DSCB & Mrs. Einstein – Bourbon Street Parade

Dutch Swing College Band & Mrs. Einstein – Bourbon Street Parade

Burghausen (Germany), 2007 March 17

A popular saying goes: “There are two kinds of music, good music and bad music”. For the true fan of good traditional jazz music the choice is simple, because there is only one Dutch Swing College Band. The Dutch Swing College Band started out as an amateur-college combo on liberation day (1945, may 5th) and through the years it has grown into a worldfamous jazz ensemble that has toured all five continents to much acclaim. The DSC played a prominent role during the post-war period. At the time many youngsters fell under the spell of the original Amerian music: jazz. The band, which has existed for more than sixty years, has given concerts all over the world and the sounds have been registered on practically all types of sound recordings since 1945. The band also appeared frequently on TV and in film productions. Through the years many big names in jazz music were backed by the DSC, from Sidney Bechet, Joe Venuti and Rita Reys to Teddy Wilson. The expression “The Haque School” was born out of the big influence of the DSC on the Dutch jazz scene. Deservedly many jazz fans consider the DSC almost as an institution. Fortunately, the Dutch Swing College Band has never presented itself as a show or glitter orchestra. The musicians have always succeeded in capturing the public’s attention with their excellent jazz performances. Cheap show tricks were absolutely out of the question. In 1960, the DSC turned professional. Throughout the music’s evolution and in spite of quite a number af personnel changes (and contary to many imitators) the DSC remained the showpiece of Dutch traditional jazz music. Bob Kaper heads the current line-up, in succession to Frans Vink Jr (1945-’46), Joop Schrier (1955-’60) and Peter Schilperoort (1946-’55 and 1960-’90). From the very beginning the most striking characteristic of the band has always been its unique and recognizable sound. In other words, no recordings of American virtuosos were ever copied: the DSC created their own interpretations, arrangements or compositions. An entirely personal approach. The current line-up of the highly experienced band has proved that the old name Dutch Swing College Band still guarantees professional performances of traditional jazz music of international standard!

Carry a pocket knife on bourbon street?

Could I carry a decent sized pocket knife while walking up and down bourbon street? Going into bars and shops? Laws down there? Never been there before.

as long as the blade is not longer than 4 inches it’s not a problem.

but wearing it say on your belt, in a holder is not recommended as the policemen/bouncers may ask you to leave it at home or in your car.

so carry it if you want but keep it in your pocket or out of sight.


Does anyone know a good recipe for Bourbon Street Chicken?!?

Anything like the one used by Golden Corral, maybe?!

Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts
1 teaspoon ground ginger
4 ounces soy sauce
2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/8 cup bourbon whiskey
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

DIRECTIONS: Place chicken breasts in a 9×13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl combine the ginger, soy sauce, onion flakes, sugar, bourbon and garlic powder. Mix together and pour mixture over chicken. Cover dish and place in refrigerator. Marinate overnight. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Remove dish from refrigerator and remove cover. Bake in the preheated oven, basting frequently, for 1 1/2 hours or until chicken is well browned and juices run clear.
Yield: 4 Servings


The Fleur De Lis Is The Symbol Used By The New Orleans Saints But It Is So Much More.

New Orleans

The fleur-de-lis is a symbol used by the people of New Orleans for years. It was adopted by the New Orleans Saints.

New Orleans

New Orleans Loves Its Fleur de lis

This was part of a controversy when the New Orleans Saints made their Super Bowl run during the 2009 – 2010 season. Ultimately the NFL got slapped down because the symbol has centuries of history in politics, dynasties, art, and religion. This is a symbol that belongs to history and the people of New Orleans not the NFL.

Attractions In New Orleans

It seems as if everything my family use to go to in terms of Attractions In New Orleans is closed like Six Flags. I really can’t find anything that I think would entertain a bunch of college students. We are going down there to volunteer but of course we have to have fun while we are down there helping. What are some happening places that are  Attractions In New Orleans for different age groups? Please take this question seriously, don’t reply with an answer if its not helping.

There’s still tons of Attractions In New Orleans. New Orleans has great shopping and eating. The Attractions In New Orleans are varied, to say nothing of all the great music there is to be heard. The French Quarter shops are mostly open, as are the Warehouse-Arts District and Magazine Street shopping district. And the festival season will kick off Labor Day weekend with Southern Decadence.

Before you go, to get an idea of the Attractions In New Orleans visit the Offbeat or Gambit Weekly web sites and check the entertainment listings for the shows, clubs and festivals that will be going on while you’re there.

Catch a show by one of New Orleans’ brass bands. Some of the best brass bands are New Birth Brass Band, Rebirth BB, Forgotten Souls BB and Soul Rebels BB. It’s a mix of jazz, funk, hip hop & sometimes r n’ b that’s great for dancing, and truly captures the spirit of the city.

Every Sunday, at Tipitina’s, there’s a Cajun Fais Do Do from 5pm-9pm. If you can, go one evening that features Bruce Daigrepont. His band is one of an elite few that are preserving the true spirit of Cajun music while updating it and making it relevant for a modern audience. Even if you don’t know anything about Cajun music, it’s worth going just to watch everybody dancing and to see this historic club. 501 Napoleon Ave. http://www.tipitinas.com/default.asp

Go to Mid-City Lanes, for bowling, music or both. They have lots of great rock, funk and zydeco shows, and you can bowl even if the band is playing. Geno Delafose, George Porter and Snooks Eaglin are among the best acts that play here pretty regularly. 4133 S. Carrollton Ave.

Go on a Haunted New Orleans tour with New Orleans’ greatest tour guide, Robert Florence. His company Historic New Orleans Tours is the best in town. I promise you won’t regret spending a couple hours with him as he tells ghost stories about the city. Tours happen daily, rain or shine. Visit the web site for the full list of available tours.

Visit Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World. It’s a little bit hokey, but it’s still fun to see the factory where many of the Mardi Gras floats are made and view them up-close.

You could try to catch a Tulane University football game: http://www.tulanegreenwave.com

New Orleans Hooray!

This is the video from my set at La Noir Comedy Theater in NEW ORLEANS! Some old stuff, some new stuff, enjoy it. I love NOLA now and you can tell because I called it NOLA. Honestly, the comedy down there is really tight and the people are so supportive, creative, and of course funny. Thank you New Orleans for the best trip of my life. I’m going to try and recreate that scene up here or (what is more likely than changing the CT) I’ll live there. Check ‘em out http://nolacomedy.com/
