Tonight!!!!-Naked Orchestra at Open Ears, Blue Nile

The band is back.  Creative large orchestra music- filling the void in New Orleans.  These musicians can take anything anywhere.   if there was ever a project to be supportive of (with your presence...)

If you missed the last one you'd be crazy to miss this.  and it's more bang for entertainment buck than you will find at the more famous local outlets.

Come find out about the Late Afternoon Breakfast.  Find out what a Nullibist is.

Not your old time swing big band throwback- not remotely.  Nothing is being kept alive that isn't showing full evidence of virile functionality.

Forward, into the future.  Letting go of obligations to the invented phantoms inhabiting mental cobwebbed rooms...

All done with music.

There will be electronics.
