Perhaps the most popular event we produce other than our pinball tournaments are our “Live at the PinChurch” concert series.

Upcoming EventsFriday June 17th – The first ever PinChurch COMEDY NIGHT!

Modeled in part, after productions like “Austin City Limits”, “MTV Unplugged” and “Sessions at West 54th”, “Live at the PinChurch” is the New Orleans’ areas own version of a closed-studio live recording of an intimate event. It’s one-party party, one-part concert, one-part recording session and one-part intimate experience with special artists and performers, who share more than they would in their traditional outlets.

lprWe are proud of the amazing artists who have supported these efforts and look forward to bringing many more artists and performers to the space.

As part of the event, we usually cybercast the event live over the Internet using our custom-built audio, video and streaming servers whose technology rivals that of any other service online, including YouTube and uStream (and in many cases is superior). We often feature interactive performances where the artists in the space are communicating both with the live audience as well as the Internet audience in real time.

For more details or to help get involved with production or attend a show, contact us.

Charity and Benevolent Activities

We also work in association with various charity groups to produce benefit tournaments and raise money for many different social organizations, from Children’s Hospital and local food pantries to museums and charities.

Bantam Foxes - Live from the PinChurch 5/12/17 8pm

The PinChurch will be rocking with our next live show featuring, The Bantam Foxes!

“…drippy guitar benders and wailing garage rock.” – Alex Woodward, Gambit Weekly.

While everyone else is concerned with making music everyone likes—the “bangers” or the 32-writing credit pop tunes—identical twins Collin and Sam McCabe simply make the rock and roll they want to hear. Growing up, the boys were always fascinated with music and harnessed that intrigue into something constructive. After trying out countless projects apart, they came to the ultimate decision to stick together and have been writing at a near constant rate ever since. Originally from St. Louis, now based in New Orleans, Collin and Sam craft swift, sweeping and at times, haunting rock songs that just *click*.

VERY LIMITED # TICKETS AVAILABLE – BOOK NOW! See Below

There are no walk-ups for this show. Only tickets available are pre-order. You will be contacted with details and directions to the venue which is located in Metairie.

Bob Malone - Live From the PinChurch 3/21/17

Our next live show features the amazing Bob Malone, keyboardist for John Fogarty and amazing artist, songwriter and musician.   Tuesday, March 21, 2017 – more details soon!

We are proud to showcase the amazing talent of BOB MALONE, Live from the PinChurch Tuesday, March 21, 2017.   This show will be broadcast live online at: http://live.mystickrewe.com/   There are also a very limited number of public tickets available – see below for details.

 

BOB MALONE has toured the world as a solo artist for two decades and has played keyboards with rock legend John Fogerty since 2011. Classically trained, with a degree in jazz and a lifetime playing rock & roll clubs, theatres, and arenas, Bob’s sound is a one-of-a-kind hybrid of rock, blues, and New Orleans R&B, delivered with high-energy piano virtuosity and a voice all his own.

Born and raised in New Jersey, he has lived in New York City, New Orleans and Boston, and is currently based in Los Angeles. As a solo artist, Bob plays around 100 shows a year in the US, UK, Europe and Australia – including sets at Glastonbury Music Festival (UK), Colne Blues Festival (UK), Long Beach Bayou Fest (US), Falcon Ridge Folk Fest (US), Blue Mountains Music Fest (AU), and Narooma Blues Fest (AU). He has been featured twice at WWOZ Piano Night in New Orleans, and has opened for Boz Scaggs, Subdudes, The Neville Brothers, Rev. Al Green, BoDeans, Dr. John, Marcia Ball and many others. As a member of John Fogerty’s band, he has played with Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger, Jackson Browne, Jimmy Buffett, and Alan Toussaint.

 

What Others Are Saying About Bob Malone:

“Pulsating, roaring keyboard work that grabs you and shakes you until you cry for mercy.” — Keyboard Magazine

“With Malone’s latest offering, he has found his mojo delivering a superbly produced blues rock album packed with funk and oozing with soul.” — National Rock Review

“If he could find a way to throw that Steinway grand over his shoulder the way a hot dog guitar player does, I think he would.” — NOLA Defender

“Keyboardist Bob Malone may have been the best musician on the stage outside of Mr. Fogerty himself.” – PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE: John Fogerty brings the bayou to The Meadows

“I first heard him at a WWOZ piano night years ago; his combination of piano skills, witty original songs and lunatic stage energy was totally winning. Mojo Deluxe is a different experience; except for the accordion-and-strings backed “Paris,” this is hard-edged rock ‘n’ roll with New Orleans flourishes (“Chinese Algebra,” the only piano instrumental, is a quirky delight).” – OFFBEAT MAGAZINE: Mojo Deluxe Review

“There’s not a weak cut on this rich and varied outing, which is my pick for best blues album of 2015.” – MYRTLE BEACH SUN NEWS: Best Overlooked Albums of 2015

“He sings in a 2:00 a.m. closing-time bar-room voice ravaged by decades of cigarette smoke and whiskey (that’s a compliment). His scintillating electric Wurlitzer, Hammond B-3, acoustic upright piano, clavinet, accordion and stomp box…creates a truly rock and rolling idiosyncratic blues of personal proportions. In other words, his mojo is, indeed, deluxe.” – CLASSICALITE

“John Fogerty’s keyboard man shows what happens when a classically trained cat cuts loose and runs away to join the circus. Underpinned throughout by the kind of flawless chops he was raised on, this gruff voiced blues rocker has that special knack for hiding unabashed commercial chops in organic clothing.” – MIDWEST RECORD

CPR Training Class - Learn to Save Lives - 1/17/16

The Mystic Krewe will be hosting a CPR certification class, Tuesday, January 17 in Metairie at 7pm. If you are interested in attending and obtaining your formal CPR certification, use the form below to register.

Why Everyone Should Learn CPR

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and is an emergency procedure combining rescue breathing and chest compressions in an effort to reverse cardiac arrest. CPR is a method to reactivate the heart in pumping blood through the body. While cardiopulmonary resuscitation is not likely to restart the heart, its purpose is to generate oxygenated blood to vital organs, most importantly the brain.

If cardiopulmonary resuscitation is successful, it provides temporary relief to vital organs and body parts, thereby decreasing the likelihood of brain damage or death.

Effectiveness

In general, CPR is only effective on a victim of cardiac arrest if commenced within 6-7 minutes after cessation of blood flow through the body. It is important for members of the community to become certified in order to perform the chest compression and mouth-to-mouth techniques in case of an emergency. While cardiopulmonary resuscitation is not always effective, it buys time before the paramedics arrive to perform electric shock defibrillation on the heart. Nearly every community offers classes or certification programs through administrative departments, such as police or fire departments.

Why It Matters to You

Learning CPR can save lives. People die every day from cardiac arrest, due to drowning, smoke inhalation, and many other causes because family members, friends, and bystanders don’t know how to respond effectively in order to reactive blood flow to prevent brain damage or death. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is easy to learn, and classes are available all over the United States to instruct people how to deal with cardiac arrest and/or ceased breathing. Simple maneuvers, such as chest compressions of about 100 per minute and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation (where the emergency assistant simply breathes small amounts of air into the victim’s mouth), can aid in saving in many lives.

Register for this class below

Using Paypal you can pre-register for this class.  The price is $45 per person which includes the certification documents.   Upon registering, you will receive an e-mail with details and instructions on the location of the venue (in Metairie).  For any questions, e-mail events@mystickrewe.com

 
Registration is now closed. Contact a club member for access information.

Alexis and the Samauri - Live From the PinChurch 12/2/16

alexis-promo-slate

The Mystic Krewe is very excited to present our 8th, “Live from the PinChurch” show featuring the amazing talent of “Alexis & the Samurai” – These two local artists have been featured everywhere around the world, and will be performing in our very special, very intimate studio for a live cybercast and show.   You do NOT want to miss this one if you have a chance to get one of the very limited tickets available.

The Artists:

Exiled after having lost everything in hurricane Katrina, Alexis Marceaux has spent the last decade returning home and building up a career from scratch. The meantime has been hard-fought but fruitful, with appearances at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Voodoo Music Experience, SXSW, and several tours of the US and Europe. Alexis and bandmate Sam Craft met in 2009 and initially teamed up for Alexis’ sophomore effort Orange Moon (2011). Under the tutelage and engineering of The Polyphonic Spree’s Rick Nelson, the duo drew an all-star cast, 25 of NOLA’s finest musicians of every genre for a big, lush, indie-pop opus with a distinct Louisiana flavor.

Marceaux put out her solo release Dandelion in ’09, and its songs were picked up by various television shows (MTV’s The Real World, E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and others), but with Orange Moon, she’s elevated herself into a “songwriting force to be reckoned with” (No Depression), securing more media placements, as well as rotation in Starbucks cafes and other stores.

The duo will be on the road in the next several months in support of their brand new LP Move Into View.

This event will be broadcast one-time-only live, and there will be a small number of tickets available locally.  See below for details on tickets.

PinChurch Comedy Night!

The first-ever PinChurch Comedy Night is coming!

poster-pc_comedy_night-medi

Join us for our first-ever live comedy showcase at the Mystic Krewe’s PinChurch studios in the New Orleans area.

We will also broadcast and tape the show and release clips later.  You can watch online at http://live.mystickrwee.com OR if you’re in the area, you might be able to secure one of the few public tickets available to see the event in person!

Here are the performers:

Kaitlin Marone is a New Orleans-based comedian, writer, and feminist conspiracy theorist. Her primary goal in doing stand up is to inspire audience members to pull her aside after and tell her about the cults they were raised in. She teaches improv comedy at The New Movement theater and can be seen performing stand up all around the Gulf South. She produces Go Ahead, a weekly stand up showcase. She has performed in Fun Fun Fun Fest, Hell Yes Fest, and Moontower Comedy festival and has recently opened for Sasheer Zamata and Emily Heller.

Duncan Pace is a stand up comedian, writer, director, and host of the weekly NOLA Comedy Hour stand up open mic. He was chosen to host Cracking Up NOLA for the Mental Health Channel, was featured on the Viceland channel’s Flophouse, and was head-writer and director of The Goodnight Show, a New Orleans late night talk show, for 3 seasons. He performed on Hell Yes Fest 2014/15 and the Memphis Comedy Festival 2015. As a mainstay on the best shows in New Orleans, he has opened for Aparna Nancherla, Sean Patton, Louis Katz, Kyle Kinane, Dave Ross, and Myq Kaplan, and can be seen periodically around the country often as part of the Almost Homeless Comedy Tour. He graduated from Boston University Film School, writes and performs sketches for Massive Fraud, and is currently developing the upcoming live variety show Great Show Tonight.

Cyrus Cooper is an improviser and stand up comedian. As an improviser, he is a member of the group Dean’s List, whose resume includes performing an original improvised half hour piece under the name “Miami Improv Machine” at Fun Fun Fun Fest and who now hosts a weekly variety hour every Wednesday. As a stand up comedian, Cyrus has made several festival appearances (Crom Comedy Fest, Hell Yes Fest) and has opened for many national acts such as Todd Barry, Kyle Kinane, Natasha Leggero, Moshe Kasher, Aparna Nancherla, Sean Patton, and others. He cohosts the weekly stand up showcase Comedy Beast every Tuesday at the Howlin Wolf Den.

Lauren Bencaz – If there’s two things Lauren Bencaz knows, it’s that she has the e energy level of a tired baby, and if you talk enough about cats on stage, people are going to start offering you cats after comedy shows. Lauren’s harnessed her awkwardness into jokes about but her interactions with the world around her. Lauren has performed in the Scruffy City Comedy Festival, Columbus Comedy Festival, Ohayocon, and has opened for Dana Goldberg.

Addy Najera is a stand-up comedian based in New Orleans. Over the years she’s been compared most often to Lucille Ball, presumably for her comedic style and not her inability to complete work-related tasks. Addy is a three-year performer and producer of the New Orleans-based comedy festival, Hell Yes Fest. Once a month she hosts a gross-out comedy showcase called LIQUID ASS and co-produces (with the very charming Cyrus Cooper) the web series, House Call, in which comics are filmed doing stand-up in their homes. One day she may say something profound, but you’ll have to wade through a bunch of poop jokes first.

LPR - Live @ the PinChurch 5/20/16

LPR Amp Promo

LPR is a group of musicians searching for new and unique ways to expand the boundaries of Rock music. The band formed approximately eight years ago, and after a nearly two-year hiatus, the now four-piece is excited to get back on stage, with an entirely new set of material, more intricate and more expressive than ever before.

LPR has two full-length LP’s, “Flower Power Evolution” (2011) and “Lucid Being” (2013), and one EP, “Sounds of Rainforest Monkeys” (2012). The new album is sure to put LPR at the forefront of the indie rock industry’s emerging artists. The band was always incorporating funk and blues into their psychedelically infused rock, but now progressive rock and acapella elements have given the band a quality reminiscent of the bands Yes, King Crimson, and Pink Floyd.

The members of this group are all professional musicians in their own right, with an unparalleled understanding of music in general as well as each other’s idiosyncratic tastes and styles. LPR hopes to inspire a unique audience, bringing their intriguing blend of various genres to the eager ears of those craving new music.

The Tumbling Wheels (formerly The No Counts) - Live @ the PinChurch 3/4/16

nocounts1The No Counts are a New Orleans-based gaggle of musicians that draw heavily from American folk, country, and soul traditions. With influences as disparate as Bessie Smith, Hoyt Axton, and the Smothers Brothers, the group brings a peculiar blend of genres together for a sound that abounds in rich vocal harmony, dynamic instrumentation, and colorful storytelling.

Comprised of Jeffrey Sutton (vocals/guitar/violin), Rachel Wolf (vocals), Joanna Tomassoni (drums/vocals/guitar), James Stram (bass), and Sam Ottinger (guitar), The No Counts are emotive performers that will have you weeping into your gin one minute and spilling it on the dance floor the next. Either way, you’ll leave feeling shaken and stirred.

Greg Klyma & Bill Poss - Live @ the PinChurch 10.10.15

Singer songwriter duo from the New York and Texas, Greg Klyma and Bill Passalaqua will be performing Live @ the PinChurch on Saturday, October 10, 2015.  

Here’s what you all missed:

Bill Poss entertains with great songs and great stories, often in the same breath. Over the past 2 decades, he has cut a wide path, shifting easily from folk & bluegrass to country & rock. His years on the road – first solo, then with the Ginn Sisters and Fred Eaglesmith Traveling Steam Show – have provided him with great fodder for his songs and his stories. Poss is touring in support of his latest recording, Saltwater, and his first book, Bill Poss Travelogue.

Greg Klyma is a prolific songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and seasoned performer, bringing to every stage a catalog of material that assumes his audiences are both smart and able to laugh. His birth date puts him squarely in the middle of Generation X, but Greg is an old-school troubadour. His enduring themes, articulate and amusing stories, and populist ideals make him one of those rare artists who is carrying the torch of Woody and Ramblin’ Jack. He rolls in off the road, pulls out a guitar, and proceeds to take us back to the basics: family, love, gratitude, and laughter. It’s the timeless art of the true troubadour, keeping alive the American folk tradition.

Poss and Klyma became fast friends after meeting at the Kerrville Folk Festival early in the new millennium. Now a couple hundred thousand miles down the road, this tour is something of a reunion for these old touring buddies. Their show will include solo sets by both performers as well as collaborations reflecting the spark of the Texas campfire that set their friendship in motion all those years ago.

Don’t miss it. A limited number of public tickets will go on sale a few weeks before the event. Contact us if you’re definitely interested in attending. As with all our Live @ the PinChurch events, this will be a very special, very intimate gathering of super cool and interesting people among one of the world’s most-unique spaces and out-of-this-world sound quality. We’ll also be doing a multi-camera shoot and a live Internet broadcast.

This is a very special, private venue, with many wonders and surprises. Only a limited number of tickets will be available. This will also be professionally filmed and recorded; no young children please.

Eric Schwartz Live @ PinChurch Sept 26-27 2014

We are proud to announce the second event in our “Live at the PinChurch” series, featuring all the way from Los Angeles, CA, the amazingly-talented, Internet sensation, humorist, satirist and all-around killer-musician, Eric Schwartz!
schwartz2

 

For those that are unable to attend the shows locally, you can watch the event live here – at 8:30pm CST 9/27Visit: http://live.mystickrewe.com/

If you’ve been on the Internet, you’ve probably seen some of Eric’s socially-conscious and occasionally irreverent music videos. He’s an outspoken critic of various social policies including fundamentalist religion and the wingnutty politics. He also has a wide variety of hilarious songs covering everything from relationships to snack food spreads. He can unify even the most diverse audience with his amazing singing and songwriting that often celebrates the lunacy of the human condition that we all can relate to.
schwartz4
And when your stomach hurts from laughter, Eric can uplift you with a beautiful and heartfelt ballad that makes you ask, “Where the hell did this guy come from and why isn’t he on American Idol?” We’ll ask him that and see what he has to say!

Because Eric has so much material spanning so many different genres, we decided to put together two separate shows, one on Friday Sept 26th showcasing his more political/social material, and one the next night, Saturday Sept 27th showcasing Eric’s more musical and jolly comedy material.

The events will be professionally recorded for our Live @ the PinChurch series, as well as streamed online. There is a VERY LIMITED number of tickets available for these private shows. If you are interested, contact one of the members of the Mystic Krewe or use this form.

Only a few spots are available!  And only if you pre-order so we can help cover Eric’s expenses getting here.    There is a paypal link to order tickets if you contact us (mike@mystickrewe.com).   Those who order will be notified via e-mail with the location of the venue and details and will be “on the list”.  No public walk-ups are available – this is a private show.

A SAMPLING OF ERIC’S MATERIAL

Musicianship – In addition to an amazing voice, Eric plays multiple instruments with a virtuosity rarely seen:

Humor – Eric has a special ability to turn amusing anecdotes into hilarious songs. Here are some examples:

Political and Social commentary – Eric calls attention to the often bizarre antics of various social and political groups in his own unique style.

Eric’s parody of the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s recent decision allowing corporations to spend money as “free speech” led to the song, “Senator Whoever.”

Improvisation – This is where Eric will blow people away. When he combines his beautiful voice, musical ability and comedic timing with his improvisational skills, you’re in for a treat. He plans to get the audience and internet chat room to help him write a song in real-time he will perform at the show. Here’s an example of Eric doing a sponataneous protest at a recent convention that was picked by fundamentalists. Here he pleads with them to show him some evidence that their deity is real which has everyone but the protesters howling with laughter:

Viral Internet Videos – On more than one occasion Eric’s material as “gone viral” on the Internet, often in response to various social issues, like his famous song, “Keep Your Jesus Off My Penis.”
