Free Fridays with the “Real” Davis Rogan

I remember sitting in the Rogan family’s uptown home listening to Davis trying to master the intricate piano work at the intro of Professor Longhair’s, “Tipitina.”  It took a while, but he finally got it right.  Since then, Rogan has been a fixture on the New Orleans music scene and with the success of the HBO series, “Tremé,” his name has become attached to his hometown.  Tonight he appears at Tipitina’s with his backing band playing catchy original compositions, like the song, “Strippers,” that the fictional Davis plays in an episode of Tremé.  Expect to hear some raunchy rap courtesy of one of the originators of the bounce sound, Cheeky Blakk.  John Boutte is on the bill too.  (photo credit- Steve Zahn)
