Festival Season!

I’m excited to be playing again at the New Orleans French Quarter Festival.  This year, I’ll be performing for the first time on the BMI Songwriter stage! And catch me with the man, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, as well!

Carnival Time Already!

Has it really been 5 months since I’ve posted here at the site.  It’s been fun!  I did a short run with the Honey Island Swamp Band up to Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis area.  The Jerk Offisers EP has been mixed and we smashed up the New Years weekend!  La Cloosterfoose trips the jam fantastic. I’m posting the upcoming dates now.  Also look out for my podcast: The Truth is Dumb to debut this year!

Check back for more upcoming dates.

French Quarter Fest

It’s Festival Season again!  We are doing a pre-French Quarter Fest show tonight at the Oop Oop Pah Do Bar on Orleans Ave. and I’ll be back at the Fest this year supporting Real Good Love.

We will be playing Friday 4/10 at 11am on the Big River Stage by the aquarium.  Later I’ll be back on the stage with Big Chief Monk and on Saturday I’ll be with the Wild Magnolias on the main stage at I wanna say 5:45.  Might find me popping up anyplace…  See you out there!

Carnival

Carnival snuck up this year like a train. I haven’t posted since the holidays but that seems like forever ago. The Big Big Chief passed on and now the season comes early.  It has been a heavy time but with lots of positive things happening to be grateful for. We’re doing a tribute at the Joy on the 13th at the Joy. More info and shows…

More shows coming soon!

Also, there is a guy who looks a lot like me, but probably isn’t me, going around with a new rock group called the Jerk Offisers. I guess looking like a guy is the best flattery- you should probably like their facebook page!
