first_imgThe 15th annual Bayou Rendezvous took over the Howlin’ Wolf on Friday, May 5th, after the official festivities for New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival had come to a close for the day. It was a massive musical affair, with nine bands performing across the two stages. The event is a perfect example of how charity and music go hand-in-hand, with a portion of the event’s proceeds going to the New Orleans Musician’s Clinic & Assistance Foundation, a charity that helps secure health care for the city’s many musicians.As is the Jazz Fest way, Bayou Rendezvous this year was jam-packed with special collaborations, sit-ins, and all-star groups that can only be brought together when hordes of world-class musicians flock to New Orleans during this time of year. One of the supergroup’s topping the Bayou Rendezvous bill this year was the Bayou Rendezvous All-Stars, tapping noted musicians Johnny Vidacovich (Astral Project), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Oteil Burbridge (Dead and Co., Allman Bros.), Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band), Stanton Moore (Galactic), and Eric McFadden (P-Funk, Anders Osborne) to round out its lineup.Building an “All-Star” band is more than just grabbing the best players available who happen to know the same handful of songs and throwing them onstage together. Matching playing styles and personalities is a big part of the equation. Luckily for all involved, the drumming duties were carried out by Galactic‘s Stanton Moore and ‘Nawlins drum legend and elder statesman Johnny Vidacovich. Their symbiotic style of play is born from countless hours of jamming between them, and this familiarity created an almost family-like vibe as the base of the performance.Not that Allman Brothers and Dead & Co bassist Oteil and Tedeschi Trucks Band’s organ and flute wizard, Kofi Burbridge, needed anymore of a familial connection—with the two brothers together, the energy skyrocketed. Add Ivan Neville, a man whose surname is one of the most evocative and synonymous with the sound of the New Orleans, and you have a supergroup sprung from the deepest of shared roots. This focus on family—musical and blood—fits perfectly with the charity beneficiaries of the evening, the New Orleans Musician’s Clinic & Assistance Foundation.Since 1988, the Foundation has helped the under and uninsured part of the city’s extensive musician population get the health care they so desperately need. Dedicating yourself to making music for the world to enjoy can be rewarding, but not as lucrative as one would hope. By providing a safety net to New Orleans’ many musicians, the clinic allows them to keep doing what they love (and sharing it with us grateful folks), and also provides a sense of well-being to their families as well.As such, when given the chance to help out other struggling musicians, players come in a little sharper and ready to give their all. Before we get to the sharing portion of the piece, we wanted to remind you that the caring part of this article never stops. The Clinic is always in need, and donations can be made HERE to this wonderful and necessary charity that keeps the music we love for nice and healthy.We’ve already seen some lovely photos from the Bayou Rendezvous from Chad Anderson and some fun videos from Dr. Klaw‘s set from our own Rex Thomson, but now let’s check out a few high lights from the epic set from this collection of top talent of The Bayou Rendezvous All-Stars giving their all for the twin causes of funk and family.“Get Back>Sing A Simple Song”“Will It Go Round In Circles”Jamlast_img read more

first_imgRoughly fifty students, led by Fossil Free ND, marched from McKenna Hall to the Main Building early Monday evening to protest the University’s current investment in fossil fuels. Freshman Adam Wiechman said the goal of Fossil Free ND is to push the University to fully divest from fossil fuels within the next five years. “We want the University to become an active voice in climate change and really take a look at those funds,” Wiechman said. The protest followed a talk by environmentalist Bill McKibben as part of the Hesburgh Lecture Series. “Bill McKibben, the inspiration for our movement, is the founder of the global divestment movement,” Wiechman said. “We decided to jump on the opportunity of him being here. We met with Bill beforehand; He gave us a shout-out during the speech. It was great.”Wiechman said they received bigger numbers than they initially anticipated. “We actually picked up a lot of people. We marched from McKenna to the Main Building, placing signs down along the way that were orange footprints that represented climate change impacts,” Wiechman said. Freshman Brittany Benninger said she was excited about the turnout and impressed by McKibben’s talk.“Bill McKibben is super influential right now, and we love that he was able to come out on campus,” Benninger said. “He gave a great lecture on climate change and the need to divest from fossil fuels, and that’s why we’re out here today.”Benninger said it is imperative the administration focuses on divestment in the next five years. “It’s really important that [the administration] understands that they need to take their money out of such practices and reinvest in some better, more sustainable and renewable income,” Benninger said. Freshman Abby Ferguson said she was also excited about the protest and the talk itself. “We had a lot of people join us from the talk, and I know we had a few people join us on the way,” Ferguson said. “We stopped seven times along the way to put down seven footprints for things that are the result of climate change, such as drought, sea level rise, ocean acidification and crop reduction.”Protestors were invited to sign a banner that had shamrocks in the outline of a globe. “We wanted people to sign to show individual support for the cause,” Ferguson said. According to Ferguson, the administration has been less than cooperative or responsive to any of the group’s protests. “I don’t know if Jenkins has had an official response to any of this, but if he has, I know it’s been basically to say, ‘Stop,” Ferguson said. “The administration has thus far, based on what I understand and know, has been really unresponsive, just kind of trying to ignore it and hope it’ll go away. But the goal is to not let that happen because this is important.”Tags: divest, Fossil Free ND, fossil fuels, protestlast_img read more
