Gilded memories

The Orpheum celebrated the first anniversary of its spectacular renovation, which came 10 years after flooding in the wake of Hurricane Katrina shut it down. The fabulous Art Deco theater hosted Grammy-winning New Orleans funk/R&B keyboardist Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen, along with saxophonists Aaron Fletcher and James Rivers and trombonist Craig Klein. A portion of ticket sales will help replace school musical instruments destroyed by the recent Louisiana flooding, via the Tipitina’s Foundation.
