TVD Recommends: Pisces Party and Benefit at the Blue Nile, 3/18

The fifth annual party celebrating those born under the Pisces horoscope sign starts at the Blue Nile at 8 PM. Funds raised will be donated to the Music and Culture Coalition of New Orleans. Those are the fine folks spearheading the battle against the noise ordinance.

Acclaimed poet and spoken word artist Jose Torres Tama is set to MC the event. He will also perform a piece. DJ Black Pearl kicks off the night followed by a short tribute and blessing by the all female, spirit-driven vocal group, the Yemayayas. Live music from an all Pisces, all-star band aptly titled “Los Pescados” will begin at 9 PM.

The band features Sam Price (Honey Island Swamp Band, Otra and Los Otros) on bass, Eric Bolivar on drums (Anders Osborne, Bonerama, Tab Benoit), Randy Ellis on guitar (Chubby Carriere), Greg Hicks on trombone (Bonerama, Funk Monkey), Matthew Shilling on saxophone, Kristina Morales on vocals, and Alexandra Scott on vocals and guitar.

Since it is a “slow” night in New Orleans, special guests are expected. Last year, Terence Higgins and “Big” Sam Williams graced the stage.

Also expect a raffle, the beloved piñata bashing and food from various New Orleans restaurants and catering companies. Also incorporated into the evening will be a tribute to beloved DJ and musician, DJ Sean Real who passed away last year unexpectedly and held a weekly DJ spot at the Blue Nile for many years.
