About Uncle George
"Around 1957, I was a junior, attending Jesuit High in New Orleans, struggling to keep up with the future doctors, dentists, NASA scientists, etc. I was self-learning how to play the chromatic harmonica, the vision of my older brother and mother, to be a classical harmonica virtuoso. We lived in a two story house with an upper screened porch in an older neighborhood of The Crescent City. In those years, high school R&R bands within the Big Easy used to "battle " each other over who was the best band in the City. Saturday night sock hops in school auditoriums were the battlegrounds. One such band was called the SPADES. All the guys were in Jesuit High. I, rather wanting to play rhythm and blues, approached the band for a tryout and offered my front porch(as a carrot) in which to rehearse. Trumpet, sax,trombone,drums,electric guitar. The guitarist, a sophomore, was gaining a reputation as being way ahead of his peers in playing skills... guy by name of Mac Rebennack. He lived about five blocks from me. So, we rehearsed several times until the complaints started flowing from neighbors. I got to play night train several times with the group, but it was apparent that my skills and the chromatic just weren't going to keep up with them. So, we parted ways amiably. Mac dropped out of Jesuit in his junior year , and, after changing to the piano and changing his name to Dr. John, made a bit of a name for himself. The rest, as they say, is history." -Uncle George, on the early days in New Orleans.
