welcome from Boston Deadend. I have been to New Orleans 6 times but not recently. Last time I was there I found a small reataurant at the end of the St. Charles street trolley called Frankie's that was exceptional

...my YouTube is covers but my Soundcloud account has some originals on it...raised in church too so although my faith has changed through life experience...much of the old gospel tunes still mean the world to me...

His names Zale and he's a good dude that really enjoys music. He's always booking shows in other states and switches out gigs for bands that get him into new places to play. Contact him if you ever want a show in joe town or KC. I can PM you his number if you want.
...my YouTube channel is covers but my Soundcloud has some originals...

...I'll go check your guys stuff out soon too...and yeah man...I haven't been booking much...partially due to trying to get a business off the ground...but the more connections the better...once again...really appreciate the replies...

Im not seeing much paper in the new constructions down here. Seems like faux finish had taken its place but really not seeing much faux finishes either. Not sure about vinyl on commercial, that's not my area. Im trying to picture where there's a Hampton in Metairie, maybe in Elmwood? good luck!

Hey deadend. Manhattan blvd is on the west bank of river and Harahan is on east bank, but at the foot of bridge. The hotel in Harahan is perfect for what your doing. I actually live in Harahan.... I will definitely keep you in mind if I come across a paper job. Keep in touch!
