New Orleans is more than gumbo, Mardi Gras, the French Quarter and drive through daiquiri bars. The heartbeat of the city has always been music. Music represents so much in the “Big Easy,” especially when it incorporates the melting pot of French, African and American cultures as New Orleans bred band Water Seed has. As drummer and bandleader Lou Hill said to Gambit Weekly, “There’s no place like New Orleans to play music.” As a Thank You to the city…
