The Soggy Po Boys were born at the old location of the Barley Pub in Dover, NH on Fat Tuesday of 2012. The group was formed as a smaller Hammond organ group with two horns and had planned to play roots New Orleans funk and brass band music but misunderstood the gig’s timeline and ended up a set short on material.
For the unexpected last set they gathered around the piano and played acoustically, focusing on New Orleans early jazz standards and spirituals. They haven’t looked back, performing in this way weekly and all over the Seacoast with a full horn section and a sousaphone.
Check them out at http://soggypoboys.com/ , which has their new CD “Seedy Business” for sale as well as other information.”

In the last few days a bunch of trees have been planted in an area of rock creek park that has been used as an informal soccer field for many years. This field is the open grassy area along Piney Branch just north of the Woodner.
I’d be interested in finding out more about the thought process for selecting this area for new trees. Were there any consultations with the public about the best use for this space. Is also like to know what your readers think about planting the trees in an area that has organically become a popular area for public use.”
