Pat’s Weekly Diary – Week of 4/21 – 4/23
We had a very nice weekend of work. Friday night we played at the St. Pius X School fair in Lakeview. What a beautiful evening to be outside. It was our first time playing this fair. Our old pal Chip Forstall was there. Surely you’ve seen his commercials featuring New Orleans musicians. We were one of the first bands to be featured in Chips commercials… maybe 12 – 13 year ago. Check out the video page. If you’re wondering why our spot no longer plays… the format on which our spot was recorded is now obsolete. What??? What does that say about us? Saturday was a wedding in Baton Rouge at the Lod Cook Alumni Center which is actually on the LSU campus. As we’re driving through the campus to get there we’re all reminiscing about the frat houses and sorority houses we played many years ago. Christ!!! Those were some wild crazy days. It’s been quite some time since we last played a frat party or a sorority party. The wedding was a fantastic affair. The guests danced right from the start. Thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Matthew and Kelsey San Martin for inviting us to the party. Sunday was at Christ the King school fair in Terrytown. This is a fair we’ve played for several years now. It was a little chilly but we managed to get through. A splendid time was had by all. We’re off now and we hope to see you on Thursday night at the Treasure Chest.
