Schedule:

We have an incredible group of shows upcoming at both the Manship Theatre and at the Red Dragon Listening Room. Sure hope you can make em all. Or at least some of them, anyway!!!

 

Let's fill the room for SPENCER BOHREN!!!

A couple of months ago we shared the cancer diagnosis for our friend SPENCER BOHREN. We helped out on a big fundraiser which is now sustaining the family while Spencer is in treatment. But the music just won't wait! In keeping with our yearly tradition, Spencer returns to the Red Dragon on Sat, Feb 16. Shows are infrequent these days as treatment takes up a great deal of Spencer's time. But his energy is high and he can't wait to come see us in Baton Rouge. I hope every single Red Dragon patron will check their calendar and will join us if they can. Here is the info:

PALOOZA 2019 FUNDRAISER..... OK, y'all......our annual fundraiser is around the corner. So far it has been kinda slim. To be truthful, it has kinda sucked! We've fielded a few nice donations that we promptly spent on the things we fell behind on. Taxes are paid, new microphones are in place, soundproofing has happened and some expensive artist deposits have been posted. But we really are entering our fund raising season with a bank account that is running on empty...
If we do absolutely nothing but the basics, it runs us about $1800 a month to operate. Utilities, advertising, supplies, artist hospitality, equipment, computer stuff....you name it. Basically, just take a look in your checkbook and see what monthly expenses you have at your house......add a few more (like ad expenses) and you know what we have faced for 17 years of running the Dragon. Liz and I have done a bunch out of our pocket, but in retirement that just ain't possible anymore. So c'mon y'all......help us out a bit. If you can attend PALOOZA, please do. If you can't, SEND MONEY!!! (subtle, aren't I?). Did I mention that we are a 501 (c) 3 federal non profit? That means they are
TAX DEDCUCTIBLE!!!

NASHVILLE/NEW ORLEANS CONNECTION

Les Kerr has a new blog about the musical connection between Nashville and New Orleans. From Louis Armstrong’s collaboration with Jimmie Rodgers to Del McCoury playing with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the connection continues at:

http://leskerr.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/the-nashville-new-orleans-musical-connection/

======================================================

"Though it's impossible to pinpoint a particular moment when immigrants began inventing American music, a dramatic turning point surely occurred in 1804, the year a young nation made the Louisiana Purchase. President Thomas Jefferson sought to buy from the French just the city of New Orleans, because of its crucial value as a port. But a cash-strapped Napoleon sold the entire, still-uncharted Louisiana Territory for $15 million — roughly 4 cents an acre.  In a single stroke, America became a thrilling, noisy eruption of sound."

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BREATHE SECONDHAND SMOKE AT WORK.  WHY SHOULD I?
 
"I have been affected by secondhand smoke.  I remember one night I was playing in a club and I went to hit a high note and I almost blacked out on stage.  I had to hold the microphone to keep from falling down. There was so much smoke in the place that it had a negative impact on my singing."
--Deacon John

QUAKER BENEDICTION

When the song of the angel is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
The work of Christmas begins:
   To find the lost,
   To heal the broken,
   To feed the hungry,
   To release the prisoner,
   To rebuild the nations,
   To bring peace among brothers,
   To make music in the heart.
