It’s officially summer in New Orleans. What better way to spend a balmy Sunday afternoon than cruising in a slow roll carriage ride through the Crescent City and playing music about our lazy Mississippi River, while on your way to get some char-broiled oysters? Join pianist, vocalist, composer and arranger, Davell Crawford in doing just that here…
The Bloody Sunday Sessions music video series releases its latest edition this week featuring Davell Crawford and his all-star band performing an acoustic version of his song, “River” live from the back of a horse-drawn carriage ride. If you’ve noticed a full-fledge film crew rolling around town on Sunday afternoons with New Orleans musicians doing their thing inside such a carriage, you’ve likely witnessed the making of a Bloody Sunday Session.
With a dozen music videos in the bag already, and a slew of new ones up their sleeves set for release well into the fall, you can expect lazy musical Sundays fueled with a few bloody marys to be a regular part of NOLA life for weeks to come. Stay tuned to OffBeat.com for advance, exclusive new releases soon. For now, enjoy “River” above before its official release later this month and see if you can spot the musical stars in the wagon!
