    In this episode, we feature a guest spot I took on another podcast, Getting To Know You, with Tim Traigle. His show takes a look at people in a personal light, gaining information throughout the course of their life. On his show, I was also able to talk about how Neworleansmusicians.com began and what I have shaped it into. I thought it would be of interest to fans, friends, and members of the website. I hope everyone enjoys the show! And please be sure to check out the Getting To Know You Podcast when you have a chance.

    Pocket Chocolate

    Pocket Chocolate

    Pocket Chocolate, a New Orleans funk band, is the amalgamation of brass, keys, strings, and drums. They perform covers as well as originals, seamlessly blending together their favorite funk songs with improvisational jam sessions, and also play original material in their sets. Although recording their debut EP while constantly gigging has been a challenge for their 9 members, they are extremely active in the New Orleans music scene. In this episode, I sit down with Gabe, a member who plays bass, guitar, piano and sings, and Dalton who plays piano and percussion. And we discuss Gabe’s influences from childhood, his experiences with the band, their album EP, and so much more.

    Matt Rhombus of Totem

    Matt Rhombus of Totem

    Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, bassist Matt Rhombus' ascent into the world of music began when he encountered a family member’s extensive record and CD collection. Within the collection, Matt gravitated toward the nu-metal and alt-rock sounds coming from the speakers. Since then, the typical struggle of a child to find his place in the world was paralleled by the challenge of finding his place in the musical landscape around him. Transcending into dimensions of sludge, punk, and rock-and-roll, Matt and his band, Totem, hope to convey emotion as well as praise and revere the art form.
