Happy Hour with Monty Banks @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Join us every Friday Eve for a good time with Monty Banks! “Seattle native, Las Vegas Strip veteran and now a fully acclimated New Orleanian, pianist/vocalist Monty Banks is a refreshing blast from the past…” – Dean Shapiro New Orleans Breakthru Media Magazine, 2015 . Monty Banks is an authentic professional, experienced, award winning singer, pianist, bandleader, and entertainer.  His musical style is an entertaining mix of Rat Pack Era Swing, Traditional Jazz, and New Orleans R&B. Monty lives in Seattle every summer (June, July, August, September), and in New Orleans the rest of the year (October through May). When in New Orleans, Monty can be heard in the French Quarter, twice weekly  at the award winning Richard Fiske’s Martini Bar (previous operator of the lovely Bombay Club), and every week at the historic Little Gem Saloon, and at Mahogany Jazz Hall.  Monty also plays regularly in the fashionable Frenchmen Street Music District,  at Three Muses, the Apple Barrel, and the Spotted Cat. From the roots of Rock ‘N Roll, to the swingin’ good times of the Rat Pack Era, Monty’s adventures in music have taken him from New York City, to his native Seattle, to Las Vegas, to cruise ships, Indian Casinos, and now the city where jazz was born. “I love mixing the swingin’ sensibilities of Frank Sinatra, with the syncopating blues of Jelly Roll Morton, when combined with the upbeat, Creole boogie of Fats Domino,” he says. “That’s the right recipe for my kind of good times music!”

Happy Hour with Lilli Lewis
  Louisiana Red Hot Records’ award-winning singer/songwriter Lilli Lewis is known for her powerful vocals and progressive message. The “folk-rock diva” is a sought after featured performer on mainstages across the United States and abroad. A prolific writer, composer, pianist, and producer, Lilli has appeared as both artist and sideman with elites like Dr. John, Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Groov e, Little Freddie King, Dash Rip Rock, Gina Forsyth, Sharon Martin, Betty Shirley, and Dr. James Walsh to mention a few. Lewis and her band have been Regional Finalists for the Mountain Stage New Song Competition as well as Hard Rock Rising Global Band Battle. Notable festival appearances include the National Black Arts Festival, Atlanta’s Music Midtown, the Southern Womyn’s Music Festival, and various Pride festivals throughout the US. The daughter of a southern minister and a Chicago reared civil rights activist, her bent towards social justice is reflected in her music and stage show. In keeping with the groundbreaking and pioneering spirit, Lewis is the only female artist on the Louisiana Red Hot Records emerging artist roster alongside Corey Henry, Colin Lake, and Jonathon Boogie Long. Louisiana Red Hot was OffBeat Magazine’s 2015 Record Label of the Year and is known for launching and supporting the careers of southern favorites such as Trombone Shorty, Hunter Hayes, and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, among others. Her voice and showmanship have been described as “Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s virtuoso commitment to her instrument and Odetta’s vocal power, creating a show that is a force of[...]

Chris Mulé & the Perpetrators
Jan 11 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Chris Mulé & the Perpetrators @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
The name Chris Mulé might not be instantly recognizable to the casual music lover. But in his native New Orleans, he is well known among the musical cognoscenti. He has carved out a career as an ace sideman in a city crawling with gifted musicians. Adept at a variety of styles, the guitarist has played with dozens of local and national acts and established a busy solo career, and is now poised for a major breakout with Honey Island Swamp Band. Reporting from April of 2004, Keith Spera, the pop critic for the Times-Picayune in New Orleans said, “Chris Mulé has ingratiated himself with the local scene as a utility electric guitarist fluent in a number of roots music styles.” Mulé’s eclectic style draws on the influences of a variety of local legends including the finger-picking of Snooks Eaglin and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown and the chicken scratch playing of Leo Nocentelli of the legendary funk band, the Meters. His other influences, particularly on the slide guitar, begin with another Southern six-stringer , the late Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers. He also cites blues guitarists like Robert Johnson, Bukka White and Albert King in addition to psychedelic warhorses like Jerry Garcia and Jimi Hendrix as having impacted his playing. The traditional sounds of New Orleans, including jazz and brass band music have also seeped into the stew due to his regular affiliation with stalwarts of the local scene such as Kirk Joseph, the revolutionary sousaphonist and founding member of the Dirty[...]

Sam Price & the True Believers
Jan 12 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Sam Price & the True Believers @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Since his teenage years, Sam Price has been insatiably curious about all kinds of music. He’s spent his career avidly following the muses wherever they happen to take him, and the result is a pretty diverse resumé. The latest additions are his new band—Sam Price & the True Believers—and a trio side project called Soul o’ Sam. Highlighting his songwriting and allowing him to diversify his modes of creative output, these two projects mark a new level of self-expression for the multi-talented bassist. To borrow his metaphor, Price has built houses all over the map, but he feels like he’s finally laying the foundation for his ultimate musical home. These days, Price is probably best known for his work with the popular “Bayou Americana” rock group Honey Island Swamp Band, as well as for Otra, the electrifying Afro-Cuban band he founded 15 years ago after being introduced to Latin music by flutist/saxophonist Ray Moore. “[Otra] was definitely where my heart was at for a long time,” Price said. “I fell in love with the Latin rhythm thing—Afro-Cuban music in particular, which wasn’t really represented as much, a little more raw than the salsa stuff.” Delving into a subgenre of Cuban music might seem like an unlikely move for a white kid from Slidell who grew up listening to “the same thing as other white kids from suburbia” (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, classic rock, heavy metal, garage bands), but then again, Price’s entire career has been somewhat unlikely. “I didn’t want[...]
