About the author

Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and The Big Easy where he helped get LMB NOLA off-the-ground after launching in January 2011. Over the past few years, he has also contributed steadily to JamBase and Relix Magazine. Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.

    Great to see Brian Stoltz back into action..his on again/off again stints with George Porter Jr. are confusing to fans..What happened to Brians Band? announced and dropped? still waiting for Art Neville solo C.D. after 40 years as a fan!
