NOLAFunk Drops Lineup


Jazz Fest is such large festival that the annual gathering inspires satellite tests around town. Today, the 5th Annual Nolafunk Jazzfest Series rolled out a killer lineup of acts between April 23rd and May 1st. 

 

Names including George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, the London Souls, and Eric Krasno are all slated to perform during the series. This year, there will be lots of honoring the greats. The Dead, Little Feat, and NOLA’s own Allen Toussaint are due for tributes from renowned musicians.
