamp water, a pinch of graveyard dirt, a few bottles of Whisky & Gin, The Devil and Sin, stirred with a handful of rooster feathers- until mixed well..

ABOUT

DKDC

At BAR DKDC, we’ve paired Chef Karen Carrier’s eclectic tastes with the essence of local cuisines — international street food. The soul of the street, Our menu of small plates reads like an global backpacker’s food diary. Oaxacan Mexican to Shashlik from Israel. Spanish Tapas to the spices of the Caribbean. Plus, we change it up every five weeks. Relax in our intimate space with textiles from India, masks from Cuernavaca and Taxco, furnishings from our own Southern Delta, and music from all of the above.

Order a cocktail that matches the mood and travel with us.

It was a chance encounter in the restroom of a trendy New York City Bar. A struggling art student mentioned her love of cooking and lack of money. The other woman was a caterer in need of workers. The two exchanged names and Chef Karen Carrier never returned to graduate school. Instead she has enjoyed a varied career in food and has never regretted her decision to swap palette for palate.

Like all good southerners, she eventually returned home to Memphis in 1987 to start a family and plant the seeds for a restaurant empire.

KAREN CARRIER

Carrier launched Another Roadside Attraction Catering, the stunning revival of downtown Memphis with Automatic Slims Tonga Club (which she sold in 2008), The Beauty Shop Restaurant, Do Sushi, Noodle Doodle do, The Mollie Fontaine Lounge and her newest venture—Bar-DKDC Social Club.

Critics have applied descriptors like daring, exuberant, eclectic and risk-taking to her restaurant ventures – words that apply equally well to the fanciful fusion food, the funky décor and chef—owner Karen Carrier. Her ambitious cooking combines big Southern and international flavors—it’s what Food & Wine described as “in your face” cooking: imaginative, well-prepared, and full of surprises.
