Heads Up for Tommorrow Night- John Ellis and Double-Wide at the Blue Nile

Anyone who has been following my blog knows that I am a huge fan of the saxophonist John Ellis and his band, Double Wide.  You really can’t go wrong with a group that features New Orleans’ own Jason Marsalis on drums and Matt Perrine on sousaphone.  Those two players raise the level of every band they play in.  Ellis, who we claim as an honorary New Orleanian due to his longstanding connections with the city, is celebrating his latest release, “Puppet Mischief,” on Saturday night, April 3 at Blue Nile.  He is bringing along some special guests including the trombonist Alan Ferber and the harmonica master, Gregoire Maret.  Double Wide has played several times in New Orleans, but the shows have always been at Snug Harbor, which is a sit-down venue.  It should be really interesting to see this killer band when there is a dance floor involved.
