SmokinBill Obit: Anthony 'Tuba Fats' Lacen (10) RE: Obit: Anthony 'Tuba Fats' Lacen 25 Oct 04

The only time I've been to New Orleans was a six-hour stopover on a cruise ship. January 2001, if memory serves. It was a cold, rainy day, and we didn't get to see many sights, but we were lucky enough to see and hear Tuba Fats and his Chosen Few playing their hearts on at Jackson Square. They were really ripping it up. I suspect they were playing at full tilt just to keep the cold at bay. Hearing them play for a half-hour in the cold was the highlight of a seven-day vacation that also included stops in Grand Cayman and Cozumel.

I took some photos of Lacen and company, and I'd be happy to post them online if anybody's interested. Just e-mail me at or say so in a reply on this thread.
