People Are Horrible – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
“People are horrible” is not what you’d expect a politician to believe, much less say. But Manny Chevrolet is no ordinary politician.
A perennial candidate for Mayor of New Orleans with the slogan “A troubled man for troubled times,” Manny is ready to come out swinging next time around, building on his previous trending statistics which have improved every election, all the way up to something like 120 votes last time around.
Sindy Scalfi doesn’t hate humans but she sure does love animals. She’s communed with gorillas in Africa and even though she’s put her decades-long singing career on the back burner and left her country music boots and hat in Nashville, she sings a song about animals, called “Animals,” on this show.
Graham Robinson and Daria Dzurik have one of New Orleans’ most original-sounding bands, Daria and the Hip Drops, combining a hip pop sensibility with steel pans, of all instruments.
How Daria came to play the pans is even weirder, and you might be surprised how vast and even weirder still is the world of steel pan players, stretching as it does from Pensacola to Trinidad.
Graham is a dark horse. When he’s not playing with Daria and the band he’s an A-list bass player, playing with the likes of David Torkanowski and Zachary Richard.
