Musical Movie Fun!
"Musically Speaking:" free screening of My First Name is Maceo by Markus Gruber tonight at the Antenna Gallery (3718 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:00 pm - MY FIRST NAME IS MACEO by Markus Gruber. One of the key sonic architects of funk, legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker first gained fame for his 1960s – early 1970s work with James Brown, whose impassioned shouts for a sax solo (“Maceo! Blow your horn!”) would make Parker the Godfather of Soul’s most famous sideman. After leaving James Brown, Parker joined Parliament-Funkadelic, becoming an integral part of the sound of hundreds of P-Funk recordings and concerts in the mid-late 1970s, under the helm of George Clinton and Bootsy Collins. Parker, who most recently has toured with Prince’s band, will be playing locallyl at Tipitina’s on February 28, two days after the screening of this documentary.
MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Good Music Tonight!
More fun on St. Claude Avenue! Tonight it's the Hi-Ho Songwriter Gumbo at the Hi-Ho Lounge (2239 St. Claude). Enjoy this community singer/songwriter showcase - more than an open mic, this weekly Tuesday event will provide a forum for songwriters to share their work and create community and opportunity for themselves and their peers. Each performer will have time for 3 songs and hopefully the evening will conclude with some jamming and collaboration. Tonight features Ashley Beach and Skogan. The show starts at 9:00 pm. Come play or just enjoy! Support you local Singer/Songwriter Scene!
