Happy Birthday to early jazz bassist and trombonist, Emile Christian! Born April 20, 1895 on Marais and St. Roch Streets in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Christian started out playing in Papa Jack Laine's band before becoming the replacement trombonist in the Original Dixieland Jazz Band in 1918, later performing with Louis Prima, Santo Pecora, and Sharkey Bonano. Towards the end of his life Christian primarily played the string bass due to his set of false teeth.

- In your opinion, what is the best characteristic of Southern Oaks Plantation?
The best characteristic of Southern Oak Plantation is that its an all inclusive venue. My husband and I are from Baton Rouge but we love New Orleans and wanted somewhere that offered everything, that way we wouldn't have to travel back and forth to meet with so many different vendors. Southern Oaks goes above and beyond with everything they offer. A lot of venues advertise that they are all inclusive, but in reality, they aren't. Southern Oaks literally took care of everything for us! Even the week before the wedding when we came to the meeting, some things that we were going over I had totally forgotten about, but they made sure to let me know not to worry, and they'd take care of it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
