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.

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?

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

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.
