Thursday with Songs and Champagne!

Happy Thursday!

Tom Hook
It's a great night to hang out at City Park and enjoy Tom Hook for the Twilight Garden Concert Series! Musician, songwriter, historian, Tom will be joined by some of New Orleans finest musicians, and will perform music of Tom Waits and Randy Newman, along with some New Orleans R&B, jazz standards, and originals. The gates open up at 5:00 pm and the performance starts at 6:00 pm in the City Park Botanical Garden Pavilion of the Two Sisters...There is an admission charge, but hey, it's helping the Park out...$10 for adults and $3 for children.

Dave Malone
Need a little art, culture and music? You gotta go to the show at the Ogden Southern Museum of Art (925 Camp St.) - better known as Ogden after Hours. Tonight the Ogden has Dave Malone with Friends and Family. For more than 30 years, Dave Malone was best known as the guitarist/vocalist and one of the songwriters of The Radiators, with whom he recorded more than a dozen albums. The group performed over 4,000 shows in their 33 years together. For this Ogden After Hours, Malone will perform with his daughter, Darcy, Graham Robinson, and Steve Spitz.
*Be sure to head on over to the bar for this month's signature drink - O-Sangria. And remember with your Ogden membership all of these excellent concerts are FREE!
