Friday, May 2: Where You Can Find Me
January 25th, 2008 under music, New Orleans Music. [ Comments: none ]

john_prine.jpgJohn Prine is coming to Jazzfest! After last year’s crowd I was thinking I might pass on Jazzfest for a while. Or at least just hang out in the Gospel Tent. There’s a pretty good lineup this year so I might have to save a few bucks and go. He’s one of the best songwriters around, and not a bad theologian either.

Some humans ain’t human, some people ain’t kind….

See y’all there!


Why I Love New Orleans
April 16th, 2007 under music, NewOrleans. [ Comments: 2 ]

Pure Joy!I’m trying to get over a nasty stomach problem so I’ve been pretty lazy lately. But Sunday afternoon, I couldn’t take it any more. I had to go to the French Quarter Festival. I didn’t make it past the Brass Band stage to see Bonerama, but you know, I really didn’t need to. That’s the great thing about New Orleans and the French Quarter Festival. You can have a great time anywhere.

Storyville Stompers Brass Band

I stopped at the Brass Band stage and watched the Storyville Stompers. They were great! When my wife and daughter rejoined me after having gone to see Charmaine Neville, my daughter couldn’t keep still! She was dancing and having a great time.

Then this older gentleman tapped her on the shoulder and asked her if she wanted to dance. Here’s a pic. It was a moment of pure joy. To quote Kurt Vonnegut’s uncle Alex, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”

Thank’s Kurt for the memories and for reminding us to revel in a moment of joy. You’re right music is proof for the existence of God!
