2018.03.10 Tipitina Tra La La

Last updated: None
We were guests of Norman Caesar of The Caesar Brothers’ Funk Box, at Tipitina's. Norman Caesar is a person D'Arcy plays with on Monday nights at 30/90 on Frenchmen Street. Norman played keyboards with Omari Neville and The Fuel featuring Omari's father Cyril Neville, the drummer for the Meters and the Neville Brothers. The bass player was Daryl Johnson, the original bassist for the Neville Brothers.

Tipitina was founded as a clubhouse for Professor Longhair. It was named after a well known song called Tipitina written by Professor Longhair.

Cyril Neville sang and played the Tambourine (called a "drum" by Mardi Gras Indians) with his son Omari playing drums.

D'Arcy also played Harp with Jason Neville, Omari's cousin, last Thursday at Vaso's.

Sorry, no pictures of the band as cameras are not allowed in Tipitina's.
