Gigs in the '90s

With my second visit to New Orleans this year alone coming up soon (the Ponderosa Stomp in October), I've been looking through some of the tickets for gigs from some of my many earlier trips in the 1990s. Of course, Jazzfest was usually the main attraction, but there were always some great shows taking place in the evenings.I wonder how many readers remember these great gigs.
Here are the details, as they are quite hard to read (click on the photos for more detail):
Top row: 26/4/1991 - Irma Thomas and Eddie Bo on the Creole Queen; 27/4/1991 - Deacon John & the Ivories, Ernie K-Doe, Barbara George on the Creole Queen; 25/8/1995 - Little Milton at The House of Blues.
2nd row: 26/4/94 - 5 Blind Boys of Alabama at The House of Blues; 24/4/1993 - Patti Labelle, Johnnie Taylor at the Municipal Auditorium; 29/4/1993 - Lloyd Price, Benny Spellman, Marva Wright at the Dewdrop Inn Revisited show at the Sheraton.
3rd row: 1/5/1997 - Taj Mahal at The House of Blues; 27/4/1993 - Barbara George at Maxwell's Toulouse Carbaret; 30/4/1992 - Charles Brown at Charlie B's Music Club.
4th row: 3/5/1995 - Texas Tornados at Tipitina's; 27/4/1997 - Neville Brothers at The House of Blues; 25/4/1998 - John Fogerty, Dr John at the Lakefront Arena.
