The night began with an opening made by a spokesperson of The Howlin Wolf, who then introduced Mary Guibert. Mary thanked everyone for coming out and shared a piece of information that was unique to New Orleans in the making of the DVD, “Grace Around The World”. It was revealed that Jeff Buckley had performed at The Howlin Wolf in 1994, yet there was one song that was critical from this performance in the making of the DVD.
It was “Dream Brother”, for the video footage in New Orleans was the only time the song had been captured in its entirety. When this song was screened, everyone started applauding as they saw “The Howlin Wolf, New Orleans”, flash on the screen. At the end of every song, the audience would applaud as if they were actually seeing Jeff Buckley live in concert.
