5th Annual Nolafunk Jazzfest Series Kicks Off Tomorrow

April 21, 2016, NEW ORLEANS, LA – The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is unlike any other music festival. Beyond the perennially monstrous festival lineup, Jazz Fest (which officially ends at 7pm each day) is known for the torrent of after-shows and satellite events that it attracts to the Crescent City. Nolafunk has Jazz Fest patrons’ evening plans covered with a stacked after-party series featuring world-renowned bands, one-of-a-kinda tribute shows, and star-studded collaborations over the course of 10 days.

Under the Nolafunk moniker, CEG Presents honors the musical heroes and spirit of the Big Easy in the Big Apple year-round, producing concerts featuring many of New Orleans’ finest musicians, and putting together NOLA-centric lineups for our annual Nolafunk Mardi Gras Ball and Nolafunk Summer Jazzfest. CEG& Nolafunk have also been producing hot-ticket shows in New Orleans for nearly 10 years.

See below for ticketing and info for the entire 5th Annual Nolafunk Jazzfest Series, which kicks off tomorrow (April 22), as well as photo’s from last year’s series:
