Vince Vance Creates New Orleans Video For Katrina 5th Anniversary
Written by  {ga=admin}

With the 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina blowing in hard this week, Vince Vance, or “Mr. New Orleans-Personified” is announcing his latest music video release, “I am New Orleans”.

 

Vance, who has been playing music for over 39-years has New Orleans flowing through his veins.  “With I am New Orleans,” Vance weaves  a haunting yet compelling musical collage of sights, sounds and history of the very place that a half-decade ago, the world debated whether it should or would ever be rebuilt.

After listening to “I am New Orleans”, there is little discussion:  New Orleans has survived, indeed. It is now destined to reach its full glory.  And, Vince Vance, one of the city’s greatest artistic talents, through his new must-see music video, wants the world to know there is, and there will never be another city like New Orleans.

 

Interview with Vince Vance
As publisher of Bayoubuzz, I had the honored opportunity to sit down and to discuss with Vince Vance, the influences that New Orleans has had upon his life and his career.
After seeing his video, “I am New Orleans” I decided I must get the real Vince Vance on video so I could share his personality and his passion for New Orleans, with others.
Here is a short video interview revealing the much insightful and somewhat zany personality of Vince Vance.

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.
