Live Music For All at Live After Five ft. 90 Degrees West

There’s something about live music and the summer that pairs so well!

What better way to welcome the warm weather and longer days than a free outdoor concert?

This Friday, May 6th, The Addison team will head Downtown to The Crest at Galvez Plaza from 5-8 pm to listen to music from country band 90 Degrees West at Live After Five produced by the Downtown Business Association. We’ll be around to answer any questions about The Addison that you might have, and of course, we’ll also be rocking out too.

Let’s start the weekend right. See you Friday!

About 90 Degrees West

Somebody once said, “If you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life.” 90 Degrees West is evidence of that. 90 Degrees West is a 7 piece, high-energy, modern country band based out of New Orleans Louisiana.  90 Degrees West covers such artists as Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride, George Strait, Carrie Underwood, and many more.  90 Degrees West also has a library of original music. 90 Degrees West has had the pleasure of playing some great venues, as well as some great talent(Billy Currington, Thompson Square, Big and Rich, and many more). 90 Degrees West’s goal is for the audience not only to have a great time, but to feel as if they are watching each artist live. To achieve this, 90 Degrees West has brought together 7 talented Musicians, each one bringing many years of experience and knowledge to the stage.  Now that you know what they do, it’s time to tell you who they are.

Doug Admire (Lead Vocals) has been singing and performing since the age of 8. A transplant from Texas, Doug has opened for such acts as Diamond Rio, Jerry Clower, Tammy Trent, Bryan White, and others. Not only does Doug sing but he also writes music that has been performed in Nashville at the Blue Bird Cafe, Douglas Corner, etc. Before 90 degrees west, Doug was in the band Once Blind, which toured all around the US and was sought after by Capitol Records. As with everyone in 90 Degrees West, Doug feels very fortunate to play with such talented people

Tony Serio(Drums) a native of New Orleans and a 30+ year veteran of the Louisiana music scene, Tony comes well equipped for the job as drummer of the band 90o West. Tony draws on his vast experience and versatility of styles which include Jazz, Funk, R&B, Rock, and Latin, but it’s his love of Country music that keeps him grounded.Tony’s talents have carried him across the country and across the globe to parts of Europewhere he has performed with hundreds of the world’s top musicians. As a songwriter/producer, Tony operates a home recording studio where he has recorded and produced two solo CDs entitled Backtracks Volume I & II. Tony has also recorded and produced records for many New Orleans area bands and artists. Whether it’s performing, recording, or just rehearsing, Tony brings tremendous drive, enthusiasm, and creativity to everything he does. His passion for music is evident in the way he lays down a groove. In his own words, “After all these years, I’ve still got the same hunger for drumming that drove me to become a drummer as a teenager.”
