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.
The Fake Carls aren't fake, they're a real band whose friend (not Carl) plays the Handpan.
The central nervous system of the Fake Carls are (not) a couple of Loyola music business students, Julie Wischan and Steve Panacek.
Julie and Steve knock us out with two tunes - the first song they ever wrote and the newest.
Do you hear that? No, you can't, because it's so supersonic high frequency that nobody can hear it. Not even dogs.
In the ever-changing music business, technology pioneer Chris Reade has come up with a way to use super high frequency sound to let The Fake Carls and other musicians make a bit of money. It's a brand new app in development with the working title, Chirp.
Elizabeth Pearce spends most of her days and nights drinking. In other cities that might be called an alcoholic. In New Orleans we proudly call Elizabeth a cocktail expert and an authority on the culture of bar rooms.
Elizabeth wrote the book on where to hang out in the French Quarter, she blogs about booze and bartenders, she takes tourists on bar tours and she's writing and performing in a musical about Prohibition.
