It's the next best thing to being there. 3:15-4:15 PM Central Daylight Time.

So, listen!

Feature Article, Front Page

To get to Kirk Jopseph's front page article in the Times Picayune (our daily paper), you can try this link, then select the article entitled "Sousafunk Synergy," but you may be required to enter your zip code, gender and year of birth before you get the article. That's not asking too much, is it?

Kirk Joseph on the Front Page

Welcome to the Backyard Blog. We have a lot of catching up to do here, with so much happening these days. But how's this for a start:

Tomorrow's Times Picayune (New Orleans' daily paper) is doing a front page feature article on Kirk Joseph and his Backyard Groove project, in conjunction with the bands appearance at Jazz Fest.

Friday, April 29, 2005- Jazz & Heritage Stage,
3:15-4:15 PM with a CD signing event at the Virgin Records tent at 4:30PM.

Catch the band tonight (technically, tomorrow morning) at The Blue Nile on Frenchman Street for a 2:00 AM show. Come a few hours earlier and you can Kirk playing with the Forgotten Souls Brass Band at The Blue Nile as well.

I think Kirk and saxophonist Tim Green (who plays with Anders Osborne and just about everyone else at times) must be tied for the title of Most Gigs During the Week of Jazz Fest. Kevin O'Day is definitely a conternder as well. Actually, most of the band is in the running here, but Kirk and Tim are routinely racking up numbers like 4 gigs in a 24 hour period.

You can show your appreciation for all the hard work these guys are doing to keep you entertained by catching some live shows and buying CDs.

Hope to see you at the show tonight!
