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.
If you've ever been on a date with someone you really find intriguing but half way through listening to them tell you the story of their life you wonder, "How am I going to respond with something intelligent?" you'll know what it's like looking across the table at Kristin Lyman.
Not only can Kristin dazzle and intimidate you with her day job, after hours you can she hip-hop dance your ass off.
For even more of an intellectual humbling, try having a conversation with super brainiac P H Fred. Not only does the guy speak Latin fer Chrissakes, he can also break down multiple languages into grammatical pieces like gerunds and dangling participles. There are certain circles where that sort of stuff can get you laid.
So can working people out in a San Francisco gym. Ask Jon Roniger.
Not only is Jon a New Orleans version of Dean Martin meets Django Reinhardt - which Andrew Duhon suggests he needs to adapt to Dean Reinhardt and use as porn name - but Jon is also a workout trainer in a past life as well as a serial partier. Checking his mojo at the door ended up getting him straight and married and entertaining the masses in New Orleans most nights a week with the most debonair je ne sais quoi in town.
Monsieur Duhon is back in town apre Paris where he was low on his accordion count but high on smoking women.
