Glen David Andrew’s Gospel Brunch
Sep 3 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Glen David Andrew's Gospel Brunch @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
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.

Sep 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Mason Ruffner Band @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Mason Ruffner’s musical roots begin in the late 1960’s when the Fort Worth, Texas native heard the supernatural guitar prowess of Jimi Hendrix and the lyrical genius of Bob Dylan. Mason’s lineage can be traced to modern rock back to its post-war origins, digging the sounds of Jimmy Reed, BB King and Robert Johnson.  In his early career, Mason tried modern rock and folk music but the blues would not let go.  Robert Ealey, noted blues singer from Fort Worth, invited Mason to the house band, The Five Careless Lovers, at Fort Worth’s now legendary Bluebird Lounge.  What follows is Mason’s formative period as a guitarist and stage performer. Mason left Fort Worth and contributed to the music scenes in California and New York before finding himself in New Orleans in the late 1970’s.  New Orleans proves to be a rich environment for Mason.  After a few years of playing in bands on Bourbon Street, Mason decided to find his own voice and started his own band, The Blues Rockers.  The band had a steady performance calendar at Club 544 and played more than 200 live shows each year.  The Blues Rockers became one of the most popular bands in the Crescent City and backed blues legends, Lightin’ Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Memphis Slim and many more.  In his audience, you could find Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, and ZZ Top who dropped in to listen or sit in with Mason.  Mason can be found in performances or recordings[...]

Michael Watson presents: the Alchemy @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Michael Watson was raised in Canton, OH, born into a family of music aficionados in 1985. He first discovered his love of music and his instrument as he played around with the slide of the trombone as a youngster, officially in 1994. 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.
