Sharing the stage with our friends – Rooster Blues – at Benny’s Boom Boom Room! Showtime is 10 pm.
Two more shows until we close this tour out..We can’t express enough how thankful we are to everyone who has made it a success. See y’all tonight!
Another Grand Weekend – Thank you Chelsea’s (Baton Rouge), Gov St. Grocery (Ocean Springs), Bennie’s Boom Room (Hattiesburg) and the Rooster Blues boys for making it so…
Big things coming up – starting test shots for the Wolfman video today – finishing up tracking for our 6th album at the Music Shed on Wed, Mardi Gras Kick-Off show in Mobile at the Garage on Thur, through FL and back, all culminating in a gigantic Lundi Gras show at the Maison monday night – 10pm – with Debauche and Mannie Fresh. Hope to catch you along the way.
Good times in Jackson, MS last night. But so much has happened since then and when we last talked. Hmm, let’s see… where to begin?
The six of us (Me’n’Charlie’n’Bootsy’n’Jimmy’n’Matt & Clay) arrived homeless back in New Orleans at the end of June from our S/SE tour. Bootsy left for Europe for a month, and the remaining five of us found a nice, cheap, big place in the Marigny to lay low for a while. We now live at 1234 Fake St:
We’ve been getting by, hustlin’, bustlin’ & busking (catch us today in Jackson Square and on Frenchmen late afternoonish, getting a slow start) & playing club gigs when we can pick up a drummer (Dave Shirley from E Company has been a godsend ringer). Catch us at Moe’s BBQ in Daphne, AL this Friday, and at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street this Saturday with E Company and the Alex McMurray Band. This show is going to kill…
Also, we’ve picked up a manager – the venerable miss Jaime Coggins. From Holy Ghost Tent Revival (of whom she also manages) to P-funk to Jaco Pastorius to Roberta Fleck, her taste is direct and without falter, and her judgment – keen and sharp like Japanese folded steel. She’ll be handling most of our business end from now on, I’ve updated our contact section should you need to contact her regarding gigs, private parties for the Queen of Atlantis, etc. Here’s a little Leonard Cohen / Dr. Dog mash-up to honor our new union:
Looking forward, we’ve got some big things planned for the rest of the summer. Bootsy gets back from Europe at the beginning of next month, and then the 6 of us will be hitting the road hard (check the sidebar for dates ->) – got another South/Southeast tour (TX, LA, MS, AL, TN, FL, SC, NC, VA) this August, then, come September, we’re headed to Colorado…
Big things in the horizon my friends…
It’s a funny thing, how life moves at such an incredible pace.

P.S. Our 4th album is fully recorded and currently being mastered by Bhob Rainey (who also did Volume Two, a true gentlemen of sound). Me’n’Charlie just finished hand-drawing the cover art ourselves this weekend. Peep it:
It’s going down tonight at the Ole Tavern on George Street:
Rooster Blues kick off the show at 10pm.
Dirty Bourbon follows at 11pm.
What’s’a’gonna happen? Anything can happen.
