Make your plans to battle the winter blahs. Cold slush in our shoes can test our resolve to be nice to each other. As a kindness to your loved ones take a moment and take advantage of the Dirty Dog’s blend of upbeat jazz, comfort food and a warm reception by their good-natured staff.
The Dirty Dog understands that our extended Michigan winter has too many gray days and we all need a chance to get away. This month’s lineup is tilted toward high energy musicians who are known to drive out the damp and heat things up.
KICKING OFF THE MARCH LINEUP WILL BE:
PLANET D NONET
DETROIT – NEW ORLEANS CONNECTION
New Orleans is a city that finds reasons to celebrate. New Orleans musicians have always found reasons to gather and create good times even in bad circumstances. This week at the Dirty Dog we will find this same smart thinking. We can pretend that it is balmy outside while we listen to Planet D Nonet
In the past, when it has gotten really cold and messy in Detroit, I have often opted to spend time in New Orleans Somewhere I read ” When you bring New Orleans your sad story New Orleans will put a beat to it.” New Orleans can be a messy place, but it is ice free and pretty lively at the same time Detroit is having some dark days. New Orleans is a warm and friendly landing place for artists and musicians. I have been fortunate to have artist and musician friends in New Orleans. This has given me a chance to get to know the New Orleans that tourists don’t get to see. It has confirmed to me that New Orleans shares the same spirit that drives Detroit. Both cities seem to be able to take challenges and just get stronger. The cities have deep in their DNA the drive, resilience and rhythms that show up in their music. New Orleans and Detroit historically have seamlessly passed the musical torch back and forth, making jazz better in both cities.
This week I will be making the easier journey to the Dirty Dog Jazz Café, where we will be celebrating the beginning of a great month of music.
RJ Spangler has promised to bring the spirit of New Orleans to Detroit,
