Here is a press release from 2005, when Arlo Guthrie played a New Year’s Eve gig in New Orleans. New Orleans has always attracted musicians from all over the world.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 30, 2005
Showcasing the soul and spirit of the Crescent City, the Countdown Club presents the 2005 New New Orleans New Year Celebration sponsored by Glazer’s Companies of Louisiana and Pyrotecnico of Louisiana at Jackson Square on Decatur Street, Saturday, December 31, 2005. For information call (985) 630-4604 or log on to www.neworleansonline.com.
Arlo Guthrie & Friends arrived in New Orleans on December 16 to play two benefit concerts at Tipitina’s on the Amtrak City of New Orleans train. Arlo and musical friends had performed benefit concerts along the train’s route starting in Chicago and riding down to New Orleans raising thousands of dollars for small clubs and musicians to get them the “gear” they need get up and running. Arlo’s idea of helping to rebuild the infrastructure of the city’s music scene caught attention and support from across the United States and around the world. Arlo was the first artist to make a hit of Steve Goodman’s song, “City of New Orleans.” The Countdown Club extended an invitation then and there to Arlo to come back for the New Year’s celebration.
Finishing touches are being made to the gumbo pot that will ascend a pole to signal the midnight hour and launch a barrage of fireworks over the Mississippi River for the New New Orleans New Year celebration in the French Quarter. “ I think I can say without a doubt that New Orleans will be the only city in the world to drop a gumbo pot,” says Brian Kern of Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World and Vice President of the Crescent City Countdown Club.
Produced by the Crescent City Countdown Club, festivities will begin at 8 p.m. in traditional New Orleans style with the Coolbone Brass Band, followed by Vivaz from 8:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Arlo Guthrie will take the stage to perform his hit “City of New Orleans” and other favorites at 9:45 p.m. At 10:30 p.m. Louisiana LeRoux will play up to the midnight hour.
All eyes will then be cast to the top of the Jax Brewhouse Condominiums for the gumbo pot drop as a barrage of fireworks blankets the sky over the Mississippi River. Choreographed to music by New Orleans musicians, the exquisite “Symphony in the Sky” will be simulcast live on Magic 101.9 FM and WWL 870 AM and heard in 38 states across the U.S.

Good Morning NOLA! It’s cold and it’s wet! Yuck! I bet you didn’t need me to tell you that. The rain is here for the next couple of days and as cold as it is there is a chance for sleet and even possible snow. This is not the kind of weather you want to be out and about in. Personally my plans revolve around my bed and my couch for the next few days. The highs are barely getting out of the thirties if that. Our lows are staying in the thirties over night. Don’t forget to take care of the pipes, the pets and your peeps. It is cold out there. For you northern transplants out there it might be a joke to you but this is serious weather for us. We are not used to frozen rain or snowballs, unless it’s the kind you get from the snowball stand in the sweltering summer. Today is alsomy brother’s birthday. Happy Birthday Bill! Have a great day whatever your plans are and I’ll see you in NOLA! …. after it warms up .
Gray skies couldn’t dampen the Mardi Gras spirit as revelers partied in New Orleans on Fat Tuesday. They paraded, wore costumes and threw beads on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. (March 8)
Hi y’all! Well tonight is the night! Subrosan is finally here! April 19th @8:00 pm. For the past several months I have had the pleasure of working with a core group of people to bring you what we hope will be an amazing, eye-opening viewing experience. What a ride! It seems like yesterday my sister, brother-in-law, my husband and myself were sitting in the driveway talking. This all started back in July of 2011 when my brother-in-law Dwayne Coots was telling us about a mini-series he wanted to write and produce – Subrosan. Subrosan is a Latin variation meaning “under the rose”. There was certainly a killer story to be told, but it would also be a vehicle for local actors and actresses like myself to gain experience, get a reel of their work (you wouldn’t believe how hard that is to do, even in Hollywood South) and a chance for us to do something we had all dreamed of doing -make a movie. In July we said ‘Let’s do it.” In August, after gathering and auditioning actors and getting equipment, and securing locations etc., we said ” I think we can do this”. By October and November we were saying “We ARE doing this.” In basically 9-10 months around our regular lives and crazy schedules, Subrosan Entertainment has put together the first season of the adult thriller Subrosan. So tonight you get to see the culmination of a lot of hard work, determination and good ole Louisiana ingenuity. I couldn’t be prouder of the talented people who came together to share this experience. I also want to thank you, our family and friends for your support of Subrosan. It is much appreciated. xoxo
