  • Introduce Yourself

    I'm thinking that we need to do this again on the new board. Maybe it'll coax some of the new people coming along to jump in.

    I'm Susan, forty-eighteen, married w/2 (grown) children, from Mooresville, NC - self-proclaimed center of the NASCAR world. I currently work retail and my feet are killin' me but it's good training for Fest! 2012 will be my 11th fest.

    My board names comes from the fact that I'm a Terrance Simien fan (aka Beadheads). I'm also known as CBH.

    Next?

    2007 fest will be my 34th fest & David's 6th.

    We constantly look forward to our next festival when our friends will visit.

      OK I'm Mark. 47 years on earth. Married to Michelle (lady leo). 2 stepkids (adults). Been to 13 fests I think. The first in '88. We live in Lawrenceville GA about 30 odd miles NE of Atlanta. I like to tape shows. Please don't scream if you're standing next to me.

        Bryan, 45 from Austin, TX. Have pathetically missed every threadhead meetup ever. Will reform that behavior as this board was instrumental in my return to Jazzfest in 2003. Have made every day of 04 and 05 and second weekend of 06 and will make every day of Jazzfest in the future. God bless and help New Orleans.

            Wow, this is my first post on the new bored.
            I am Dan 43 from Boston. Last year was my fifth fest and first as a threadhead. Must say it enhanced the JF experience 1000%. I have been all around the world playing hockey and playing Marine and NOLA is one of my most favorite places. Welcome to the new place, everyone whether you are a returnee or newbie.

              I'm Lis, 40 years old, a wife and a momma. My daughter is turning 18 and is making her first trip to Nola with me Nov. 2nd. She is the light of my life. I'm a child protection social work supervisor and man is that stressful at times. I try real hard to get to Nola every 3 months or so because I need to....I miss my family down there (Ibjamn, Seefood, Amyloves and Eat_Mo). This will be my 4th fest and bringing 3 virgins this year Oh yeah, I have 2 dogs- Winston the newfoundland and Betty the mini-daschsund!

                Hi all. I am now KissmeKate, formerly saturnwreck. (I tried to create a new ID as Saturn, but the authentication e-mail never came. )

                I am 57 years old, married to Greg. We have four daughters and 2 grandkids. I am a nursing professor.

                Greg and I have been going to Jazzfest for 5 years and never intend to stop.

                      Yikes...this was quick. It seems just a little while ago I was sittin' drinkin' in Montana's bar and, well, maybe it was the absinthe. I'm Pete, married, no kids, two beautiful hounds (Zelda and Tosh) and I'm a hick from the hills from outside melbourne, deep south oz. I manage a refugee settlement program in the southeast of my city, am tragically addicted to live music and like CBH I just love Terrance Simien. Next year is gonna be my first jazzfest but I sorta already feel a part of the family.

                        I'm Dag, 50, divorced, fat, cynical and drunk in Mobile Alabama. 2007 will be Fest #12 for me. I'm lucky enough to live close enough to New Orleans to visit often. I like bloody marys, cold cold beer, spunky women, and horns. Lots and lots of horns. And I would like to eat acid on Saturday nights but I don't know where to find any.

                          I'm Kurt, 44, married to my best friend now over 25 years with four kiddos (13,16,18,20) who all love the fest. I've been a lostcajun for too many years (grew up in Lafayette, Houma, and NOLA). I return to South Louisiana several times a year, and that includes Jazzfest. Strangely enough, I am a....pastorÖ.yep, dats right. Some might think that this means Iím mean, judgmental, a guilt-tripper, and easily offended. Nope, none of the above. I work for someone who really didnít like religious, uptight-people, in fact he would rather hang with people who probably would have been into Jazzfest. I have never thought that seeking God and enjoying Abita and Jazzfest are any kind of contradiction.

                            Hey I'm Amy, born and raised in New Orleans. I'm 41 and married to a husband who fell in love with the Fest a couple of years after I did. Our kids are 13, 15 and 19 and our dogs are insane. I think this will be my 12th Fest and I only wish I had discovered it sooner. I'm a CPA (yawn) but have no idea why. I am also honored to be the sister of the lovely and talented piscesgirl.
                            p.s. lostcajun I second your emotion....
