Matt Lemmler Quartet at Snug Harbor

Every musician from New Orleans has a story to tell about their Katrina experience.  Some left town, never to return.  Others returned as soon as it was possible.  Some are still desperately trying to return. Pianist Matt Lemmler is in a  fourth category.  He just got back.  Tonight he headlines at Snug Harbor with a great band featuring the guitarist Shane Theriot, the bassist Peter Harris and the drummer Herlin Riley.  Lemmler has made a name for himself with creative jazz arrangements of pop songs including the tunes of Stevie Wonder, which he featured on his last album.  It should be a great night and a wonderful homecoming.  Sets are at 8 and 10 PM.
