The 5th Annual Hogs for the Cause Fundraiser and Cookoff takes place March 22 & 23, 2013 in New Orleans when City Park becomes City “Pork”. The park’s new Festival Grounds become home Friday night to a Tailgate Experience as well as a Gala Dinner. On Saturday, it becomes a cookoff and music festival!
For favorite New Orleans based singers/vocalists, male and female:
For the entire month of January of this year of 2013, on the air on my Friday morning show from 6 to 9 a.m. I asked people to call or e-mail with the names of their favorite female or male New Orleans based singers.
This had to be one of the best Mardi Gras Parties ever --- Society of Saint Anne simply hit all the high notes and nothing was in a minor key!!! And the international flavor was absolutely spectacular meeting people from Japan, China, France, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Canada, and on and on.
I have been hosting the Overnight Jazz Show for several months every Thursday from 3-6am Nawlins time. It is a Jazz show mostly contemporary but not limited to that, often trending to the Afro Beat and Jam Band Genre. I like to feature a theme or artist or several throughout the show. I do take requests and focus on a majority of the music from VINYL hence the "SPIN CYCLE".
New Orleans, January 2013: Welcome to my kind of King Cake Party! We could talk from Epiphany to Mardi Gras about king cakes and la galette des rois, and stuff you find inside; however, I prefer a discourse on drinking one’s way through Louisiana’s epic culture.
While those of you in New Orleans are dealing with all the fun that comes with Super Bowl, I will be in Memphis (most likely freezing) and participating in the Blues Society's International Blues Challenge.
