Come out on Sunday, June 24 at the Westwego Farmer's Market to the Charmaine Neville Tribute and Benefit, to support Charmaine through her medical treatment. The benefit includes the likes of Dr. John, The Dixie Cups, Kermit Ruffins, Al "Carnival Time" Johnson and many, many more.
Tonight at 10 PM we celebrate the 19th anniversary of maybe the most daring yet maybe the most idiotic thing WWOZ has ever done: Letting the Jazz Lunatique get in front of the microphone and play what he calls music for all the crazies who come out at night.
The Creole Tomato Festival, taking place on June 9 and 10, is beloved by everyone for its quaint and quirky traditions, such as life size tomatoes strolling the grounds handing out tomato shaped fans, and the auctioning off of the first tomatoes of the season to local chefs.
We, at WWOZ, wish to add our expression of recognition to those honoring Ms. Phoebe Jacobs at this time of her passing. Her work on behalf of one of our most beloved native sons—Louis Armstrong—will always be deeply appreciated by those of us who feel blessed by his cultural legacy.
