WHY: The Historic New Orleans Collection’s fall concert series concludes on Friday, Nov. 18, with a performance by the Tin Men and Grand Laurent sparkling wine and Tin Roof beer from Southern Eagle.
Performing together as the Tin Men since 2002, Washboard Chaz (percussion/vocals), Matt Perrine (sousaphone) and Alex McMurray (guitar/vocals) explore an eclectic array of genres, from pop to New Orleans R&B to rock. A mainstay on popular New Orleans radio station WWOZ and on the local club circuit, the Tin Men move easily from jug band to swing jazz to Motown to heavy metal and beyond. The band has released two CDs— “Super Great Music for Modern Lovers” (2003) and “Freaks for Industry” (2005)—and is currently working on a third.
