Week of 9/15 - 9/16
After about three years (since before Covid) we made our return to the Edge Bar in L'Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge. The Edge has been relocated in the casino. It's now much bigger, bigger stage, easier to move in and out with our equipment. And thankfully a very nice crowd of people there dancing the night away. We played there from 10 to 2. Not really used to that anymore. Playing the four hours are one thing but the hard part is playing 'til 2 in the morning. Really not used to that anymore. Kinda makes me think of Amberjacks on the lake front many years ago. We'd play a full weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Friday and Saturday we'd play from 11 to 3. Sunday 10 to 2. That's right you'd be finishing at 2 o'clock on a Monday morning. And people would still be out. Saturday we were at the St. Mark Episcopal Church Baleada Fest way down Manhattan Blvd. on the west bank. Our first time playing this festival turned out to be a really nice evening. Lotta love bugs floating around. Tried desperately not to swallow one while singing. (Maybe I should have swallowed one that would go down to fight the termite I swallowed a few weeks ago that's been eating away at my wooden heart.) We'll have private gigs next weekend but will be at the St. Angela Catfish Fest in Metairie on 9/29. Here's hoping to see you there. Gotta tell you… we are so happy to be back working again after such a slow couple of weeks. Thanks to all of you. Who Dat!!!
