On August 25, 2005 Hurricane Katrina blew into The Big Easy and destroyed more than just businesses and lives of the residents. The unique music culture in New Orleans was decimated by the storm that changed Southern Louisiana forever. In this documentary Robert Mugge captures the shock and sorrow of the local musicians who have been scattered due the storm, and documents their struggle to come home to New Orleans and revive their lives and the music scene that has become synonymist with New Orleans.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows well-balanced colors, good black levels, and decent shadow delineation. There are times when the imagery can look overly soft
Reason #131 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read it because I need it! For an avid audio/video enthusiast such as myself, Widescreen Review literally blows away the competition in terms of technical expertise and professional journalism when covering the world of cinema. Whether it is for the home or the local movie theatre, the magazine's articles are the most complete from my experience. This is particularly evident with topics that are covered over multiple issues. Instead of what could be a brief overview, there appears to be a journalistic determination to “do it right or don't do it at all” attitude from the very beginning. There are three key factors that I believe contribute to this achievement. One is the amount of research you do, and you do it with a resolve to touch as many bases as possible. Two is the amount of preparation that goes into each article or review, which most readers only get to read the tip of the iceberg as a finely polished product. Finally, your passion for the field you cover is as great or greater than that of your readers.
