Door 7 / Show 8 The Beat Within’s mission is to provide incarcerated youth with consistent opportunities to share their ideas and life experiences in a safe space that encourages literacy, self-expression, some critical thinking skills and healthy, supportive relationships with adults and their community. Outside of the juvenile justice system, The Beat Within partners with community organizations and individuals to bring resources to youth both inside and outside of detention. We are committed to being an effective bridge between youth who are locked up and the community that aims to support their progress towards a healthy, non-violent and productive life.

A few years ago, no one in New Orleans thought that country music would again thrive alongside jazz, zydeco and funk, but award winning band Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue have proven the naysayers wrong. Following-up a self-titled 2006 release, "Set Two" was released in May 2010 and has already received an award for Best Country/Folk Album by offBeat Magazine, an honor voted on by listeners all over the world. Having worked for years in barrooms and honky tonks playing over 150 shows a year, Gal Holiday is known for their honest and authentic live performances. They found that their show translated for other audiences and have found great success playing at festivals and for private events including weddings and children's shows through the nationwide non-profit, Young Audiences.
With a sound that conjures Patsy Cline, a Johnny Cash attitude and a reverence for Merle Haggard and Bob Wills, Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue pull from the best of Honky Tonk, Western Swing and Rockabilly classics (and a few originals) to create a show that is pure American roots.
