My wife even told me she was getting excited / looking forward to this rally so watch out. I also expaded my CD collection with the addition of two Allen Toussaint albums, The Allen Toussaint Collection and The Bright Mississippi.

18 days and counting...

Talking A Late Night Seminar? Fair Warning!

You can choose to be there and participate or prehaps you'll decide instead to commune silently with the big watchmaker in the sky.
If you happen to come down with a case of swine flu the next morning, we promise we'll all try to understand.


Here's the latest communication from Michael Arnone:

Hi Y’all
The weather is finally nice and I am here in NJ
We are now counting down till the CFF
Just a few updates:
Camp Madisonville is sold out. There is no more room for the big RV’s
We still have plenty of room for camping in the rough in Camp Baton Rouge.
All other tickets are now on sale on line.
The Box office for Advance Tickets will open May 19th Tuesday-Friday each week until the CFF. Look for the signs to the grey admin building at the fairgrounds. Cash or checks only please. There is a small transaction fee on each advance ticket order, not per ticket.
You can download a printable schedule here http://www.crawfishfest.com/Printabl...edule%2009.pdf
Our new commercial is now running on News 12 New Jersey. YouTube - Michael Arnone's 20th Annual Crawfish Fest
Check It out
See ya soon
Michael

Ok, guys I really thought that this might be a BS Crawfish festival but after seeing the music lineup it is real New Orleans artist and some of my favorites many just played at the Jazz Fest. Here is a link to Bonerama check out the streaming and free cut they have on their site. Best played loud.

Bonerama

This is a plug for my sons high school Jazz band I filmed them performing I Saw Her Standing There. This school was flooded out from Katrina, we are back. Be sure HD is on and go full screen.

Thank you for that Jim, but I do not see you signed up .... The Camp Madisonville is FULL, so no more chances of getting any more trailers. If the "maybes" are "yes", and the one other not on the forums comes, we will be thirteen. Last year Camp Madisonville was not full. I suggest folks not come too late in the day on friday if we want to camp together. The camping director has been contacted and I think they are going to work with us so we can be together. Mistral Blue and I will be there very early in the morning before the gates open to stake out our claim. Please try and be there for Happy Hour, we are toasting Wally Byam. If you are supposed to work that Friday and was planning to leave after lunch or at the end of the day, well here are some excuses(besides the obvious one the truth):

..."I am so sorry, I cannot come to work today. A squirrel chewed through the brake lines on my car"

..." I am so sorry, I cannot come to work today. I have Jury duty" (some employers will pay you the day off)

..."I am so sorry, I cannot come to work today. My house is being fumigated for Africanized bees and I need to be there to show them where the nest is"

... "I am so sorry, I cannot come to work today. The Publishers Clearing House people are coming to bring me my giant check."

... "I am so sorry, I cannot come to work today. I have the telephone company coming sometime between 8 and 12. The cable guy is coming sometime between 12 and 5."

... " I am so sorry, I cannot come to work today. My wife wanted to be exotic last night and we went to that new Bangladeshi restaurant.... my system is just not use to all those spices and you know what I mean...."

...." I am so sorry, I cannot come to work today. I poured some cereal and one of my corn flakes had the Virgin Mary's image on it. I have to wait for the Vatican to send over a representative to witness it. I hope to be in by lunch, but cannot promise."

Bottom line... be there. Everyone needs a vacation and this will be yours.

I so wish I could be there. I did retire but went back to work as kid in High School can make you do. It is so great that New Jersey has a Crawfish Festival, who knew. It is now on my list of things to do.

My wife and I have watched Marcia Ball perform at Jazz Fest for years when she really gets going on the keyboard she kicks her leg out constantly, you guys have fun and post some pictures.

If you want to listen to some great music before the Fest, there's a terrific radio program out of Minneapolis that plays Cajun, Creole, Zydeco, Swamp Pop, etc etc - "Louisiana Rhythms". You can stream it live on Friday mornings from 9 to 11 CDT at www.kfai.org , or listen whenever you want - the site archives programs for two weeks. It's a great community radio station, all the DJ's are volunteers and there's something for every taste in music. (My favorite show is "Bop Street" on Mondays, and not only because the host Pete Lee is my brother-in-law.....)

That might be my favorite video of the thread.

CRAWFISH FEST!!!

(He gets it and I consider myself very lucky.)

Looking at the schedule one wonders if one should be prepared to drink Jagermeister at the Jager Pavillion.

or it could just be me.


btw: I'm "friends" (FaceBook) with Ron Albanese and checked out the site of his band "Polka Dot". They'll be on the Kid's Stage. He seems like a nice guy and I might venture over there on occasion.

Boy and the boy will be at the Kid's Stage at least once a day getting their faces painted, I'm sure. (See post #6)
Baseball glove, hacky sack and a frisbee are now standard issue in the boy's backpack.
Cajun dancin lessons with mama was a real hoot last year and exchanging beads for good behavior is highly advisable.

Jager and I have not been on speaking terms for over 20 years.

I was with my friend Saturday night and I am even more excited to go than I was before.

I got my fridge installed enough for a trip. Now I need to hook up water to double check everything. Pray for no leaks people.

I need to make a list of what I said I would bring too. Going to have to re-read the thread.

Frank, I'll be bringing my Airstream bike and maybe even a Boy sized version I've been working on.

Big news..... Due to a VERY generous donation, breakfast is taken care of. So is happy hour for that matter. But please try and blow everyones mind with some killer finger food. You will need to keep your energy up for all that getting funky.
