Alexis Marceaux

New Orleans

New Orleans and Music are virtually synonymous.  I love music, all kinds.  I have my favorites like everybody else, but one of the things I love about New Orleans is there is music everywhere.  I knew early on that I would never be a “Star” since I have no musical talent to speak of, so it is no wonder that I am in awe of those who do.  After lunch one afternoon my husband handed me a CD on his way out to an appointment and said “A client gave me this.  It’s her daughter.  Listen to it and see if you want to catch her live performance later.  She is playing in the Quarter tonight.”  I figured I’d listen to the CD first, before deciding.

 So after seeing him out, I picked up the CD again. “Alexis Marceaux” I read.  “Pretty name”, I thought.  The picture on the cover showed an attractive young lady lying in the grass.    “Cute picture” was my next thought.  I guessed her age to be very early 20’s at best.  Still unsure this would be something I (in my old age) could relate to, I popped the CD in and “pretty and cute” were not what I was thinking as this big amazing voice filled the room.   Wow, could I relate and I definitely had to reevaluate.  “Powerful” and “Beautiful” were just the beginning.  Of course I was going to see her perform live.  Alexis’ “Elevator Ride” had just become my new favorite song.

The revelations kept coming.  Alexis, young as she might be, was no new kid on the block.  She had played her first public venue at 7 years old and had written her first song at 13.  This young singer-songwriter is also an accomplished piano, harmonica and guitar player. “Talented.”   A New Orleans native, Alexis and her family had lost everything in Hurricane Katrina and had to start completely over.   Katrina might have taken her home, but not her dream to play music.  “Gutsy.”  Her dream to play music in New Orleans, a city she loves. “ Heart.”     
 

Check out Alexis Marceaux, the young lady with a powerful, big, beautiful voice who is also a multi-talented performer with guts and heart.  I have seen and heard “Stars” with less to recommend them.  I should have known better than to judge a book or, in this case a CD by its cover.  Find out for yourself.   Alexis plays live venues all over the greater New Orleans area and is scheduled to perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in April.  For more about Alexis and her scheduled appearances visit her website: http://alexismarceaux.com/

It’s a Party for Monte the Lion and You’re Invited!
Hotel Monteleone celebrates Monte’s birthday with Gumbo, Hugo and friends
 
New Orleans, LA (May 9, 2011) – Monte the Lion, a friendly mountain lion and the official mascot for the Hotel Monteleone, is having a birthday party with his local mascot friends on Saturday, June 11 from 10am – noon and is inviting all children and families to join in on the fun!
 
Monte the Lion is one of the most loved – and most cuddly – members of the Hotel Monteleone family. Children attending the party will have the chance to take pictures with Monte on his birthday and play with his mascot friends including Gumbo from the New Orleans Saints, Hugo from the New Orleans Hornets, Boudreaux from the New Orleans Zephyrs, Riptide from Tulane University and Havoc from Loyola University.
 
A birthday cupcake making station will sweeten the mood along with food, pictures and games. As a special birthday treat, Monte the Lion will premiere his very own children’s book and will sign copies for all party goers. 
 
“Monte the Lion can’t stop roaring about his birthday celebration with his fellow mascots and friends,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing. “This will not only be a special day for him, but it will be a treat for everyone at the party and the Hotel Monteleone family as we see the tale of Monte the Lion come to life in his very own story book.”
 
Tickets to the birthday party are $25 per person (all taxes, gratuities and fees are included).  Everyone who purchases a ticket will have the chance to win four tickets to “Shrek the Musical” at the Mahalia Jackson Theater and to meet the characters live. “Shrek the Musical” will be in New Orleans May 31 – June 5.

I want a mid-priced hotel near bourbon street in new orleans over the holiday weekend. any suggestions?

I’m traveling to New Orleans over the holidays. I want a hotel near bourbon street/french quarter .. and want it to feature a hot tub and breakfast. any suggestions?

I would check out the Bienville House Hotel on the 300 block of Decatur
it is in the Quarter, and only about 3-4 blocks from Bourbon. Its a pretty nice joint and well priced from what I recall.
