A new three day festival for the Daze Between was announced yesterday. The inaugural NOLA Crawfish Festival presented by Chris “Shaggy” Davis, Live For Live Music, and NOLA Brewery. It’s going to be the Monday - Wednesday between Jazz Fest weekends and will feature all NOLA based musicians, 5,000lbs of Crawfish, and NOLA beer at the NOLA Brewery Tap Room on April 25 - 27th.
The full roster of artists includes George Porter, Jr., Jon Cleary, Nigel Hall, John “Papa” Gros, Billy Iuso & The Restless Natives, Papa Mali, Eric Lindell, June Yamagishi, Raymond Weber, Tony Hall, Derwin “Big D” Perkins, Terrence Higgins, Brian Stoltz, Eric Vogel, Dave Malone, Johnny Sansone, Mike Zito & The Wheel, Colin Lake, Russ Broussard, and special guest Anders Osborne. A portion of all ticket proceeds will go to The Brett Thomas Doussan Foundation, a local nonprofit whose mission is to raise mental health awareness through advocacy, education, and music. Check out the full listings on the grids!
Welcome back to Jazzfestgrids.com, the best site to plan out your jazz fest nights to see all the amazing musicians that New Orleans has to offer. I thought starting the grids the same day the Jazz Fest Official Announcement hits would be cool.
I’m pleased to let everyone know that we have started populating the grids, which means Jazz Fest 2016 is just around the corner!
We will be adding shows to the grids once they have been confirmed. We will do our best, but we all know that no matter how many times we check there will be many changes so don't get upset if you don't see something up there, if it is listed wrong, if it conflicts with something else that's listed on another site - because it's all subject to change at a moment's notice. If you see something that needs to be revised or should be added, shoot me an email using the link to the left to papagrowsnyc at gmail dot com.

Bart (McGregor), who I have been working with on this site the last several years, has decided to step down this year (since we both volunteer our time this is completely understandable). I want to extend a hearty thank you to him for the many hours he worked on the grids. Please welcome Dave (Haber), who will be assisting on the grids this year.
Hoping everyone has a great Fest this year!
