VG contributor Deke Dickerson organized and served as master of ceremonies at “Deke Dickerson’s Tribute To New Orleans Music,” February 19 at Joe’s Great American, in Burbank. With backing from Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band from “Conan,” Dickerson welcomed several artists to perform tunes with ties to the Crescent City. Among them was Guitar Shorty, who played New Orleans  in the ’50s as part of Guitar Slim’s band.
