• Wearing his flowered hat, Robert Gale, of Metairie, has danced at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival presented by Shell every year since 1990. Cajun zydeco music is his favorite, and Gale can be found stepping lively almost every sunny day at the Sheraton Fais Do-Do Stage. Gale estimates he has danced with more than 10,000 women in those 25 years.
