HENRI SMITH / CHARLES NEVILLE
Henri Smith New Orleans Mardi Gras Concert featuring Charles Neville
Amadee Castenell is a premier tenor saxophonist and flautist who has been nurtured by 30 years of playing in the rich multi-layered music scene of New Orleans. He currently appears on HBO's hit series Treme.
From 1973-1983 he was musical director of the band Chocolate Milk, writing and performing on their 8 albums for RCA Records. For 30 years he has also been an important member of the award winning, legendary musical genius Allen Toussaint Orchestra.
When not touring, he is a much seasoned and in demand studio musician. Amadee has recorded with such legendary artists as Dr. John (Grammy award winning "Going Back to New Orleans"), Robbie Robertson ("Storyville"), Lee Dorsey ("Night People"), and Neville Brothers ("Fire on the Bayou") to name just a few. From Etta James to Idris Mohammed, Fats Domino, Irma Thomas and Albert King all have loved the tasteful phrasing of his sultry soulful saxophone.
See Amadee with Irma Thomas, Dave Bartholomew and Allen Toussaint in this music clips video from HBO's hit series Treme. On Friday, Henri Smith will perform some of the songs from this video.
New Orleans Jazz, Blues, Creole and Cajun Music Legend Henri Smith, Singer, Recording Artist, Band Leader, and Movie Actor has been thrilling audiences while touring the United States and Europe. His career started in his home town of New Orleans where he polished his sophisticated and dramatic music delivery. He frequently performed and served as the emcee at The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival -- the LARGEST Jazz Fest in the World!
After losing his home to Hurricane Katrina, Henri moved to Massachusetts. He now performs throughout New England with his all-star band New Orleans Friends and Flavours.
Less than 24 miles from Boston, the historic The Larcom Theatre is conveniently located in Beverly, Massachusetts only 3 miles from 128 at 13 Wallis Street, with plenty of free parking (see map).
This gracious showplace was built, in 1912, on the birth site of one of America’s most widely read nineteenth century poetesses, Lucy Larcom.
The Larcom Theatre's grand opening advertised that its interior was lit completely by electricity.
After seven years of wowing audiences with his turn-of-the-lastcentury- style stage magic production at the 1920 Cabot Street Cinema Theatre (just 4 blocks away), Cesareo Pelaez, the founder of the Le Grand David stage magic ensemble, led the purchase of the Larcom in 1984 and immediately set to work restoring its pristine beauty.
The Beverly Historical Society recognized Cesareo with an award for the integrity and authenticity of his restoration. When Cesareo finished his work there, the Larcom’s elegant horseshoe balcony, antique pressed tin ceilings and original silk wall coverings once again took you back in time to an age when American life moved more slowly and more deliberately.
Cesareo had a great love for antique theatres and is the one man who can be thanked for the preservation of both the Cabot Street Cinema Theatre and the Larcom Theatre. Today the Larcom once again opens its doors and beckons you to enter its historic world.
There is plenty of free parking at the municipal parking lot on Bow Street, about 150 feet away and at the City Hall parking lot about half a block away. You do not have to feed the meters after 5pm.Click here for detailed directions to the historic Larcom Theatre.
