         I grew up on Orleans Avenue in the Treme. When I was a little bitty boy one day my uncle ran out the house and left his harmonica sitting on the kitchen table. That was it. It was on. It didn’t take me but five minutes till I put that thing in my mouth, stuck it in there upside down. To this day that’s still the way I play... Read More

Grandpa Elliot inspires me to sing and play my instruments to Jesus. He shows how to be happy doing what he likes to do. I do hope one day I can see him playing alive and give him a special hug. Edvino.Brazil.

The greatest singing saint
written by Zelda Visagé, August 06, 2009
With love from South Africa, grandpa Elliot, you are the greatest singing saint of our time! "Playing For Change" brought him to television here and what I found on the web is most outstanding. I get goosebumps listening to him, behind that voice lies the emotion you cannot express in words. You have to understand soul and blues - it isn't something you grow to like. Since childhood I've longed to visit New Orleans at Mardi Gras time and I hope when it's time for me to go, that's where heaven will be for me.
Grandpa Elliot is just such a character that draws us near to so many more others who pour out their hearts in music. These are the people who sing purely as a gift of love to whoever listens, not for personal gain.
You are most beautiful, grandpa.

A Huge Fan
written by Wendy, September 02, 2010
when I was lucky enough to meet Grandpa on his corner, I was already a fan-my daughter had met him while working on a movie in New Orleans. I spent practically one whole day in April of 2010 just hanging out with Grandpa and once in a while during the day, with his wife (who boughtt me a pop). He is an amazing talent and I have a song stuck in my head that he should do. It is an old soul song called "Touch Me and I'll be your fool once more' Bid Ad Downing did it years ago, and I loved it, but Grandpa would put that version to shame. Wish I could figure out a way to tell him how much I enjoyed that day, the video and pictures that I took, but mostly just listening!

According to my own exploration, millions of persons in the world receive the credit loans from various banks. Thus, there is a good possibility to get a bank loan in all countries.

Every one knows that life seems to be not very cheap, but some people need money for different things and not every one earns enough money. Thus to get quick loans or just consolidation loans would be a right solution.

He is the Man. I had the privalidge to meet and talk with Grandpa. He is a very soft spoken and kind man. I'll be down the French Quarter this year for Marti Gras and am looking forward to finding him again and hearing him play. Quit a Guy
