Rich Collins

Festival season is back and better than ever. This month New Orleans Magazine profiles musician, writer and performer Rich Collins in our Persona profile. You may know Rich from his alias, “Mover Rich,” from the popular Disney children’s program “The Imagination Movers,” or from his journalistic work with Biz New Orleans, but if you haven’t seen him perform solo, you will want to check out his performance at this year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Catch up on Collins’ musical past, present and where he’s moving next, in this issue. Plus, we have an exclusive online lagniappe playlist featuring selections from Collins’ latest work, as well as some of his favorite artists. 

On Assignment

New Orleans Magazine Editor Ashley McLellan debuted her blog “On Assignment” this February, in which she details the who, what and where things are happening across the city. From sno-balls to king cakes, podcasts to TV shows, restaurants and reviews, we’ve got the skinny on what we’re getting into each week. Let us know if there’s something going on that you think we should check out as well!
