April gig at Neutral Ground

Last Thursday I played before Benyaro, they are from New York. I really enjoyed playing that night and I think I've never done Where The Sun Melts Your Eyes that fast ever..

A Miracle at Whiskey Dix

Was it because of the nice weather? Was it because of the full moon? Anyway, for the first time since I started playing every month at Whiskey Dix 3 months ago, the bar was packed. So last Wednesday night Diante, Jameison and I played loud.

Tonight at Neutral Ground

Went up after Nattie. She has a song called Tommy Lee Jones. Having played last time after Mardi Gras, it seems it wasn't as hard to recover from Saint Patrick's Day, as the picture above doesn't show, though.

Live at Whiskey Dix. Wednesday February 24.

So what was a weekly gig has is now scheduled every month. And what was an open mic is now a show headlined by Abby, Diante. Jameison and myself. Four musicians, four guitars, four different styles. And one harmonica. Last Wednesday, after I got to turn off the light above the pool table, stepping on it, we played set of 4 songs each.

What could at first look quite weird is that we're now playing in front of a huge projection screen. But it fits well with the ambiance of the bar. And playing over the Vancouver Olympics coverage was, well... original. Live music and winter sports in a New Orleans bar, what else could one possibly want?

Chatting at the bar between two sets, Jameison had a kind word for my lyrics which he qualified as Dylanesque. Now that's a surprise...

Mandeville Trailhead Amphitheater gig

Driving to Mandeville last Saturday to attend my first morning gig ever was pretty nice. The sun was shining on the Causeway bridge, the longest or third longest bridge -depending on definitions- over water in the world. Brown pelicans where flying along the road at eye level.

The gig was also the longest show I've ever performed as I played from 10:30 am to 1:15 pm. The idea was to play during the Saturday community market held there every week and besides the breaking of my guitar strap and the cold wind blowing from behind my back everything went well. Kids were playing in front of the stage, bicycle riders waved to say hello as they passed by and the audience enjoyed the show.-
