In the year following Katrina, as we all continued the struggle to rebuild our
lives, homes and city, it was particularly gratifying to participate in the
come-back of some of the landmark venues in the city, honored to be
playing as the "house band" for these events (which also served as fund
raisers for the Musicians' Clinic). The musicians and crowd were electrified
with the joy and energy of recapturing a bit of life and culture as we knew it
before the storm, forgetting for an evening that we still had an incredible
amount of work to do...
SOME OF OUR POST-KATRINA GIGS IN 2006 WERE SO MUCH FUN, WE
CAN'T BELIEVE WE WERE PAID TO PLAY...
