Pat's Weekly Diary: 3/24 - 3/27
The diary is a day late this week because we actually had a gig on… MONDAY. That's right. Other than Lundi Gras it's extremely rare to be playing on a Monday. But… there we were… at the Jaxson in the Jax Brewery playing a party for Blue Cross / Blue Shield ('Blues News and All That Jazz') the guests were for the most part from out of town. A very nice easy gig turned to be quite the party for a Monday night. The week actually started on Friday night as we were in Kenner at Chateau Estates playing for the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton 37th Annual Eagle Gala. A really nice and easy gig we played only about 90 minutes. We played before the auction. Then a D.J. took over. Thanks to Dolph & Casie Federico of Pelican Events for hiring the Topcats. It certainly feels like we play at Chateau Estates a lot. We should maybe just leave a set of equipment there all the time. Saturday we returned to Chalmette for the first time in… a long time to close out the Louisiana Crawfish Festival. As you can imagine the fair grounds was just packed with so many people. So many friends down there that we haven't seen in some time. There was a time that we played the function just about every year so we were thrilled to be invited back. And that was our weekend. As always thanks for your support. Sincerely appreciate the 40 years. We'll see you soon.
