Jan Ramsey started OffBeat magazine and its associated entities two decades ago as an effort to improve and expand local music, culture and business. Known for her scathing Mojo Mouth essays, Ramsey has been a music activist since the early 1980s. She loves local culture and lives down the street from the H&R Bar, which was blown away by Katrina, to prove it. She is a native New Orleanian and a former good Catholic girl.
