THE STORY:

There is a little bar in the 6th ward of New Orleans called Ooh Poo Pah Doo Bar that is much more than a bar - it's a cultural center and venue for local live music with deep ties to the community. Judy - the owner - is of the Andrews family. Her daddy - Jessie Hill -  had the hit 'Ooh Poo Pah Doo' in the early 60s.

You can see live R&B and funk at the Ooh Poo Pah Doo Bar several nights a week. Mardi Gras Indians bang tambouries and practice their songs with a blues band behind them. It's a place the musicians come to play for fun. Musical tourist - who got beyond Frenchman Street and into Treme -  get to fulfill dreams and jam to hits like Stagger Lee or Iko Iko. Before you get to the free red beans and rice in the back, you are bound to make a friend.

There is a lot of love in this little bar - but it needs more. The business is just getting by. With a few bucks Judy can make a some much needed basic upgrades to the bar and have some breathing room between bills. As New Orleans gets back on it's feet 10 years after Katrina, it's important that special little places like Ooh Poo Pah Doo survive and thrive. They are what keeps New Orleans real.

You have always been so welcoming Judy. I haven't been there in a while to sit in on drums but i gave you a card. However, I have noticed the bar's been closed lately and I'm so sorry to hear what's going on. With that being said I hope this helps and my prayers are with you and your family. I Look forward to jamming out with you again soon in a blessed venue down in the Treme. peace 10 months ago
