It’s New Orleans: Happy Hour

Hosted ByGrant Morris & Andrew Duhon

HAPPY HOUR is a cocktail-fueled 60 minutes of random conversation with folks who have nothing in common, other than being New Orleanians in a bar. Featuring extraordinary New Orleans musicians playing live, host Grant Morris and sidekick deluxe Andrew Duhon.

Bopp Frank Lee – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans

Grant says in his introduction to Happy Hour, “When you pull up a bar stool in New Orleans you never know who’s going to be sitting on either side of you.” Today there was no way you could have predicted this turn in the conversation.

Chris Lee is best know in New Orleans as front man for the 90’s rock band Supagroup who toured the world, made 7 records and had 4 Top 40 hits. So it’s going to surprise you what Chris has to say after he plays a song and apologizes for not rocking out too hard in Wayfare so as not to disturb the folks who came to hang out and not be distracted by us.

It turns out Chris is involved in an alternative energy project that has the potential to change the world. As Chris says, “I hate this term but it’s a game changer.” And in case you’re thinking this is probably just another pie in the sky idea, it’s not. It’s real. It’s huge. And it’s probably happening.

Susan Bopp is no stranger to original ideas. Susan spends her waking moments – when she’s not deluding herself into believing that her college-age daughter is not having sex because she’s in Alabama where “it’s different” – helping people spin their good ideas into reality. Her other specialty is helping people find their true talent and true passion. She does her best today with this table but probably the beers and cocktails aren’t helping focus anyone.

Susan does lead Happy Hour producer Graham to face some realities about her fear of running and hatred of sororities. 

And just to complete the circle of “you never know who you’re going to be sitting next to” how about one of the strongest men in America who at one time was THE strongest man in America?
