Well, sometimes New Orleans is fun to play. Sometimes it depends on the band you're in.

The main band I'm in right now is a good band...however, just trying to get them to learn more songs is like pulling teeth.

Tonight and last night, we had good nights. And part of it (I think) is because I had a polite chat with the MC (a very sweet girl, and a good MC) about observing the crowd we had (older crowd, nicely dressed, and spending money at the bar). I asked her that if she was going to play dance music, keep it old school....save Gangnam Style and rap and hip hop for when the band is completely finished playing, because I did not wish to lose that crowd. She completely understood, and ran with my request....and we had two really good nights. Hell, tonight, not only did she keep the crowd we had, she built on to it some, and when we took the stage, we built on it even more. We shut down every other bar on the street....tonight...we ruled.

And yeah, this weather lately has not been a boon to my voice.

I'm an assistant department head of the nonfoods (or Drug & General Merchendise) department at my local Kroger store. Nonfoods is a sort of a confusing name, since some of the things we handle (like baby food, candy and some health food) can be considered food while we don't necessarily handle all the nonfood stuff (like detergent, paper towels, and pet supplies).

But... what's more interesting is how this thread has turned into a discussion of music performance.

Bourbon St! Holy Crap, martok. You're like at the center for a lot of jazz history! That is nothing short of f'in awesome.

Hi, Miguelda,

Heh....Bourbon St. really doesn't have much jazz on it anymore. Yeah, it's definitely got the jazz history, but most of the clubs are rock and roll or dance now. There's one open air restaurant that has some old school jazzers playing during the day into the early evening, and another club further up the street that also has actual jazz bands. But clubs like Famous Door, Bourbon St. Blues Company, Fat Catz, Old Opera House, Krazy Korner, Club 544, Bourbon Live, and Razzoo, are pretty much rock and roll or dance band clubs.
