Special Holiday party with Gal Holiday, and the Western Continentals. A portion of the proceeds go to charity. 
Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue: In an era of country music made shiny and plastic, Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue stick to sincerity when they write with a sense of humor the real-life stories of broken down rigs and hard luck on the road. To some it may seem unlikely that this classic honky tonk band calls New Orleans home. To others who’ve heard them it may come as no surprise that they flourish in a town where tradition in every genre is paid respect with high caliber musicianship. Since their inception the band has been led by the captivating Vanessa Niemann, an attractive songbird armed with powerhouse vocals and serious songwriting.

Last to Leave is their third album, funded by fan support and hard work. This grass roots spirit--combined with quality musicianship--have earned them the Big Easy Award (2008, 2009) and the Best of the Beat Award (2010). They’ve also placed third on the FAR Charts (Freeform American Roots Music) and top 100 on the AMA Charts (Americana Airplay, Americana Music Association).

Last to Leave was released for the first time nationally at the 2014 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, where the band opened for Lyle Lovett. In June 2015 the band is touring Switzerland, Germany, and the UK. But you’ll still find them playing at various local haunts where you can buy a $2.50 beer and dance a honky tonk twostep.
