Superfly Productions is proud to announce the 2010 Superfly during Jazzfest concert series. Series events will take place April 23-25 and April 30-May 2 at several signature New Orleans venues, including the recently renovated Mahalia Jackson Theatre and the Riverboat Creole Queen, among many others. Confirmed shows are listed below. As usual, the festival's 14th annual installment will present top national talent alongside some of the best acts from New Orleans' infinitely rich music scene.

Superfly During Jazzfest will include Gov't Mule and Rodrigo Y Gabriela at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. The theatre re-opened in January 2009 and was the first to do so after Hurricane Katrina. Joining Gov't Mule will be 7 walkers featuring Bill Kreutzmann & Papa Mali. The shows at the Riverboat will feature Galactic, Greyboy Allstars, Les Claypool and North Mississippi Allstars. Kirk Joseph's 504 Brass Band have been enlisted to join each of the Superfly shows aboard the legendary Riverboat Creole Queen.

Conceived in 1997, the Superfly during Jazzfest Concert Series eventually attracted thousands of fans from all over the country, and became the foundation for the iconic Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The popular series has presented live music fans with creative entertainment options throughout the past 13 festival seasons, and will continue to offer memorable events in the company's birthplace for years to come. "New Orleans is still so important to us," says Superfly's Rick Farman. "We feel spiritually connected to New Orleans and we always look forward to putting on these shows every year."
