Caravan Music Club, Friday 20th July 2012

With Lil' Band O Gold recently touring it seemed like a good time to have a tribute to the music and culture of New Orleans and I had been looking forward to this gig.

I did not know there were going to be dancing girls on stage and I even got to catch one of them when she jumped off the stage (there were too many people for the girls to be on stage all night), I might have taken a few extra photos of them.

The line up of singers was great with Continental Robert coming down from Sydney especially and most of Clairy Browne's band turned up even though she was singing solo. It was great to see Tracey and Loretta singing again and also to see Timothy Slater after the Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan with the choir last year.

Not forgetting the big band led by Andy Baylor who started playing from out in the foyer and marched onto stage like a street parade in New Orleans. There was even a full horn section for the night and percussion with rattling bones.

It turned out to be a great night with lots of people dancing and hopefully they can do a similar night in the future. I was also happy with how the photos turned out and decided to do an extra special bonus extended edition with more photos than I would usually put up as there was a lot going on.
