Clarinet Road at Pearl Wine

(Event: June 20, New Orleans) I returned from my spring tour to find that my local bar, Clever Wine & Cocktails, had changed hands. Being the easy-going guy I am, for whom change is never a problem, I was happy to welcome Pearl Wine Company to the hood. ...Well, ok, I was wary at first, but seriously? The new owner, Leora Madden is doing a GREAT job. The bar and the shop are more inviting, and furthermore, she has a musical background. Turns out her grandfather, Frank Sylvano sang with Isham Jones, AND she is on staff with Tulane's marching band!

Anyway, since I have a few weeks before my summer travels begin, we found a date for me to bring some music to Pearl. We chose June 20, the eve before the summer solstice. Our "Midsummer Night's Social" will feature a five course gourmet tasting menu prepared by Mary Dixie. Mary recently left the kitchen at the Windsor Court hotel to devote her time to her own business, Lionheart Foods. Wines will be paired to each course and I will provide music throughout the evening.

Currently, I've got Don Vappie on deck but I want to think about the program a little more before I round out the band. Drop me a note if you have some ideas for me.

Doors will open at 7:30pm, music and dinner begin at 8pm. The event price is only $60, all inclusive. Because seating is very limited, reserving early is recommended.
