Mike Dillon is one of the greatest and most inventive percussionists in the USA, or probably anywhere. Mike chose to move to New Orleans for one simple reason: the music. He's been on an interesting path to get here, not so much geographically as spiritually and psychologically. Being a New Orleanian also means you can drop the pretense and the b.s. that comes with living other places. If you want to know... Read More »

Frank Scurlock is ready to propose at the drop of a (top) hat.
