Alexis Marceaux

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/

Does anyone know how to make a Jester drink from Bourbon Street?

The last time we were in New Orleans, a bunch of us got Jesters (the world strongest drink) made with 190 proof grain alcohol (everclear I assume). We loved it! we all had one and had the best time! Love to make them at home, but don’t have a clue of how. Can somebody help!

That sounds like a Hand Grenade, but sold by a bar that doesn’t have permission to use the trademarked name:

New Orleans Blues Guitar Slim Jr. Sweet Home New Orleans R&B Series

Guitar Slim, Jr., the son of New Orleans blues legend, Guitar Slim, has made a name for himself beyond his famous father’s legacy. His first album, “The Story of My Life” earned Guitar Slim, Jr. a Grammy award nomination. A talented guitarist in his own right, Guitar Slim, Jr., aka Rodney Armstrong carries on his father’s legacy as a blues guitar virtuoso and a masterful entertainer.

The original Guitar Slim was an early blues guitar sensation, both electrifying musician and entertaining performer. He is considered, along with B.B King and Buddy Guy to be one of the original blues greats. Unfortunately, the hard living of a blues musician took Guitar Slim too soon. He died in 1959 at the age of 34. Thankfully, before he died he was able to impress upon his young son Rodney the spirit of his guitar mastery. Because the name “Guitar Slim” was never trademarked there are many others who have adopted the name in an attempt to associate themselves with greatness. Only one, Guitar Slim’s own son, Rodney Armstrong, has both the right and the style and technique to carry on his father’s legacy.

In this video Guitar Slim, Jr. and his band, including two other masterful blues guitarists, play “Pride & Joy,” an R&B song at Banks Street Bar in New Orleans the location of the Sweet Home New Orleans Summer R&B Series. Each Thursday night through the summer Sweet Home New Orleans presents some of New Orleans’ most talented R&B and blues musicians. The Summer R&B series is one of the many programs sponsored by Sweet Home New Orleans in their “Bringing the Music Back to New Orleans” initiative.

To find out how you can help Sweet Home New Orleans preserve New Orleans’ rich musical heritage, go to SweetHomeNewOrleans.org.

This video includes three excellent blues guitar solos. Starting at the 3:00 point, all three of the band’s incredible guitarists take a turn soloing. Close ups of the guitarist’s fingers during their solos is included. Song 2 of this performance is a more traditional blues song and includes even more amazing guitar solos.
