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 gotten a friend request on Facebook or an email from someone whose photo is a sexy looking woman who says she's from Ghana and you wonder exactly what the scam could be, Kimya Holmes can tell you first hand. Well, technically second-hand since it was her now ex husband who got scammed by someone he believed (but she didn't) was a woman, in Ghana, with whom he believed he was having some sort of an affair.
Kimya is not exactly the kind of woman to whom you want to try and explain away your internet transgressions: she's a trial attorney who defends people headed for death row.
Murray Roth is an attorney too, an entertainment attorney specializing in film financing tax credits. A few years back he decided to quit spending every waking hour pulling together cash for independent film producers so they can have all the fun of making movies and hanging out with stars like Eric Roberts and crossed over to the dark side. Now Murray is financing and producing his own movies through his production company, Upperline.
Nayo Jones also left behind the workaday world for the glamour of showbiz. When you hear Nayo sing on this show you won't believe (a) she grew up in Phoenix or (b) that she was ever a stockbroker or a bank auditor. Nor will you believe she's single.
In fact, surprisingly, all three of Grant's guests on this edition of Happy Hour are single. And none of them are on a dating site. So if you'd like to get a date with Kimya, Nayo or Murray drop us a line firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll hook you up. Nayo, Kimya and Murray are waiting to hear from you. For real.
