NOLA!!! Posted @withrepost • @danpetrosino Man, first Dr. John now, Art Neville. A physical loss for New Orleans, the music, the fans, the world of music in general and the ones yet to discover the great Neville Brothers, The Meters and the myriad of Nola artists, they backed up on tracks you never knew was them. (Art was on Lady Marmalade and tracks by Paul McCartney and even Robert Palmer) But, the spirit will always endure. That’s beauty of New Orleans. Ain’t no stopping the spirit of the music and the memory of its creators. Art was one of the most integral parts of NOLA music from the mid-50s, on.. His version of “Mardi Gras Mambo” is such a part of Mardi Gras & New Orleans culture, it’s embedded in the concrete in the French Quarter. Then came The Meters and they changed the face of Funk. They’re more poly-rhythmic, southern fried grooves were unlike any other and always, 100% Louisiana.. I was blessed to see him 3 separate times and each time was an experience I’ll never forget. As a musician, you can study that sound academically as much as you want, but you’ll never get it, til you FEEL the groove,..transporting you to NOLA, picturing yourself on the streets, soaking in the vibe, the delicious (and not so delicious lol) smells, the sounds, the grime and the beauty, the movement and feel of the people and just simply, the joy.. It has the most unique vibe in the country, as it’s had since the 1700s.. And Art was there in the thick of it all, creating music that’ll be heard long after we’re gone, as future generations will learn that unparalleled greatness, that is New Orleans and it’s music.. Thank you Art and safe travels on to the Great Gig in the Sky! #artneville #themeters #thenevillebrothers #lookkapypy #hammondb3 #piano #neworleans

When I was a kid this would have been the holy grail of turtle fishing for me. A hatchling spotted turtle. One day I hope to have a pond behind my house that has them all over... #lifegoals #turtles #life #love #childhood
The first time I went to Italy was with the wrong people. Who you travel with makes a huge difference.. so blessed to be able to do what I love and travel with the right energy this time. Still doing it, so clearly I’m in control of my own success. Making music, staying humble. Create art not just fame. #italy #tourlife #music #iammfc #throughmyeyes
Stay focused and let positive energy and success be your reply to anyone talking bs 💪🏽😊 peace ☮️ is within you, you just have to live in it... #life #selfworth #peace #success #happiness #love #giver
