Singing and Dancing the Blues in New Orleans

June 18, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

So after a day of being immersed in the French Quarter of New Orleans it was time to be immersed in some music and some bourbon. To Bamboula's 514 Frenchman St we went. There was a kicking three piece Blues band playing in the corner. The beer was flowing and the music was pumping.

The main man was playing to the crowd and encouraging people to get up and dance and so they did. Young or old it didn't really matter. Nobody seemed to have any inhibitions about getting up and shaking their stuff in front of the crowd.

The below photograph was taken late in the evening, well after midnight. The crowd was thinning out, the night was getting a bit cooler and the dancers a little bit more inebriated. The girl on the floor didn't care. She was going to enjoy herself. The girl at the table looking on looks a little envious maybe wishing she had the same confidence to just get up and dance. No judgement, I wasn't dancing either!

The blue tint is a nod to Lloyd Russell Sherman. His photograph of Elvis Presley in 1956 was used on the cover of a compilation of blues songs recorded by Elvis called "Reconsider Baby".  Check it out. As we were heading to Memphis next (The home of the blues and Elvis) it seemed appropriate

As always if you click on the photo it will bring you to the gallery from New Orleans. Enjoy :)
