The songwriter, piano, accordion, and bass player is also the entertainment manager for the French Quarter Festival. His years of busking with Jeremy Lyons and club dates with his own bands have given him an intimate knowledge of the New Orleans music scene that proves invaluable in booking the world’s largest showcase of Louisiana music talent. His humanity and diligence have made him a universally loved figure. Tonight he presents a healthy counterbalance to the Troubled Men.
Topics include a Cinco de Mayo gig, a crime spike, concealed carry laws, sex work, a retirement, stampedes, Truck Farm recordings, upstate New York, Cornell U., local weather, European street musicians, insect stings, musical influences, “Down by Law,” “The Big Easy,” Jerry Lewis, the Covid scramble, Satchmo Fest, virtual concerts, a fall festival schedule, live dates, the last Circle Bar gig with the Geraniums, and much more.
