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.
8 years in the making, the worldwide exclusive broadcast premier of the hit single Crackhead Fred by Sarah Reagor happens right here.
Andrew Duhon was at the bar at Wayfare before this edition of Happy Hour and met Sarah Reagor. Little did he know with whom he was striking up a conversation.
Sarah wrote her hit single in 8th grade and has barely played it since.
In this rendition Sarah gets most of the way through it before stopping in deference to Anne Churchill's tears.
Anne Churchill knows a thing or two about guitar music. Anne was the tour chef for many years for the Dave Matthews Band, as well as Melissa Etheridge and Zack Brown.
Off the road and back home in New Orleans, Anne has settled in at Bhava, a vegan restaurant she's opened above Feelings Cafe in the Marigny.
Brian "Bruiser" Broussard was also hanging out at the Wayfare bar before today's show, trying to sell the owners on his Covington Brewhouse beer.
Bruiser hooks us up with a taste test and the Happy Hour crew gives him an honest focus group response.
In other random Only-In-New-Orleans developments, it turns out that Bruiser is the new bass player in Cowboy Mouth.
Andrew Duhon tries out a brand new song. Anne declares it a hit. Time Will Tell.
