It’s Mardi Gras time in New Orleans. And yes, the Super Bowl has just landed here. Welcome to any of our fans who are visiting us this week. It’s a crazy world out there! This email will be brief and then I’ll let you get on with more important things…
Thanks to everyone who came out to our one and only show last week at Mojitos on Friday. Up until today the weather has been so lovely in New Orleans and it was truly a perfect night for a little courtyard concert. I was also reminded that it’s been a while since my last email, a couple of fans finding out about the show last minute. Please remember to check our website regularly for updates to the schedule. New stuff sneaks in all the time!
We’re getting in on the Super Bowl action this week and playing two shows on Friday at the Super Bowl Boulevard, staged on the riverfront at Woldenburg Park. There’s more info on the band line-up as well as a downloadable map HERE. This is a FREE event and New Orleans knows how to make a party, so join in the revelry!
Also this week is our return to the Rock ‘n’ Bowl TONIGHT (Wednesday) for swing night and on Thursday we strip it down for Mimi’s in the Marigny. Then it’s Mardi Gras week and three chances to see us, starting with a Tuesday night show with Jayson Wayne Knox at Siberia. We have an exciting show next Friday, February 8th at Chickie Wah Wah. We’re calling it “The Hillbilly Ball” and we’ve teamed up with our friends, The Haunted Hearts. They don’t have a website but you can read about their experience meeting Hunter S. Thomson at the Circle Bar by clicking that link. And check out the poster I “designed.” It’s no professional job but you get the idea.
And just a quick mention of a new, monthly show at Mojitos we’ll be doing called Second Saturdays which starts on February 9th and continues through the spring. Now you know where to find us every second Saturday! As always, please check out our website for more info on all the upcoming shows.
This is me, signing off. A Happy Mardi Gras to everyone. And Happy Super Bowl…may the best team win. Down here we’ll be wearing our Black & Gold, but secrectly I’ll be rooting for Baltimore. I am a Maryland girl, after all.Be safe, be smart but most of all…have fun!
Your gal pal,
