WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Join us on Tuesday evening, July 14, 2020 at 6:00 pm for another edition of Niagara’s Summer MARDI GRAS Sessions.

We will continue the countdown to Niagara’s Summer Mardi Gras with this interactive, live-streamed presentation with musician, actor and famous New Orleans personality, Davis Rogan, streaming live from his home in New Orleans with his wife, Stephanie. Davis and Stephanie will walk us through the preparation of some quintessentially New Orleans cocktails while talking music and culture and maybe surprising us with a tune or two!

About Davis Rogan:

Davis Rogan draws his musical inspiration from Professor Longhair and Fats Domino, as does every New Orleans rhythm and blues piano player. What separates Davis is his lyrics. The wit, irony and self-deprecation echo Randy Newman, but the wry observations about life, humanity and New Orleans are uniquely his. This combination of roots music and sharp lyrics, heard in the 2005 release, The Once and Future DJ, drew auteur David Simon to Davis as David prepared his HBO series about New Orleans, TREME. Davis began working as a consultant and, over six years and four seasons of the show, served as an actor, a scriptwriter, a piano coach, a songwriter and the muse for the character Davis McAlary. By the series’ end, Davis had written or placed more music in the show than any other musician.

Davis is a fifth-generation New Orleanian who was raised in the Carollton neighborhood. He currently resides in Treme.
