Shoutout: Chuck and Janis Rogers of Buffa's

This month we are shouting out a huge thanks to Buffa's, the restaurant and venue at Esplanade and Burgundy, for their sponsorship of WWOZ.
 
The Rogers family, owners of Buffa's, have been WWOZ listeners and supporters since the 1990s. Before they moved to New Orleans, they trekked down from Wisconsin to volunteer at WWOZ's Piano Night every year. Once they arrived in town in 2001 Chuck and Janis Rogers dove into the thick of it helping to produce the WWOZ membership drives and mail out the membership premiums.
 
When the family bought Buffa's Bar in 2010, their goal to make it into a vibrant music venue where all musicians are welcome. The piano and drum set permanently on stage are available to musicians - aspiring and established. The Rogers are working to create true joint, inspired by Donna's, the venue that Mr. Charlie used to run over on Dumaine and Rampart.
 
BuffasBackroom at Buffa's has had a long standing Jazz Brunch with Some Like it Hott, and now the Rogers have expanded the weekly lineup to include regular live music five nights a week. Sixteen of these musicians banded together and donated original tracks to "Live from the Back Room: Volume I" to help the Rogers raise money for the sound system in the Back Room.
Now the Rogers are offering WWOZ members a discount. Flash your membership card for 10% off a meal in the Back Room at Buffas!
