The History of the Creole Wild West "as told by themselves," is only part of an evening that will feature a performance by the oldest Mardi Gras Indian tribe, followed by a panel discussion with members that will be moderated by Dr. Bruce Raeburn of the Hogan Jazz Archive at Tulane University. The performance and discussion will be held 8:00 p.m
It takes an army of volunteers, staff and experts to produce the WWOZ broadcast, man the hospitality tent, produce Piano Night and create our live internet coverage. There are many to thank and though we’ve done our best, we’re sure we’ve missed some of the valuable contributors to our successful Jazz Fest 2008.
With all the work and attention to the Jazz Fest, WWOZ’s big fundraiser, Piano Night, sometimes fades away too quickly. We were at the House of Blues for the whole evening last Monday, and we even got backstage to shoot some video with some of the production team and the musicians.
