My cousin Tim and his incredibly funky band from New Orleans had such a huge influence on me growing up. They would come into Lafayette every so often to play Downtown Alive, leaving me with many memories that I cherish to this day. These shows, along with Tim going out of his way to show his little cousin some love, were the seedlings of a life in music that haven't stopped growing since. Tim gave me my first guitar when I was nine, a late 60's Gibson LG-0, and taught me to play my favorite song of his, Red Beans & Rice. That's the type of guy he was--generous, loving and always ready to share his goodness with others. Tim eventually got sick and made his shift to into a higher octave but not before he left us with so many beautiful songs and sentiments down here in this one. It's with extreme honor and gratitude that I announce this Smilin' Myron reunion show. It will be a very funky celebration of Tim's love and light and I hope to see you there dancing with your eyes closed like no one is watching 💛 - taylor this Sunday 5/26!! @ @tipitinasuptown !!
