COREY HENRY AND THE TREME FUNKTET AND TREME BRASS BAND ROCK ARMSTRONG PARK FOR WEEK THREE OF JAZZ IN THE PARK

An Evening of True Sixth Ward Music That's Free and Family-Friendly

New Orleans, September 17, 2013-Jazz in the Park returns for nine straight weeks this fall, running from September 5th to October 31st, with a stellar roster of New Orleans music that features The Soul Rebels, Rebirth Brass Band, Jon Cleary, and Shamarr Allen and The Underdawgs, to name a few.  Jazz in the Park has a new start time of 2PM, and the event runs until 8PM.  The Treme Nights after party happens at Kermit Ruffin's Treme Speakeasy from 8PM to 11PM, and Kermit Ruffins will lead a second line to his place every week after the close of the show.

This Thursday, September 19th, The Treme Brass Band takes the stage at 5PM.  Though the beloved band's regular shows at d.b.a. on Tuesdays, and Wednesday night residency at the Candlelight Lounge are well known, band leader and snare drummer, Benny Jones, points out:

"We reach a lot of people at those shows, and that's a big reason we like Jazz in the Park-all those people who come out."

Corey Henry and the Treme Funktet hit the stage at 6:30PM.  Corey is just off the road with Galactic, and very happy about Treme Funktet's newly established Thursday night residency at Vaughan's, their residency at the Maple Leaf for the month of October, and their upcoming show at Blue Nile this Saturday, September 21st.

During intermission, the Disco Amigos are scheduled to entertain the crowd and get them dancing from 6 to 6:15PM.

The Congo Square Arts and Crafts Village, which now runs from 2 to 4PM, is a great place to start the weekend a little early and grab lunch.  In addition to plentiful vendors offering original, handcrafted items for sale, Direct Select Seafood, Woody & Son, and Pat O'Brien's will be on hand.  The Yisrael Trio, a group of young musicians that provides music for the Arts and Crafts Village from noon until 3PM, will be at Armstrong Park every week of the fall 2013 season.

Second lines are once again a welcome and integral part of the Jazz in the Park experience, and each week a different social aid and pleasure club struts their stuff. The second lines continue with a start time of 4PM, and this week, the Sudan Social Aid and Pleasure Club and Da Truth Brass Band are at the park.  This initiative is possible thanks to the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, who along with the People United for Armstrong Park, have a vested interest in the preservation and continued growth of New Orleans culture. 

As in previous seasons, the Marketplace at Armstrong Park, in cooperation with the Institute of Community Development, opens at 3PM and is available for food and grocery purchases until 8PM.

Jazz in the Park is made possible by the support of the NOLA Brewing Company, which has been with the series from the very beginning.  The series is proud to be sponsored by Old New Orleans Rum, Fleurty Girl, Carver, Darden, Koretzky, Tessier, Finn, Blossman & Areaux, LLC, The American Music Research Foundation, the City of New Orleans, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic, New Orleans Ice Cream, Bissap Breeze, C&G Construction, Basin Street Foundation, and New Orleans South Africa Connection.  Media sponsors: OffBeat, WWOZ, WWL-TV, WGNO, BreakThru Media, and Nola LIVE.
