Music connections revolving around Gloucester
Allen Estes‘ Cable TV show Local Music Seen features Brian King tonight at 6:30pm. On the show, Brian sings his hit Cold Rain, which was recorded by Irma Thomas, the “Soul Queen of New Orleans” (listen here). You can see Brian at Giuseppe’s tonight.
Irma Thomas appears in the HBO TV hit Treme (season 3 premieres this Sunday night). And in the Treme video below, you can see Irma Thomas with Amadee Castenell in the blue suit on sax right next to her (that’s Dave Bartholomew, who lived down the street from Henri Smith, on trumpet next to Amadee)
Amadee performs with Henri Smith here in Gloucester and was in Henri’s band when he opened for Aaron Neville on June 30 at North Shore Music Theatre (see him in the photo below, on the right next to Danny Heath on Trombone)
Before he went on stage that night, Aaron Neville had been reviewing mixes from his upcoming album, My True Story with his wife, Sarah, who directed the video, below, that was released exactly 1 week ago today:
Now back to Gloucester:
