Jermy “Lucky Lou” Tassin has been a fixture in the New Orleans hip-scene for years; not only as a performer, but as a mentor. He is the founder and coach of the Fresh N Stainless Dance Group, an organization designed to keep at-risk youths off the streets by providing them with a safe and enjoyable creative outlet. So it should come as no surprise that all dancers – young and old – featured in the music video for his new anthem “That Ninja Cold” are so spot on.
Filmed at various locations around town including Central City’s A.L. Davis (ne Shakespeare) Park and the corner of Dumaine and Derbigny in Treme, both the moves and the lyrics that appear in the video for “That Ninja Cold” are the result of Lucky Lou’s collaboration with his talented performing crew. All his backup dancers contributed some steps to the sequence, with Lucky Lou adding a few of his own and tying it all together in song.
Lucky Lou will be taking the show on the road, joining all dates of explosive cowpunk trio Felix’s summer sweep through the Southeast and Midwest, which kicks off with a can’t-miss show tonight at The Saint.
