Two years ago I had the pleasure of being in New Orleans on King’s Day for the king cake kick-off and saw Herlin Riley live at Bywater Bakery‘s block party. It was an unforgettable experience.
This year they held the event virtually and it was great! I was so glad to get a taste of New Orleans all the way up at the north end of the Mississippi river.
Featured Performers included:
Leyla McCella, John Boutte, Charmane Neville, and a Super Group comprised of: Herlin Riley, Oscar Rosignolli, Corey Henry, Wendell Brunious, Wes “Warm Daddy” Anderson, Detroit Brooks, and Chris Severen.
Happy New Year and Happy (almost) Mardi Gras!
