This is not your average gala!

This benefit for WWOZ will take place on Thursday September 2 at Dickie Brennan & Company's Tableau - located on Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter. This is not your average gala! It's a one-of-a-kind indoor festival to support this wonderfully unique radio station we all love! We'll have music on three stages around Tableau with food and drink flowing, head over to Le Petit Theater for the mainstage show, and then back into Tableau for an 'OZ DJ set and dessert bar. Don your festival attire and come celebrate the fall festival season with WWOZ and your fellow 'OZillians!! Mark your calendars! Lineup and ticket information to come!

Join us in your favorite festival attire to celebrate WWOZ (leave your tuxes and your gowns at home)! The Groove Gala will be in full swing from 6:30-10:30pm on Thursday September 2, 2021.

  • Catch music at three Groove Gala Fest Stages spread over two floors of Tableau and in the Courtyard
  • Revel in fine flavors of gourmet food provided by Dickie Brennan & Company's Tableau restaurant
  • Enjoy beverages from four open bars
  • It's a festival, so of course, we'll have WWOZ Mango Freeze
  • All of this before heading into Le Petit Theatre for the Main Stage Showcase
  • Wrap up the night with dessert and dancing to WWOZ DJ Neil Pellegrin
