2012 French Quarter Festival Musician Sponsorship Program is a Success
Satchmo SummerFest Musician Sponsorship Program Offers Additional Support

NEW ORLEANS, LA (June 11, 2012) - French Quarter Festivals, Inc. is proud to announce that the new 2012 French Quarter Festival Musician Sponsorship Program was a great success. Thanks to the generous support and donations of festival fans, New Orleans businesses, and local restaurants, the Musician Sponsorship Program exceeded its original goal and raised over $100,000 in funding for festival musicians as well as artist parking all four days of festival. French Quarter Festivals, Inc. continues the Musician Sponsorship Program for the 2012 Satchmo SummerFest, August 3-5, 2012.

Musician Sponsorship
FQFI is currently seeking musician sponsors for the 12th annual Satchmo SummerFest, the premier American Jazz Festival dedicated to the life, legacy, and music of Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. Musician Sponsorship allows fans, businesses, and restaurants to support this beloved music festival. Sponsorship levels begin at $750 (Struttin' with Some Barbecue sponsor) or as much as $20,000 at the "Pops" Level. All donations will help support Satchmo SummerFest musicians. Sponsorships of all sizes are welcomed and will be acknowledged.

All events produced by French Quarter Festivals, Inc. are FREE and open to the public. FQFI strives to keep Satchmo SummerFest a high quality event that celebrates Louis Armstrong and the best of New Orleans culture. The organization is committed to keeping the event accessible to everyone and contributing to the economic well-being of the French Quarter, the City of New Orleans, and the State of Louisiana.

The musician sponsorship program facilitates the relationship between artists and sponsors and eliminates the musician's responsibility in securing a sponsor, freeing them to focus on their performance. Because French Quarter Festivals, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, sponsorships are tax deductible - another great benefit for supporters.

With the launch of this program, businesses are once again invited to truly participate in this annual community celebration, making a major impact, and enjoying the benefits of sponsorship. Satchmo SummerFest is not just a fun, high quality event. The festival annually generates over $4 million in economic impact with over $300,000 in direct tax revenue going to the city and the state as a direct result of the festival. Satchmo SummerFest also attracts over 26,000 people to the French Quarter each year.

Satchmo SummerFest
Satchmo SummerFest began in 2001 to celebrate the centennial birthday of Louis Armstrong. Taking place near his birthday, August 4th, Satchmo Summerfest offers three days of fascinating seminars about the history and influence of jazz music in New Orleans and discussions about the life and talent of Louis Armstrong, two days of music from some of New Orleans' finest traditional jazz and brass bands, and authentic local cuisine from the area's finest restaurants that create "Red Bean Alley."

Satchmo SummerFest also hosts a variety of special events and activities including: Sunday morning Jazz Mass at the historic St. Augustine Church in Treme; a traditional second line parade; traditional jazz dance lessons; a children's activity area; and a Trumpet Tribute to close the festival.
