Upcoming Shows

We'll be coming to you live from the Gospel Tent at Jazz Fest on Sunday, May 5! This is the first time we'll be broadcasting live from the Gospel Tent since 2004. 

Tune in to hear sets from the Electrifying Crownseekers, the Tribute to Raymond Myles featuring The RAMS, and the incomparable Gospel Soul of Irma Thomas. Plus, hear the Tribute to Alvin Batiste with Herman Jackson and Friends, Alexey Marti & Urban Minds, and John Boutte from the WWOZ Jazz Tent, as well as Tribu Buharu from the Jazz & Heritage Stage.

We've also got lots of interviews in store for Sunday, including one with Craig Adams, who will be performing in the Gospel Tent with both the Gospel Soul Children and as part of the Raymond Myles tribute.
