Anyone attending Indy’s Slippery Noodle blues joint during our winter trade shows will probably have heard Dave Ferrato.
A former leading voice of the eminent magazine Speedway Illustrated, Ferrato, a New Orleans native, has been playing clubs in the French Quarter and surrounding stomping grounds since his twenties.
An engaging and generous man with a keen insight on topics as diverse as Manx Nortons and Vincents to stock car racing, publishing and blues music, Dave has joined with some of his New Orleans musicians to create a remarkable album.
Several years in the making and just released, this new CD “Later, on Decatur,” is a collection of songs about the unique and eccentric people, places, and situations of his hometown. A favorite “Feeling so unnecessary” combines Dave’s voice with all the energy of a New Orleans brass section! Check out Ferrato’s new CD here: http://laterondecatur.com/
