It’s that time of year here in New Orleans, it’s Carnival Time!!. Mardi gras coming up soon. All my bands have gigs during the season and Valparaiso Men’s Chorus will be at Saturn Bar on Lundi Gras! That should be wild. Palmetto Bug Stompers will performing at Jazz Fest on the last day (May 3), looking forward to that. Big news with Tin Men. We’ll be at Ascona Jazz festival in Switzerland June 25 -30. The world’s premier washboard, guitar, sousaphone trio making another trip to the continent! More fests news to come. Washboard Chaz Mardi Gras beads are almost gone, so if want them order now as no more will be made. See you at the shows!
