Thanks for the props everyone. I know Matt, Megan and I (as well as everyone else) really enjoyed having everyone here. Nando... I've had WWOZ on for 5 years straight now. I couldn't name one top 10 pop song right now. lol Dr. Michael White is amazing... He's on the very short list for next year. :)

Ahhh.... Good ol' N'awlins. The city that care forgot. :) Our scene got a late start when you compare us to the rest of the nation. (Lindy hadn't really been introduced until around 2000.) Our scene is pretty small, but we make up for it with music that is second to none, (sorry Dave). Lindy Hoppers...

I was under the impression that Ellington had a swingin' arrangement of the entire Nutcracker Suite as well as some other additions.

Great for Xmas dances.

With Lindy Gras...

We obvioulsy focus on local live music as much as our budget will allow, and in regards to DJs, we like variety.

Traditionally we have one dance named "the new orleans music show", that is only DJd by locals, playing only New Orleans music.
