Funky Meters at Tipitina's
Jazz Fest 2005 by Chris Goodyear
Superfly Productions is proud to announce the 2006 "Superfly during Jazzfest" concert series. Series events will take place from Friday, April 28 through Saturday, May 6 at several New Orleans venues, including the Contemporary Arts Center (site of the earliest Superfly shows), The Republic, Riverboat Cajun Queen, DBA, and the Maple Leaf Bar. Confirmed shows are listed below, with additional shows to be announced soon. As usual, the festival's 10th annual installment will present top national talent alongside some of the best acts from New Orleans' rich music scene.

Conceived in 1997, the Superfly during Jazzfest Concert Series eventually attracted thousands of fans from all over the country, and became the foundation for such iconic national events as the Bonnaroo and Vegoose music festivals. The popular series has presented live music fans with creative entertainment options throughout the past nine festival seasons, and will continue to offer memorable events despite the hurricane damage endured by many of its usual venues. "It has been particularly difficult to plan events in New Orleans this year," says series co-founder Rick Farman, "but we feel strong ties to the community where we started up, and we are excited to celebrate our 10th anniversary year there." Superfly acknowledges its presenting sponsor, StubHub, for making the 2006 series possible and for providing a marketplace for fans to buy and sell tickets for all Superfly events.

Superfly During Jazzfest 2006 will include two special performances at the renovated Contemporary Arts Center: A show on Friday, May 5, with Gov't Mule, Galactic, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and one on Saturday, May 6, presenting the Meters (original lineup) and Robert Randolph & the Family Band. As usual, the festival will be the birthplace of a great musical alliance: the 2006 series will include a performance on April 28 by "Garage a Medeski," featuring members of Garage a Trois (Stanton Moore, Mike Dillon and Skerik) with special guest John Medeski. Superfly is also in the process of creating a new charity event, the Frenchmen Street Fest. The all-day concert will take place on Thursday, May 4 in Washington Square Park in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. The lineup and beneficiaries will be announced soon.

About the Superfly During Jazzfest Series:
The Superfly during Jazzfest concert series began in 1997 to fulfill an intense demand for nighttime music events during the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Since then, the event has become a premier destination for music fans from all over the country. Spanning 10 days and several venues, the Superfly series attracts rabid fans who appreciate quality live music from an adventurous range of styles and traditions.

Thanks Superfly for the great concerts year in and year out.

But kick StubHub to the curb. When they say they want to make sure you can get good seats at "fair market value" that means they are making $$ by being the middle man as someone scalps you a ticket. They are nothing but a ticket scalping middle man.

This year is going to be truely special. Hope you can make it! Happy Festivus to the rest of us!!!

Everything looks sweet so far, but Umphrey's playing Jazzfest? Might as well book them for Telluride too. Just doesn't make any sense.

Radiators are only $22 at GAMH in SF -- 2 nights mid-April to tune-up. Wish I could get to NOLA in May for the craziness, but feel lucky to have seen GaT, Super Heavy Organ, The Meters, Galactic, PapaGrowsFunk, Les, Dead Kenny G's, HABMX, Funkadelic, and Skerik over the past several months in SF.

This is a about stubhub not jazzfest but i just checked out their site and they've got some Keller Williams tickets for $80-159.00 I'm not sure but I don't think that's fair market price. I'm just sayin.

Be careful when dealing with StubHub. They sold two very expensive, invalid tickets to me. Read more at
