I don’t know if anybody who wasn’t there will ever get to hear this show, but if not, you might want to look up a dvd called “Make it Funky” which is a concert recorded at the Saenger in April 2004 with a lot of New Orleans musicians including Ivan Neville who was at this concert. It’s a lot like the “Lightning in a Bottle” dvd–plenty of good shots of the theater, plenty of rockin’ music, and lots of interviews with New Orleans natives and musicians. It came out a month after Katrina hit, so it’s hard to look at some of these places that might not be there now. Nonetheless, as Bonnie Raitt says, this is “history you can dance to.” Check it out.
