Gustav, Hanna, Ike and Josephine don't play any instruments, nor do any of them sing in a band. But as hurricanes and tropical storms, the foursome is shaking up the live music biz by forcing cancellations and postponements in the southeastern U.S.
Here is what we know so far:
Tonight's show at The Parish at House Of Blues, New Orleans, featuring Kate Voegele and Matt White has been canceled.
Tonight's Casa Samba Brazilian Independence Day celebration at Howlin Wolf in New Orleans has been postponed.

Tonight's Billy Joe Royal show at The Cypress Bayou Casino in Charenton, Louisiana, is canceled.
What's the difference between "postponed" and canceled?" Simply put, a postponement means organizers hope to reschedule the show for a later date, while "canceled" means just that - the show will not happen.
