WWOZ Live Event Broadcasts

Big Sam's Funky Nation

DATE
Sun, Apr 25, 2010 12:30am
Since 2001, Big Sam's Funky Nation has been searing its distinctly funky mark onto the New Orleans music scene. The band has toured the country and internationally, spreading its high-energy musical manifesto - and always bringing the party along the way. From the Big Easy to the Big Apple, San Francisco to Miami, UK, Paris (and countless points in between), BSFN has ignited the crowd with music and moves that make it too hot to sit still. The group just released its latest CD, King of the Party.

Join 'OZ as we broadcast Big Sam's Funky Nation live from The Maison on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans! (Note this is a late show on Saturday night.)

Jose Conde y Ola Fresca + Grupo Fantasma

DATE
Fri, Apr 23, 2010 10:30pm

Ola Fresca is a recurring wave of some of the best and most versatile musicians in the NY Latin scene and beyond, led by Jose Conde (pictured) on vocals and other gadgets.

Grupo Fantasma knits together the rural with the urban, and melds Anglo, Afro, and Latino influences into a hard-hitting blend that will keep you dancing all night. Their last CD, the Grammy-nominated "Sonidos Gold" (2008), further trademarks the ensemble’s innovative sound. Their new album, El Existential, will be released on May 11.

Join WWOZ as we broadcast both these Latin groups live from The Maison on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans!

Betty Harris & Marc Stone's All-Star Soul Band (Smoke-Free Live Broadcast)

DATE
Thu, Apr 15, 2010 8:30pm

Lets Be Totally Clear is sponsoring a live broadcast from the Old Point Bar in Algiers with legendary soul singer Betty Harris & Marc Stone's All-Star Soul Band featuring Leroy Jones, Rick Trolsen and Loren Pickford! This rare performance will be smoke-free, thanks to an agreement between the venue and the sponsor, giving the audience, musicians, and club staff a breath of fresh air while they listen to Betty's iconic soul voice and the band's irresistible grooves.

Betty rarely returns to New Orleans, where she cut many classic sides in the 1960s with Allen Toussaint and the Meters while touring extensively as a star alongside Otis Redding, James Brown and Sam Cooke. Don't miss the chance to hear one of the great voices of soul with a 10-piece band in an intimate club setting. Tickets available at www.marcstonemusic.com.

Tune in at 8:30 p.m. to catch this very special show on WWOZ 90.7 FM or online at WWOZ.org.
