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.
According to acupuncturist and dispenser of love-based medicine Noell Eanes, at one point we were all running around with three eyes. Evolution dealt us a sad blow, removing our third eye which allowed us to see emotions.
Now Noell keeps her third eye open, her chakras tuned up and her Qi flowing with a number of techniques and the aid of a ring made of Shattucktite. Noell can even perform acupuncture without needles, known as Shakuju, and hangs out with witches. On paper this all might seem eccentric and weird, but the way Noell tells it, it all sounds perfectly, well, lovely.
Blaze Edwards is a photographer, but that's the one thing nobody talks about in this conversation. Blaze has plenty else to talk about though, including the birth of Kemetic Yoga. Kemet is apparently the original name for Africa, and if you're wondering how Yoga, normally associated with India, came to be African, well Blaze can tell you.
Since we last met her on Happy Hour, Kathryn Rose Wood has transformed from the front person in a band to a formidable singer-songwriter and the city's go-to person for other women singer-songwriters as the host of an all-woman singer-songwriter night at the International House Hotel.
Andrew Duhon was a woman in a past life some 500 years ago and today marks the beginning of his and Grant's journey into the world of warlocks.
