Shreveport City Councilman Michael Long came by the Blues Jam last Monday, and even took the stage for a set which included International Folk Alliance Director Louis Meyers (considering this area as a possible new home for the conference?) as well as Shreveport Asst. Economic Development Director and world- renowned drummer Brady Blade Jr.
But I know the big question on your mind: How well does the Councilman play that thing? Well, I’d tell you how good it was, but better yet, here’s a little clip of Stan Hoffman tossing to Mike, so you can just listen for yourself! (As always, it’s better through headphones and/or cranked up really loud.)
With talented musicians like these guys working in the local government, and with great sites like Trudeau on Shreveport and WickedTickle keeping a spotlight on the treasure trove of artistic talent we’ve got around here, hopefully we’ll continue to see increasing support for Northwest Louisiana’s arts and music community.
