The Wild Magnolias Ft Bo Dollis Play Jazz in the Park

People United for Armstrong Park's free Jazz in the Park concert series continues its run this Thursday, May 24, from 5-8pm with The Wild Magnolias ft Bo Dollis, To Be Continued Brass Band and DJ Quickie Mart.  The event kicks off with a second line by the New School Brass Band that starts at and returns to the park.  As always, admission to the event, which also features food and crafts from local vendors and family-oriented activities such as face-painting and a space walk, is entirely free.   

Created as a safe, family-friendly cultural experience for residents and tourists alike, in its inaugural run Jazz in the Park has truly brought the music and life back to its rightful home in Armstrong Park.  New Orleans greats The Meters Experience, Russell and David Baptiste, Glen David and James Andrews, Donald Harrison, Michael Baptiste, Kermit Ruffins, and Allen Toussaint have already graced the stage under the historic Municipal Auditorium.  Sponsored by Nola Brewery and NOSACONN, Jazz in the Park has already proven an overwhelming success, attracting crowds that top 3000 people per week.  This is particularly impressive considering the series is produced by an entirely grassroots, volunteer-based community organization, with all proceeds from the series benefit the park.

People United for Armstrong Park's primary work is coordinating and collaborating with individuals and institutions to make the park a nurturing environment for the arts and a premier hub of the city's cultural economy.  Like so much re-building, it's been a long time coming, but on Thursday nights it feels like we're already there.  For further information please contact cpatti@pufap.org or call 617.504.9300.
