Staying busy and relevant in the New Orleans music scene isn't easy. It requires talent and commitment because there is always someone in the wings waiting to replace you, especially in New Orleans - one the the nation's busiest and most competitive music scenes. How John "Papa" Gros stays sharp is a lesson for all of us, and how he feeds energy to his bandmates and how he receives their inspiration in the moment is a message we can all benefit from. John knows What's Working because he's doing it every day.
Besides all of this, he may just be the coolest guy I've ever talked to.
