Tidings from the New Orleans Potholes Brass Band
Good news! The Potholes have a tour lined up in Europe. If you are anywhere near where they will be, go see 'em! Here's the post which I received from band leader Rob Espino last night. I can't rave enough about him and the music that he creates.
To all my music, knitting and Scrabbling friends -- this is a do-not-miss! Support New Orleans' finest!
Thank you so much for everything! You are the best! Thankfully we have been putting together a huge New Orleans show in Europe. So far it is myself on tuba, Mark Braud on trumpet, Lucien Barbarin on bone, Kerry Lewis on Bass (we will switch off between sets), Gerald French on drums, Charmaine Neville on vocals, and Tom Fisher on Clarinet, and I'm not sure who the piano player is.
But here is a rough schedule of where we are going. There is more to add on but so you can get an idea.
