Milo's Music Parlor, hosted by the President and Janitor of Milo Records, Kim Vu, is an intimate conversation with artists shaping the contemporary New Orleans musical landscape. Living legends, young upstarts, and national and international acts making a pass through the city play an intimate set to a small audience of music appreciators, then step away from their instruments and talk with Kim. The audience join in the conversation. Milo's Music Parlor is a unique New Orleans night out: something between soundcheck and speakeasy, on-stage, back-stage, and after-show party.
||CleanKelcy Mae - Milo's Music Parlor - It's New Orleans||Even in a town like New Orleans where life is often lived in public on the street and stoop, singer songwriter Kelcy Mae's heart is on her sleeve. And in her adopted city. At prestigious festivals across the country and in more intimate gigs at home, Kelcy's lyrics reveal her background as a published poet as Kelcy Wilburn and her melodies come from a blend of genetic Americana and church growing up in rural Shreveport Louisiana singing hymns. A long way from church, in this edition of Milo's Music Parlor, Kelcy tells Kim about the drama that seems to open up before her and naturally cry out for her pen and voice like moving to New Orleans, falling in love and finding herself living on the same block as a murder.||3/8/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanAlex McMurray - Milo's Music Parlor - It's New Orleans||For New Jersey native Alex McMurray, it was NOT love at first sight when he moved to New Orleans 28 years ago. But like many of us, he learned to love it, and found himself returning from New York after Katrina, even AFTER realizing "You have to be crazy to live in this Town", an idea that became the title of one of his post Katrina songs. His music can be described as lyrical and imaginative what you might hear if Elvis Costello and Randy Newman had a child together, but with distinct New Orleans flair and songwriting edge of his very own. An amazing multi tasker, Alex shares stories of his college days at Tulane, to singing sea chanties in Tokyo s Disneyland dressed up like Captain Crunch.||2/9/2016||Free||View in iTunes|

I love their music!!!
I personally met the music group and instrument players in Daphne Alabama and I enjoyed the beat and words
I felt a genuine reason to each word in the song as to how it went with the music rhythm
I hope they all do great with what they continue to do and prosper
