Ginger Killed Jesus – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
New Orleans band Ginger and The Bee is principally a duo of Sherri Montz – aka “B” which stands for Beatrix Skiddo, her Big Easy Roller Derby name – and Scott Frilo who has red hair, like Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver, which back in the day by the way, before the Trump tax plan, was worth something.
Sherwood Collins was brought up as a Christian Scientist and has turned the CS principle of spreading love into a full time calling with a New Orleans twist. With the help of his superstar wife, Amy, Sherwood raises money for autistic and developmentally challenged kids by throwing a giant annual party called Beignet Fest. If you happen to be checking this out before October 7th 2017 make sure you check it out – it’s free and there’s every kind of beignet under the thankfully-not-so-hot sun.
If you’re a regular listener to this podcast you’ll know that our Happy Hour photographer is Alison Moon. Today Alison steps out from behind the camera and joins the conversation to try out marketing her line of workout clothes, LouisianaLegs. They’re custom made yoga and workout clothes that feature designs that begin life as Alison’s photographs. They’re very cool and Alison does a great job her first time out as a self-promoter.
In this Happy Hour conversation we learn a lot about marriage, friendship, religion, neatness, daiquiris, the other-worldly meaning of freckles, and the truth about who killed Jesus. April Stolf and Alison Moon both contributed photos (see if you cam tell who took what) at Wayfare.
