What music should a New Orleans noob go see this weekend? [more inside]
Can anyone recommend to me music similar to the album Delmond and his father were recording in HBO's Treme? [more inside]
I'm in New Orleans the week of the 13th-20th and have very few plans for what to do during the day (by myself) or at night (with a friend). I'm looking for suggestions for places to go, preferably that we can get to by streetcar. Note: I've never spent this much time in a city with a big river before and have no idea what to do with that. [more inside]
Does anybody know of a small jazz ensemble to play our wedding ceremony in New Orleans? [more inside]
Help us find an upbeat Dixieland jazz song for our wedding recessional (besides "When The Saints Go Marching In"). [more inside]
I've fallen in love with this rendition of "O Holy Night"
[MP3] from last week's episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
. Now I want a whole Christmas album in that style - either already made or individual songs to make a mix. Any recommendations? I particularly like how the song is still totally recognizable and pleasant, despite having lots of soul to it and cool improvisations. Thanks!
Speaking of New Orleans
, I am going to Mardi Gras with some friends but would like some off-the-beaten-path suggestions for things to do. Stuff like jazz, cemeteries, unique cuisine, etc. (with no major budgetary concerns).
From my memory of MG 2000, Bourbon Street gets pretty old pretty quickly.
