ALL SHOWS GO ON SALE FRIDAY FEBRUARY 17 AT NOON EST

7 Walkers
The first annual Nolafunk Jazzfest Series, produced by Creative Entertainment Group (CEG), will take place April 27 – May 5, 2012, during the evenings of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

The inaugural event will launch at Republic on Friday, April 27 with a lineup that pulls out all the stops. Anders Osborne will be joined by the Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann, Little Feat's Paul Barrere & Fred Tackett, and Billy Iuso in a one-time-only repeat of their legendary performance during the second weekend of last year's Jazz Fest. Marco Benevento will open and newer Nolafunk friends ALO will close out the evening.

The Nolafunk Jazzfest Series also includes an eagerly-awaited rare appearance from Leftover Salmon; a Jazzfest return of Latin rock titans Los Lobos; a rare late-night appearance featuring very recent Grammy Award winners Rebirth Brass Band; plus Anders Osborne & special guests along with annual fan-favorite Tab Benoit's "Swampland Jam"; and much more.

All shows in the initial lineup will take place at Republic, apart from one show at the Howlin’ Wolf on April 28 with Leftover Salmon, 7 Walkers, and Anders Osborne.
