HAPPY HOUR is a cocktail-fueled 60 minutes of random conversation with folks who have nothing in common, other than being New Orleanians in a bar. Featuring extraordinary New Orleans musicians playing live, host Grant Morris and sidekick deluxe Andrew Duhon.
Morgan Ford got married last week and postponed her honeymoon so she could go on Happy Hour. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration. But Morgan did actually get married last week and she really is on this Happy Hour.
Morgan probably knows more about what's going on in New Orleans than anyone in the city: she's the community manager for Yelp!
Devin DeWulf arrived in New Orleans a decade ago and did what most people do when they get here: painted his car and turned it into a work of rolling art, started a Mardi Gras krewe - Red Beans, which has now spun into a sister krewe called Dead Beans - met and married a Belgian woman, had two kids, wrote them both theme songs, and started teaching middle school history. In his spare time Devin also paints. He sells his artwork, often donating the proceeds to education causes.
Dayna Kurtz is one of America's musical treasures, a song writer's song writer. Song writers like Nora Jones and Bonnie Raitt sing her praises. Dayna sings the praises of the city she calls home now, New Orleans, and on this Happy Hour she sings a song about a guy named Fernando who she fell in love with in a dream. Fernando (who apparently doesn't exist) was in Venezuela (which does) but his legacy lives on in this awesome song. If you've never heard Dayna before, listen to this, you'll see what all the fuss is about, and if you are already a DK fan, this is a great version of this song (complete with a finger injury).
April Love Stolf sits in for Grant Morris.
