I'm Sally, originally from Fort Worth, TX but living here for the past two years - up until the move I was the lead trumpet in a 22 piece big band but apartment living has put a damper on the trumpet playing. I prefer going to concerts in groups.
So far most of my listening has been at festivals, Jazz and Heritage Festival, French Quarter Fest and some of the local restaurants - anywhere a band is playing live is a good place.
I like Delfeayo Marsalis and his Uptown Jazz Orchestra and I know Cindy Scott so I have heard her several times and enjoyed each time. I have had the pleasure of meeting and hearing both Branford and Wynton Marsalis and would love to catch Ellis sometime. I like Amanda Shaw and Trombone Shorty and have been trying to hear Kermit Ruffins so maybe this was meant to be.
This was only our first meetup but I think that this group will be a lot of fun - everyone seemed to enjoy the evening - looking forward to more great evenings like this one.
