New Orleans street musicians
These are a few shots from my recent trip to New Orleans. This band, Doreen’s Jazz New Orleans, played on this same corner night after night. Didn’t matter how many hours they’ve been making music, there was always a sense of excitement and passion. Sure, this band is available for hire, but this night, they put themselves out there only for tips. Hustling for money doing what they love. Sound familiar?
As a small business owner, I gotta hustle doing what I love too. Instead of a tuba, I have art supplies. Instead of a clarinet, it’s a color palette. You know I could probably jam out on a pink drum set, but instead, I let my fingers do the tapping over my keyboard. Put those things together, my one-woman band can make some pretty sweet
New Orleans! Yea!
Adam and I are getting out of town on Saturday and spending a few days in New Orleans for our two year anniversary. This is our itinerary (according to me): eat beignets, take pictures of pretty buildings, eat a po’boy or two, short walk, maybe a nap, dip in the hotel pool, shove some BBQ shimp into my face, then some bananas foster, put on fake eyelashes and red lipstick, go out on the town and consume one too many adult beverages.
Wake up and do it all over. Three times in a row. It’s going to be awesome.
