The 41 Players was formed by John Deley in 2010 because of his love for the music and cultural heritage of New Orleans. He asked drummer Ethan Eubanks to join him in the band and over several years and many gigs, they became co-leaders of the musical collective that play the music of New Orleans, from Louis Armstrong to Dr. John, and everything else in between. The group got it's name from Pier 41 which is at the end of Dikeman Street in Red Hook where John Deley lives, and where the 41 Players had their first Monday night residency at the now gone and beloved bar Bait and Tackle.
Dead Flowers got its start as a celebrated music-centered online platform for its writers' passions and obsessions. It was a place to read about the classics reconsidered, the obscure brought into the spotlight, the lost re-found, and the so-called "marginal" made to matter... Those elements animate Dead Flowers Productions, an enterprise devoted to managing, booking, and promoting bands and projects that ignite those same passions.
