Mardi Gras

Join us this Saturday evening, March 2nd at 11pm, for a trip down to New Orleans for a Mardi Gras edition of The Blues!  You'll hear from many iconic musicians like Professor Longhair, Dr. John, Beausoleil, Marcia Ball, Irma Thomas, the Neville Brothers, and of course, Cincinnati's own Ricky Nye.

If you love New Orleans as much as I do, you might want to mark your calendar for this year's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival running from Thursday, April 25th to Sunday, April 28th and the next week, Thursday, May 2nd to Sunday, May 5th.  They've added another day...the first Thursday...this year.

With Fat Tuesday around the corner, this week's blues show (Sat, 2/25 at 11pm) is full of toe-tappin', soul reviving music from New Orleans.  You'll hear from local piano legend Ricky Nye, Beau Jocque, the Jambalaya Cajun Band, and a favorite...Mr. Zachary Richard.  The second set starts off with the Honey Island Swamp Band, then Galactic, Dr. John, and Louis Armstrong.

This week, February 6th at 11pm, we're travelling down to New Orleans for a taste of music you might hear during their Mardi Gras celebration!  The show begins with two of my favorites, Lil' Band O' Gold and ReBirth Brass Band, followed by the iconic Professor Longhair and then the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
