Charmaine Neville, the Preservation Brass, Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers, Jeremy Davenport, Doreen's Jazz, Cyril Neville's Swamp Funk and many others will gather at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the Mint for three days of music, food and fun. Daily admission is just $6.
The Kickoff Party and the Spirit of Satchmo Awards will take place on August 1. This is your chance to enjoy a night of music with Ellis Marsalis, Jr. with special guest Ashlin Parker. And you won't want to miss the annual Jazz Mass on Sunday, August 4. After the mass, be part of the "Satchmo Salute" second line parade from St. Augustine Catholic Church to the festival.
There was no one like Louis Armstrong and there's no place like New Orleans. Come celebrate them both this summer.
