A jealous husband thwarted Jewel King’s superstardom.

But she did manage to put out 3 x 7 = 21, a single on Imperial that sold over 100k copies back when Moses was young. That jealous husband refused to let his wife go on a headlining tour of the West Coast so label producer Dave Bartholomew asked his old buddy Fats Domino, then unknown, to step into the breach. The rest is rock n roll history.

Got a minute? Check out this 60 second short film on Frady’s One Stop featuring Kirk Frady, owner and operator.

Frady’s is my favorite po boy joint in New Orleans and the last coffee shop in the city where a cup of mud will set you back .75c.

And the next time you get in the mood for a fried baloney sandwich, the crew at Kirk’s little store has you covered.

Dancing in the Streets: Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs of New Orleans Exhibit

When California-native New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell cancelled Second Lines in the winter of last year, thousands of Black New Orleanians were robbed of their ability to feed their families, pay their mortgages or rent, and keep groceries on the table.

Do you miss the Second Lines? I know I do.

The Historic New Orleans Collection just announced an exhibit that will fete New Orleans Second Line culture between now and June 13th 2021.

We’ve all come to realize that the big rollicking Sunday afternoon street parties are not coming back until Cantrell leaves office so this is one of the only available options to enjoy the culture til that moment occurs.
