Live Music

Around this time of year, Swampboy starts feeling restless for live music. He drops small bits of info about upcoming shows, applying gentle consistent pressure. I’ve caught on to the brilliance of his strategy; it is the most efficient way to shoe-horn me out of my inward, holed-up winter state.

Eventually he wins me over by the excitement of it all and the promise of warmer weather than it carries with it. New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival usually heads up the series of information dropping.


Now I just have to figure out how to work this new digital camera he bought (that’s him in Manhattan buying it).

I’m becoming adept at still photos. But people in action — particularly musicians — I can’t figure out. We ventured out in the snow on Friday to see Big Sam’s Funky Nation in Hoboken. I took many photographs on a bunch of different settings. This blurry sample is the best of the bunch.


Does anyone know how to take digital photographs of moving images?

So more about winter music. Last week we saw Medeski Martin & Wood in Red Bank and have couple of shows coming up this month. I am starting to compile a mental wish list of performers I want to see this summer.

These gals are at the top of the list:

    Awww…look at Shep…you two are so cute! I hope you both get down to New Orleans this year. I know how much you love that city. It really feeds your soul, doesn’t it?

    PS: I had a great time with you and Jodi today!
