Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis impressionists are hits for Louisiana Legends at New Orleans Mint
Written by 

LL-logoImagine attending a gala affair at the old but majestic New Orleans Mint on the outskirts of the famed French Quarter savoring the tastes of the best food this French, Cajun and seafood city has to offer.

 

 

Now, imagine watching and listening to the irreplaceable Jerry Lee Lewis and the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley along with the face and voice of New Orleans music, Armand St. Martin.

If it sounds too awesome, you are right.  Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis weren’t there, but their impersonators were— Broadway actors Levi Kreis (Tony Winner) and Brandon Bennett who impersonate Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley, respectively.

The gala was hosted by the Louisiana Museum Foundation.   Co-chairs were Mr. and Mrs. G. Anthony Gelderman III and Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Laucha.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
