On Thursday, September 3rd, WWOZ will host our annual GROOVE GALA, and you are cordially invited! This is not your average gala!
Wear your favorite festival attire as we unite and gather virtually so everyone around the world can safely celebrate WWOZ’s incredible 40 years of broadcasting and Guarding the Groove.
Our amazing talent lineup includes Irma Thomas, Tank and the Bangas, John Boutte, Samantha Fish, Kermit Ruffins, Amanda Shaw with Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. and Tuba Skinny!
In past years, our sold-out gala was held in the heart of the French Quarter at the historic Le Petit Theatre and Tableau Restaurant, with room for only 350 Guardians of the Groove.
This year we are presented with a unique opportunity to open the doors to a worldwide virtual audience so there’s room for everyone to groove with us! Join us on Thursday, September 3rd beginning at 7pm central where the Groove Gala will be streaming via WWOZ’s Facebook page, our YouTube, wwoz.org and broadcasting on 90.7FM.
So save the date, tell your friends, get ready to wave your Second Line handkerchief in the air and groove at home with us!
Yours in the groove,
Beth Arroyo Utterback
