Given that we now had all the tapes, the artwork and almost everything, we resolved to commence our individual damn label! We produced Nora’s CD and then immediately recorded famous piano player and singer, Al Broussard. He was just about 78 at the time and experienced in no way been recorded before even while he’d been playing on Bourbon Road due to the fact the 1920s.

We did not do something for a handful of many years, but we arrived again about 10 years in the past. 3 years back we partnered with studio builder Dirk Billie and designedRabadash Recording Studio, and now we’re equipped to do about six releases a year and file other non-Rabadash artists in our planet class facility.”
