Dave Bartholomew, Sr. wrote the Antoine "Fats" Domino song, "Blue Monday," when in the early days of the band on the road, they woke up Monday morning & found out they wouldn't get paid for the gig that weekend. A classic was born!
MAYES2 is pictured in this YouTube with the man himself! We had the privilege of playing in Dave's Big Band for ten years. It was an incredible experience!
MAYES2 collaborated with friends & visual artists, NORBERT & LISA IRVINE of Asheville, North Carolina to create an art & music video.
Combining the stunning, visually kinetic, jewel tone colors of Norbert’s art, “Welcome!" with the Mardi Gras Indian song, “Big Chief," the video captures the feel of a New Orleans party!
We hope you enjoy this & will pass it on to YOUR friends & family!
