Creative inspiration surrounds us in the South. It's like no other place.
Our culture is unique and special and our celebrations are many and joyful. We not only gave birth to the Blues and Jazz but we also revel in Mardi Gras, Second-lines, countless music festivals and, of course, the food. Every day is a journey. Join us!
So, there's not enough on my plate these days, just two from the opening of Jazz Fest so guess what I spend most of my time doing? Going to music in-stores at the Louisiana Music Factory. I got to escort the musicians to the "Green Room" upstairs again. Always cool to meet Dirty Dozen even if they don't know who I am. That's ok. They really are the best brass band out there. Sorry Rebirth, I know you got the Grammy this year and all that but truth is truth. At least I did my "homework" before I went down to the French Quarter. I made myself finish painting the shutters for my booth decoration so I wouldn't have that hanging over my head.
