Jazz at Jambe De Bois
Gene's Mom (Laura) and his cousin (Eric) came to visit us on Sunday for a week of fun in St. Lucia. Eric was on Spring Break from Med School at UAB which he told us was an extremely welcome break from the difficult classes and endless studying. Gene had arranged a taxi / island tour for them from the airport (located at the southern end of the island) to Rodney Bay (northern end of the island). By the time they arrived at the boat, they had officially seen more of St. Lucia's interior than Gene and I had! They enjoyed the cab ride and had a great time with Paul, their guide/driver.
Every Sunday night, the restaurant on Pigeon Island – Jambe De Bois – has a live jazz band, so we decided to take Laura and Eric. The music was great! We may just have to go back next Sunday. All of the instrumentals did a solo portion. The saxophone was probably our favorite, and the singer was awesome, mixing in some blues songs.
