Geoff Coates & Co. play Bourbon St. Parade Add Video

A couple of weeks before he died (Dec. 16, 2011), Geoff sent me a DVD clip of a session at the Boathouse in Nerja, Spain on Sunday October 9th 2011. It shows Peter Treger (tpt) and myself (tbn) sitting in with his Spanish band - the tune is "Bourbon Street Parade" Geoff Coates is on banjo and takes the vocal, with the "Dixie Swing Band" doing its stuff.

I have been going over there to Spain for several years now and I generally meet up with Peter, who comes over from the UK. We will be carrying on the tradition and will no doubt toast Geoff's memory on occasions!

Best, Brian Towers
