Tag(s): Show host blog

Thanks to everyone who helped me to celebrate my birthday the soulful way on Friday, September 13 (2013), at my 7th annual Birthday Jam at Tipitina's. This year, we presented a big payback for ya and called it "Good Foot: A James Brown Get Down."


Get down indeed, as we got down on the dancefloor with the super Funk of the Nigel Hall Band with very special guest Christian McBride. Plus, there was live painting by Reuben Cheatem, cupcakes from Laurel Street Bakery, and positive power courtesy of the ladies of Funk Baby Productions. Special thanks to Tipitina's; to all of the musicians who made it funky: Nigel Hall (vocals, bandleader, Soul Power), Christian McBride (bass, vocals, Funk thumpin'), John Notto (guitar), Alvin Ford Jr. (drums), Roderick Paulin (saxophone), Jennifer Hartswick (trumpet), and Eric Bloom (trumpet); and to all of you who came out in huge numbers and packed the place out.


That's what I call a soulful takeover and a right on party situation. Thanks for a birthday jam I'll never forget.

Soul Sister's Class Act

It's not only Soul Sister's great radio show, it is also her community involvement. She puts on a film festival, books music and djs, performs, etc. and in the classiest of classy moves - when the neighbors complain about the noise at Mimi's, Soul Sister voluntarily withdrew from the gig out of respect for the neighbors. Nobody complained specifically about her but she dropped a long-standing gig out of her ethic's concerns. This is a classy, classy classy woman. The Sophisticated, Soul Sister.
