John Mooney, Marc Stone and Joe Krown
Feb 3 @ 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm
John Mooney, Marc Stone and Joe Krown @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
The king of the Delta slide guitar John Mooney, roots picking ace Marc Stone, and New Orleans keyboard master Joe Krown have joined forces to form an mighty acoustic Blues triumvirate that can rock your soul and shake the foundations. Mooney and Krown have both occupied the upper echelon of the New Orleans music world for decades, but have never worked in an ongoing project together. Stone has worked extensively with both of these masters, and ventured to bring them together and let the fireworks ensue. Collectively throughout their careers these three gentlemen have worked with a who’s who of great American music including Son House, Gatemouth Brown, Junior Wells, Bonnie Raitt, Allen Toussiant, Mavis Staples, Eddie Bo, Ernie K-Doe, Marcia Ball, and Dr. John. With an encyclopedia of knowledge between them, and the fire to push each other to their music limits, Mooney, Stone and Krown are a deep, soul shakingly funky acoustic Blues experience! “Mooney’s music is thicker than sweet potato pie and spicier than gumbo. His phrasing, timing and tone are the stuff that dreams are made of.” – Guitar Player Magazine “Marc Stone is a consumate Musician. The man does it all!” Bill Payne of Little Feat “Krown swings hard on the Blues while seamlessly blending the church and the street.” – Blues Revue Magazine for more info contact Marc Stone at marcstonenola@gmail.com or 504-723-6693

Alvin Youngblood Hart
Feb 10 @ 8:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Alvin Youngblood Hart @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
The cosmic American love child of Howlin Wolf and Link Wray! Known as a “musician’s musician,” Alvin Youngblood Hart’s praises have been sung by everyone from Bob Dylan to Brit guitar gods Eric Clapton & Mick Taylor. Since the release of his 1996 debut recording, the all-acoustic BIG MAMA’S DOOR, Hart has relayed his eclectic musical message around the world. A devout follower of the “no barriers” approach carved out by veteran performers like Gatemouth Brown and the late/great Doug Sahm, Hart aims to delight the masses and points to challenge the so-called blues purists. BIG MAMA’S DOOR was reviewed with blessings by Playboy with the prospect that Hart “had the power to bring the blues to Generation X” also stating that “Charley Patton would approve of Hart’s version of Pony Blues, and the cover of Gallows Pole is the coolest since Led Zeppelin’s”. Based on the strength of his record debut and the allure of his live shows, Hart received five nominations at the 1997 W.C. Handy Blues Awards. He was nominated for Best New Artist, Best Acoustic Artist, and Best Traditional Blues Artist and his album (BIG MAMA’S DOOR) was nominated for both Acoustic Album of the Year and Traditional Album of the Year. He received the award for Best New Artist. Hart also received two Living Blues Awards that same year. The anticipated sophomore release of TERRITORY in 1998 gave a rousing tribute to all forms of American music and received the Downbeat Magazine Critics’ Poll Award[...]

He’s played in four All-State Jazz Bands, the Grammy Jazz Ensemble, which included top high school students in the world at the 2003 Grammy Awards Party as well as the Tri-C All Star Jazz Band at the Tri-C Jazz Festival. He has continued honing his craft by pursuing Jazz Studies degrees at Cuyahoga Community College and the University of New Orleans. After joining the marines in 2006, his call of duty brought him to New Orleans the summer after Katrina, where he quickly assimilated into the local music scene as a highly skilled and sought-out trombonist. He has since completed his active duty services and spends his time performing throughout the city and traveling the world with several bands, including jazz ensembles, brass bands, and more.
