We’re just a few weeks away from Jazz Fest and from April 26th through May 5th, Nolafunk will present a full slate of shows as part of the 2nd Annual Jazzfest Series. Page McConnell and the Meter Men, the Everyone Orchestra, The Black Angels and Leftover Salmon are just a few of the acts scheduled to play the Republic and The Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans under the Nolafunk banner. It all starts on April 26th with the 2nd Annual Nolafunk Jazzfest Series Kick-Off Party.
George Porter Jr., John Gros (Papa Grows Funk), Craig Klein & Mark Mullins of Bonerama, Brian Stoltz (Funky Meters), and Terrence Houston (Runnin’ Pardners) will perform as Tryptophunk on April 26th at Republic for the Kick-Off Party. As if that isn’t enough, New Orleans natives The Soul Rebels and the incomparable Marco Benevento will open. Tickets are available through TicketWeb.
