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.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
