Friday Night Paxton's Pics

Chris on guitar, Jessie on bass, Chico w soprano sax, John trombone
Fun night at Paxton's Grill--I'd never been so no clue what to expect. I hadn't seen the band in a gig setting in months! Some kind couple right in front of the band, offered to share their table with us (when I asked to borrow a chair as I was weary of standing..) I was thrilled and even told the nice lady "Thanks and yes, we'd love to share your table and we promise not to make boring chit-chat and intrude on your evening!" (Plus once the band starts playing, I'm all ears for the music, not talking even to my very good friends! Not rude, just gettin' my "Music fix.") I did smile and thank her, more than once for being so generous as they were there for the Happy Hour and left after the first set or so. When they left, they were sweet enough to just give us a brief good-bye. Kind folks!

My perch in front of the group was a sight for sore eyes! Tough to get a group pic of the band, being so close, but still had fun snapping as they strolled. Jessie did her playing clarinet/bass/violin jig at times. Great music therapy as usual. What other New Orleans band sings the Beatles "Octopus' Garden?"... They do feature "other kinds of music, too."
Next, it was on to a hot double duty Saturday at Paddle fest & Anna Ree's Andouille.

Lagniappe's Next Stop Paxton's Grill

06/25/10 9:00PM - 12:00 Paxton’s Grill
126 W Loveland Ave
A sports bar environment, inside gig with A/C, family friendly (kid's menu online) Not sure they sell the beer above.

The beer in the photo is something that leaped off the shelf, into my cart, at Jungle Jim's. It was in the section where you can buy one bottle of beer. The label reads "New Orleans Dixie Jazz Beer!" Now I'm no beer aficionado, but I had to buy this one. It even has a keyboard design on it. How to get Lagniappe a gig doing their jingles? or a commercial? but I digress.

Hope this place has a dance floor or the band will have to Second Line or something!
P.S. Here is video of the place at end of soccer match.

Rivertown Breakdown Reminder Sat Nite

The Rivertown Breakdown celebrates the unique current of American Roots music that steams throughout the Ohio River valley. The flow of sounds and styles that sail into this celebration (i.e. Bluegrass, Country Blues, Western Swing, Jugband, Cajun etc.) essentially deposit into the banks of Rock and Roll.


The Rivertown Breakdown provides the folks of Greater Cincinnati with one evening (at one stellar venue) of entertainment from Cincinnati’s foremost players of American Roots music. Furthermore, proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to help save the PA Denny Riverboat Education Center. As CityBeat Magazine recently reported, “[this] historic paddleboat…has ferried students on voyages along the Ohio River, scooping up water samples and studying the aquatic organisms that call the Ohio home. For many of the young passengers, a PA Denny cruise was their first time on the water and the first time they recognized the importance of the river in their lives. During a Coast Guard inspection earlier this year, the boat was found to have significant wear to its hull and is now in drydock. Repairs will cost around $225,000, and it’ll be at least a year before the Denny is operational again.”


*Rumpke Mountain Boys (Bluegrass) *Magnolia Mountain (Country Folk) *Katie Laur Band (Bluegrass) *Queen City Zapatistas (New Orleans Brass Band) *Straw Boss (Rockabilly) *Jake Speed and the Freddies (Folk/Country Blues) *Frontier Folk Nebraska (Indie Folk) *Shiny and the Spoon (Ukulele Folk) *Mt. Pleasant String Band (Bluegrass) *Lagniappe (Cajun) * Faux Frenchmen (Gypsy Jazz) *Greg Schaber (Delta Blues) *Cincinnati Dancing Pigs (Jugband) *The Sidecars (Western Swing) *The Rubber Knife Gang (Folk Rock) * Marmalade Brigade (Gypsy Grass)

THE TIME: Saturday, June 5th: 8:00pm-2:00am.

THE PLACE: Southgate House: 24 E. Third St. Newport, KY. 859-431-2201
