WHY: Now in its sixth year, The Historic New Orleans Collection's Concerts in the Courtyard offers a fun, casual way to kick off the weekend with live outdoor performances by Louisiana musicians. The fall series opens Friday, Sept. 20, with a performance by Brass-A-Holics and cocktails provided by Criollo Restaurant and Old New Orleans Rum.  

The Brass-A-Holics' signature "Go-Go Brass Funk" was developed by trombonist Winston Turner by merging New Orleans's brass sound with Washington D.C.'s "go-go" groove-a subgenre of funk popularized by Chuck Brown-and topping it off with keys and strings. The band consists of eight members: Winston Turner (trombone), Tannon Williams (trumpet), Matt Clark (guitar), Jason "Slick" Slack (tuba), Keiko Komaki (keys), Robin Clabby (sax), Regie Nicholas (drums) and Dwayne Sherman Muhammad (percussion).

For the September concert, Hotel Monteleone's Criollo Restaurant and Old New Orleans Rum will partner to provide the Criollo Cocktail as the specialty cocktail. Using Louisiana and the Gulf South's abundant fresh, home grown products, Criollo Restaurant's ingredient-driven seasonal menu is designed to offer creative dishes inspired by culinary traditions and today's contemporary tastes. The Criollo Cocktail combines Old New Orleans Cajun Spiced Rum and club soda poured over a muddled blend of agave nectar, fresh lemon and fresh mint leaves.

Old New Orleans Rum was born in the back streets of New Orleans's 9th Ward. This stepchild of the spirits world was conceived by a band of artists and musicians better known for consumption than fabrication. James Michalopoulos, a celebrated New Orleans-based artist, is the founder of Celebration Distillation.

Admission to each show in the fall series is $10, free for THNOC members, and includes three complimentary beverages. All shows are held at 533 Royal St., and The Collection's current exhibition and gift shop are open for extended hours during the concerts. For more information, call (504) 523-4662 or visit www.hnoc.org.

Admission to Concerts in the Courtyard is $10 for the public, free for members of The Collection, and includes three complimentary cocktails. Memberships begin at $35 and are valid for one year. Guests must be 21 or older to enter. Capacity is limited and the event is designed for a standing audience. Outside chairs, food and beverages are not permitted on the premises. For more information, call (504) 523-4662 or visit www.hnoc.org.
