Gov’t Mule: Balancing evocative songs and expressive improvisation, Gov’t Mule is a band rooted in both the personal and musical chemistry between its members. “It’s not one of those groups that can make a change overnight,” explains founding guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes. It is only after six months of rehearsing, jamming, and hanging out with bassist Jorgen Carlsson that he has been added to the band as their new permanent bass player, replacing Andy Hess, who joined in 2003
Dr. John: is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. His very colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford. During that time he also launched his solo career, developing the charismatic persona Dr. John The NIte Tripper. Adorned with voodoo charms and regalia, a legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album Gris-gris, which established his unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots. Locked Down is his 2012 album that features The Black Keys’ guitarist and singer Dan Auerbach as guitarist, background vocalist and producer.

Louisville goes Gaga over Lady Gaga and the “The Monster Ball Tour”

Lady Gaga

Saturday evening the KFC Yum Center

Lady Gaga

hosted Lady Gaga’s “The Monster Ball Tour”. The elaborate production thrilled its  diverse audience who dressed for the event in everything from glam outfits to bubble wrap dresses. Many of the sold out crowd wore face paint and dressed in Gaga style for the show.

Lady Gaga played nearly two hours changing outfits and stage sets frequently throughout the performance. She interacted with her fans during and between songs expressing her opinions on diversity, sex, bullying while always encouraging them to get out of your seats and dance.

The tight photography restrictions which limited photographers to only songs six, “Fame” and seven, Love Game”. We were required to stay with our guide and not allowed to watch the first portion of the show until we finished with the photography.

I did watch the remainder of the performance, Lady Gaga has musical talent and a great cast of dancers and musicians. The stage effects and costume changes were a mix of Glam, Mardi Gras, Strip Club and Broadway production all combined.

It was a celebration party, lead by the new Pop Queen who repeatedly told her fans

” Everyone is different, you have to make the best of it and wear your mask with pride”

At least for this night, most fans did.
