3RD ANNUAL NOLAFUNK SUMMER JAZZFEST
ANNOUNCES INITIAL LINEUP
For the 3rd year in a row, CEG Presents and Nolafunk - the New York-based event promoter that honors the musicians and spirit of New Orleans - will be bringing the Annual Nolafunk Summer Jazzfest to the South Street Seaport waterfront; a one-night mini-festival for the New Orleans faithful.
The initial lineup of Little Feat and Papa Grows Funk has been confirmed for August 22 at the Beekman Beer Garden, with special guests to be announced shortly. Located within the South Street Seaport, Beekman has an open-air tent for more than 800 people and a 200-ton sand beach for hundreds more, all with a backdrop of the East River, the Brooklyn skyline, and the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg bridges.
Nolafunk Summer Jazzfest aims to transport the soul of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and is the companion festival to the Nolafunk Mardi Gras Ball. Previous performers at Summer Jazzfest include Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Jon Cleary, High & Mighty Brass Band, Rebirth Brass Band, and Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Orchestra.
