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.
Apparently women find men who allegedly shoot people, up to three times more attractive than peace loving guys.
As a defense attorney Nandi Campbell finds herself representing these guys. Sometimes they don't have the resources to pay a first class defense attorney like Nandi and so the wife, the girlfriend and the other girlfriend come into Nandi's office to sort it out. Nandi is no stranger to the multiple partner world, having grown up with two sisters mere months apart, thanks to her dad and his two girlfriends. All three women and three sisters grew up together and still get along just fine.
Brian Levy, who by the way is a black belt professional Aikido practitioner and trainer, had a related but dissimilar experience. In the process of dating two very different women Brian got to learn two languages. That's because one of the girlfriends was Swedish and the other Romanian. If you can't even believe such a thing is possible, take a listen to Brian speaking fluent Romanian and Swedish and explaining the Swedish marital common law that can see a guy get just screwed as the the world of US monogamy.
Jeff Schmidtke knows something about post-nuptial agreements, which can apparently get you out of being destroyed in a divorce if you and your spouse have agreed ahead of time, but still after you got married, that it's totally cool to date other people.
There are apparently a number of ways you can structure a relationship these days, and they're pretty much all represented around the table here at Happy Hour.
Meanwhile, in the normally more "truculent" and "bellicose" (10 bonus points if you have a single clue what that means) world of rock'n'roll, folk and psyche-pop, Jeff premieres dazzling brand new music off the new album from his band, Shadow Brother, and Andrew Duhon premieres a song he wrote just hours earlier about nostalgia for the warmth of monogamy in jail.
This is an absolute classic New Orleans conversation, a must listen Happy Hour.
