New Orleans…

For the past year or so, the frequency in which folks have expressed to me their desire to visit New Orleans has gone through the roof. Post-Katrina lure…probably. Can i be such a cynic, absolutely not. There are arguments that speak to both the pros and cons of this increased popularity – interesting point of views (especially if you ask someone who is a New Orleans native). Economically, there are reasons that would justify the recent influx…Lousianna film tax incentive and the new HBO show TREME to name a couple.

Recently, a business trip to New Orleans opened my eyes to a city that is truly unlike any i’ve ever seen before. As i rode in a cab to a uptown bar (at 2 o clock in the morning) i found myself having an interesting convo with the cabbie about what makes New Orleans “Nawlins” to it’s natives…the answer – “it’s simple, black or white, rich or poor, we all share a love for music first, and good food second!”

On my flight back home, i found myself running through the music i’d heard and the food i’d eaten and i couldn’t help but laugh at how right the cabbie was. Below are a couple of bands i thoroughly enjoyed while i was in New Orleans.

enjoy…
