A musical line up of Louisiana all-stars joined forces for one of their rare live appearances together at the intimate venue in Los Angeles on December 9. Ivan Neville, Eric Lindell, Stanton Moore and Robert Mercurio delivered a two set show of tightly arranged tunes that were familiar to the adoring fans in the club. The packed house of New Orleans music lovers sang, danced and cheered throughout the show.
French singer Patrick Bruel played before an adoring, packed crowd at downtown L.A.’s Orpheum Theatre on Saturday night, November 8. The show was a love fest between Bruel and what was obviously a horde of ex-pat French fans that relished the chance to see their musical hero in person.
Jazzfest 2013 will be remembered for great music and food but mostly for some horrendously rainy weather. The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
celebrated the 44th year of the event with several big name acts, many of the regional bands that have been a part of the tradition and all of the amazing food vendors that make Jazzfest a unique experience. While the music and food lived up to expectations, Mother Nature was clearly pissed at someone because her barrage of wind, rain and cold made the Fairgrounds a seriously stinky, muddy pit.
