An award-winning Happy Hour ...
Guy Tem is an award-winning opera singer and vocal professor who came to New Orleans from Turkey in 2007 to sing in an opera - and never left. Guy teaches the table how to tell a man’s singing voice by looking at his neck…then "swings low" with a stirring a cappella rendition of the spiritual that nearly blows out the mics.
David Lee Simmons is an award-winning journalist and communications professional. As communications specialist for the Foundation for Louisiana, David Lee wants us to know about the Foundation’s LEAD program, a seven-week leadership workshop accepting registration for its next cycle through Friday, Feb. 10. David Lee also came to New Orleans as a visitor and never left…except for the Atlanta years, which he says gives him a unique empathy for the Falcons.
Outlaw Nation is a soon-to-be award-winning New Orleans band whose founder Christian Simeon claims most of the best music ever came out of New Orleans. Christian and co-guitarist Sebastian Weston serve up three tunes so infectious you’ll need a shot.
Andrew Duhon says he’s stuck for an album title and asks Christian to name Outlaw Nation's top 10 for inspiration. The winner: "Greatest Misses.” Stay tuned.
