New Orleans Moonshiners at Rock ‘n’ Bowl

Much has been made lately, actually not that much unless you count an interview I did with a British radio interviewer on Sunday at Satchmo SummerFest and Benjamin Lyons’ Valid Records e-newsletter, about the plethora of neo-trad jazz bands in New Orleans.  They are mostly congregated at the bars on Frenchmen Street, but tonight one of the better outfits heads to Carrollton Avenue.  They also recently played a prestigious gig at New York City’s Lincoln Center.   I have seen the New Orleans Moonshiners several times, and though they mine the same basic repertoire as most of the other bands, they stand out because they play some cool original songs.  Their singer also plays the banjo.  He brought to mind the late, great Danny Barker with his offhand delivery of classics from the New Orleans canon.  The show starts at 8:30 PM.
