Had a song in the 1980s no more one more chance
I’m from Louisiana. His name is Jo-el Sonnier’ “No More One More Time”. Great song, great artist. I love to hear him when he’s speaking Cajun French. It’s an awesome culture. I just love him. 2D

New Year’s Eve Kicks Off Regular Musical Line-up in Newly Reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge
Tuesday through Saturday night entertainment starts January 2012 at Hotel Monteleone
New Orleans, LA – With the New Year comes a brand new line-up of fresh musical entertainment in the famous, newly reopened Carousel Bar and Lounge in the Hotel Monteleone. The nightly entertainment kicks off on New Year’s Eve at 9 p.m. with Luther Kent, a New Orleans jazz favorite, and includes well-known artists and newcomers on the scene every Tuesday through Saturday night in January and beyond.
All the musical entertainment is free and open to the public. The 2012 line-up features a rotation of well-known New Orleans artists, Hotel favorites and special guests including Robin Barnes & Band, the Luther Kent Quartet, Lena Prima & Band, Eudora Evans & Band and the George French Jazz Quartet. Of special note, it honors the Hotel’s past as Lena Prima’s father, Louis Prima, played regularly at the Hotel back in the mid-1960s.
The Carousel Bar’s new lounge area reopened on December 30 after undergoing a renovation, which included adding expansive windows along Royal Street, enhanced décor and a secondary stationery bar. The current furnishings in the bar and lounge are temporary and will be replaced with new furniture to complete the renovation.
“Because the Carousel Bar is such an iconic part of the Hotel Monteleone, we were very careful during the renovation process to enrich without detracting from the atmosphere that patrons love,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing for the Hotel Monteleone. “In addition to physical enhancements, we also focused on the Carousel Bar’s musical entertainment by welcoming industry veteran Marie Long to our team.”
Recently appointed director of entertainment for the Hotel Monteleone, Marie Long will be in charge of booking regular entertainment for the famous Carousel Bar and Lounge. With more than 36 years of experience in the music industry, Long has worked with national and local talents, including The DUKES of Dixieland, Chicago, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Tony Bennett, among others. Before forming Extravaganzas, Inc., her own music production company in 1992, Long worked with Pete Fountain Productions and Ray Bloch Productions.
“I’m ecstatic to be working with the Hotel to introduce a variety of entertainment into the newly renovated Carousel Lounge,” said Long. “We are featuring classic jazz artists and legendary R&B singers to brand new on-the-scene talent. We plan on celebrating music legends and creating new ones right here on the corner of Royal and Iberville Streets in the Carousel Bar and Lounge.”

I live in Louisiana so i need a place in the south. I kinda want to stay close to home. And which is better bs of science or master in music degree? I want to be a recording artist and a music producer.
A Master of Music is the next degree higher than a Bachelor of Music. As a recording artist you wouldn’t need either. If you want to be a music producer you might want to look at a Bachelor’s in Music Production and Engineering.

I love the music for this and I was wondering if it is coming to any of these states. I don’t feel like going to up north. Is it coming to Mississippi, Alabama, or Louisiana.
Check online, I am sure they have a website for it.

I have to do a presentation for a class about southern culture.
I chose "How country music has inpacted the southern US states [Louisiana, Texas, Florida, ect.]"
Can you guy give me any ideas of songs to present, or maybe even a description? I’m talking real country by the way, maybe something like Johnny Cash’s generation of country music.
Don’t worry, I’m not asking you to write me a whole paper.
Maybe just a couple brief points?
It’d really help me out a alot 🙂
I respect all genres of music. Country western music was derived from blue grass music. PBS had documentaries on this. Classic country is the music from Johnny Cash’s generation. Best wishes! 🙂
