The Spirit of Louis Armstrong Shines Bright
on Frenchmen Street for the August 5th Satchmo Club Strut

It's time again for jazz fans to break out their Struttin' shoes and go on down to Frenchmen Street for one of the best events of the year, the SATCHMO CLUB STRUT! It’s the perfect chance to experience the sights and sounds of New Orleans’ unique music scene and it’s all there for the taking on Friday, August 5, when the New Orleans Jazz Celebration presents the 11th annual Satchmo Club Strut in the historic Faubourg Marigny from 6 pm until 2 am.

Plus, New Orleans’ own Allen Toussaint & Jazzivity, Davell Crawford, Donald Harrison Jr. and the Treme Brass Band will be featured on the Red Stripe Stage in Jane Alley, a new outdoor venue in at 619 Frenchmen.

Seventeen cool venues will host the hottest jazz in town, including Maison, Snug Harbor, Blue Nile, Three Muses, d.b.a., Vaso, Checkpoint Charlie’s, Bicycle Michael’s, to name a few. From Marigny Brasserie to Mojitos, Strutters can dance, drink and dine the night away while supporting the New Orleans Jazz Celebration, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving, promoting and perpetuating jazz to audiences of all ages.
