So today it’s New Orleans Corona Virus: Part 1 – the first day of the New Orleans shut down. Even the It’s New Orleans Happy Hour podcast is caught up in the global pandemic, though so far all that’s happened to us is we have to move off the stage of the Maple Leaf Bar to make room for Dave Jordan and Flow Tribe after they relocated here when the outdoor Wednesday in the Square concert was shut down by the city. So, instead of thousands of people gathering in the sunny outdoors while our small crew meets on the stage of the club, now thousands of people are crammed into the club while our small crew gets to hang out in the sunny outdoors in the courtyard. So, Yay Corona Virus Part 1!
Felter goes by one name, like Cher or Prince, who she’s the same height as. Felter, like Prince and Cher, specializes in making people feel better. She’s a motivational speaker whose contribution to New Orleans Corona Virus Part 1 is coming up with a whole new way to inspire people without catching their viruses.
Joe Gerrity’s contribution to making people feel good during the early days of New Orleans Corona Virus: Part 1 is selling them CBD. Joe’s company – Crescent Canna – makes what he says is not only the finest CBD available but, unlike other local manufacturers, it is actually CBD. Did you know what other people claim as CBD that you’re paying $60 a bottle for, is not CBD at all? Now that you’ll have plenty of time at home to do nothing but experimental stuff like trying various CBD’s you can find that out for yourself.
Doyle Cooper’s contribution to the sum total of human happiness during the era of New Orleans Corona Virus is substantial. Doyle is the leader of the Doyle Cooper Jazz Band. Maybe you’ve heard people tell stories of how they got started playing an instrument? No matter how many of these stories you’ve heard, you’ve never heard one like Doyle’s. It involves parents who are partying their asses off, a stoned baby sitter, and Jazz Fest Crawfish Bread.
