  3. Mr. Marsalis at the end of the New Orleans: Let the Good Times Roll you all did a song that everyone is wanting to know the name of that song here, on your site and on facebook. Would you mind telling everyone the name of that song? I was dancing in my livingroom listening to that song and I found myself back home not in NO but in Lake Charles where I from. Everyone really liked that song and it was a good one to go end the program on…loving my hertiage! Thank you

  4. I unfortunately missed most of this, but what I was able to catch looked beautifully and lovingly done. I hope it will be available in the future for online viewing, or in some form for purchase.

  5. I’d love to buy a copy of Let The Good Times Roll!
    Made me laugh and cry and clap and remember NOLA fondly!
    Can you make a CD available? Or DVD I guess.
