Legendary musician Jerry LaCroix dies

SOUTHEAST TEXAS - He played with Edgar Winter, Blood, Sweat & Tears and other well known musical groups, but Jerry LaCroix will forever be remembered as part of The Boogie Kings.

LaCroix died Wednesday at a Lufkin hospital. He suffered from congestive heart failure.

LaCroix was born in Louisiana but moved to Southeast Texas as a child. He went to school in Port Arthur and Port Neches and graduated from PN-G High School.

His blend of rhythm and blues, soul, rock, and swamp pop, stood the test of time. LaCroix performed for more than half a century. His work with The Boogie Kings is how Jerry "Count Jackson" LaCroix made a name for himself across the region.

He was inducted into the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame. He was a regular performer at the annual Janis Joplin Tribute Concert. LaCroix had an influence on Joplin's career, according to Joplin's sister.

Jerry LaCroix was 70.
