For the thirteenth consecutive year, music and merriment are the order of the day as Ashé Cultural Arts Center lights up the boulevard with musicians, actors, merchants, and the community, creating an astonishing holiday family festival and marketplace in Central City New Orleans. Located at 1712/24 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in New Orleans, the festival brings together a hefty mix of jazz, hip-hop, r&b, gospel, folk, reggae, sprinkled with spoken word and incredible dancers.
Repeats every week until Sun Dec 30 2012 except Sun Dec 23 2012.
Catch the Yat Pack on Sundays from 8:30-midnight at The Max in Metairie near the Clearview exit. The Yat Pack is a New Orleans-based band that brings back the Swing Era with a Vegas flair - the classic Big Band sounds of Sinatra & Bobby Darin to contemporary artists like Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr.
With the holiday season upon us, it is high time that we announce this year’s annual Chinquapin Records Holiday Social. Yes, we’re doing it again, but this time around we are stepping it up a notch. This year’s event will be a two-nighter, the weekend of December 7th - 8th, and is sure to feature plenty of rock and roll raucousness, complete with a bit of yuletide flair. The weekend will kick off on Friday night at Saturn Bar with Native America and Babes, joined by touring acts Boyfrndz (Austin, TX) and Proud Father (Jacksonville, FL). The party continues Uptown on Saturday night at Prytania Bar with Donovan Wolfington, New Lands, and Hello Chief (Beaumont, TX). Both nights start at 9 PM, are 18+, and will be for $6, with one dollar from each ticket sale going to Apex Youth Center of New Orleans. So, this December, come out in your finest ugly sweaters and other holiday fashions and join us for not one, but two nights of wintertime musical celebration!
