Perhaps no one has had more fun with the HBO-ing of New Orleans than musician Davis Rogan, Treme consultant, episode 7 co-writer and Steve Zahn acting coach, who capitalized on the show's success with gigs as Davis and the Traveling McAlarys and the "real" Davis. His guests for Tip's Free Friday Series include theme-song writer John Boutte and true bounce queen Cheeky Blakk. Free admission.
