John Michael Rouchell's TYSSON Talks About the Future



John Michael Rouchell sits on a splatter painted couch in his living room glued to the television playing Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon. He’s on a Kubrick kick getting inspiration for his new gig with three-part local band TYSSON. Best known locally for his project, My Name Is John Michael, the singer-songwriter is stepping into a different world, away from jazz and into the modern age of electronics. Alvin Ford Jr., veteran of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Max Moran, who jammed bass with Donald Harrison, join Rouchell in taking the fundamentals of New Orleans music they’ve learned from growing up here to create an energetic, alternative pop sound fit for the future.

Even Monday nights in New Orleans can be chock full of entertainment. Tonight NOCCA sponsors a party in memory of native artist Daniel Price with local acts such as Trombone Shorty and newly minted TYSSON. Head over to Frenchmen St. for Aurora Nealand & The Royal Roses or Glen David Andrews. If you like to wind down on Mondays and cure those weekend blues, Christmas in the Oaks continues to light up City Park, but not for much longer; the show ends on Jan 3. On this date in 1814, the British set off to attack New Orleans. Now, more ways to celebrate the holidays.
