We’ll be Right Back features interviews with business owners, thought leaders, civil servants, and individuals from every corner of the service industry. We discuss policy, business strategies, and grassroots initiatives happening across New Orleans, as we all adapt and chart a new path forward post-COVID-19.

On this week's episode of We'll be Right Back, we are joined by Howie Kaplan, the owner of The Howlin' Wolf! We shift our focus a bit as we discuss the impact of Covid-19 on New Orleans's music community, as well as the various initiatives to help them. We also discuss the coming "summer slowdown" for the music and hospitality industries.
