On International Jazz Day (Thursday, April 30), Grammy winners Terence Blanchard and Latin percussionist Poncho Sanchez will host a jazz brunch at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Following the brunch, they'll perform a free 30-minute open-to-the-public concert on the steps of the NOMA starting at 10a. Then they'll lead a second line parade from the museum down Esplanade Avenue to the gates of Jazz Fest.
WWOZ will live broadcast both the concert and, as far as we can, the second line. Then we'll shift over to our live broadcast of Jazz Fest at 11a.
WWOZ is heading to Cajun Country!
We're excited to partner with KRVS Radio Acadie to bring you an evening of live music from Lafayette's Festival International. Tune in to hear Bas Clas, Grupo Fantasma, Roddie Romero & the Hub CIty All Stars, Vieux Farka Toure and more.
WWOZ's Boudin Man will join the KRVS broadcast team over in Lafayette on Thursday April 23 from 6 to 10pm.
The 32nd Annual French Quarter Festival presented by Chevron is April 9-12, 2015.
We'll be live broadcasting all performances from the Esplanade in the Shade stage during FQ Fest. Such a lineup!
