Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horns
Apr 18 @ 8:00 pm

Meschiya Lake, Little Gem Saloon, New Orleans Music

Meschiya began her singing career at the age of nine, earning a regular gig and winning $500 upon winning an adults only singing contest in a South Dakota Steakhouse. In 2000 as a young woman, she met and began traveling with the Know Nothing Family Zirkus Zideshow and End of the World Circus – a troupe blending traditional circus arts with modern sideshow varieties where Meschiya honed her performance skills with such thrilling acts as glass and insect eating and fire dancing (dangerously twirling around on stage with flame-doused nunchucks). It was while touring with this troupe that she fell in love with and felt immediately embraced by the culturally rich and one of a kind city of New Orleans, her home base for the last decade and counting.In the Spring of 2007, Meschiya began singing with the traditional jazz outfit the Loose Marbles on the French Quarters Royal Street. Joined by jazz dancers Chance Bushman and Amy Johnson, a new revival of traditional jazz and dance consequently blossomed: Bringing the joy and vitality of New Orleanss spirit, wowing audiences both young and old alike, they toured the United States and Europe, playing on streets, in clubs, and leaving a trail of write-ups in publications along the way. Dan Baum of the New Yorker writes”Meschiya Lake rocks back on her heels, lifts her chest, and opens her throat like an air raid siren to croon in a thrilling pre-microphone style that…can make you feel by turns as though you were shivering around a campfire in a railroad (yard) or drinking in a budapest nightclub in 1938.” Back home in New Orleans, she delighted in participating in and watching the jazz revival unfold around her, with jazz and jazz dance fever bringing more and more musicians and dancers to town. Meschiya formed The Little Big Horns Jazz Band in the Spring of 2009 and, saving pennies from the street, she produced the first Little Big Horns album Lucky Devil to National Acclaim. On the 5th anniversary of Katrina, DJ David Kunian of WWOZ cited Lucky Devil as one of his four favorite releases of 2010 on NPRs All Things Considered.

Glen David Andrews’ no holds barred performances have brought him attention as one of NOLA’s brightest talents. His performances have been called “transformative,” “over the top,” and “otherworldly.” With the chops of a soul legend and the passion of a tent revival, Glen David Andrews is an inspiration. The music of New Orleans is steeped in tradition. Glen David Andrews has absorbed this tradition and given his life and work over to bringing it into the future. Andrews is bearing the torch of one of the worlds greatest musical heritages. He has been surrounded by the music of New Orleans since his youth in the historic Treme section of the city. He has become a champion of New Orleans, playing horn in numerous bands and even being featured in the Spike Lee Documentary “When The Levees Broke” (2006). This seems to be just the beginning for Glen David Andrews, a talent who, like his city, will not fade away.
