Playing the Municipal Auditorium!

 On May 29, Professor Porkchop and the Dishes performed at the Municipal Auditorium for the North Louisiana Economic Partners (NLEP).  It is always a pleasure to play for NLEP, especially on a stage with so much history  from Hank Williams to Elvis Presley.  The newly renovated Municipal Auditorium is better than ever.   The acoustics are incredible and as always the Dishes laid it down!Muncipal

I had a great time the past couple of months playing at 2 Johns and Chianti’s Green Room for my friend,Winston Hall.  Winston rode a horse from Texas to Colorado as a final promise to his best friend, shortly before he lost his battle to cancer.  You can read about Winston’s journey by reading his blog, Journey for Jonathan.  Winston is now home safe and sound.    He is back playing at 2 Johns and the Green Room with Chris Allen.
