Today in NOLA: 6.09.16


Tonight in NOLA, check out two great music series or go hear a country legend. Plus, Chris Robinson is at Tip’s and Kirk Joseph is in Central City. On this day in 1867, Benjamin Flanders was appointed military governor of Louisiana. Now, for more on today.

 

Jazz in the Park (Armstrong Park, 5p.m.)

Five years running, this free, outdoor series at the birthplace of jazz has built up quie a following. There are the typical array of food vendors and artists. Plus, the evenings open with second lines and marching bands. Tonight, Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen and Mainline are on the stages.

 

Ogden After Hours (Ogden Museum, 5:30p.m.)

This week, the Ogden Museum’s evening music series features the Asylum Chorus, an allstar collection of locals vocalists. Plus, an activity table to occupy kids and Miss Linda’s (the Yakamein Lady) Soul Food to cater to your dinnertime cravings. Admission $12.50

 

Travis Tritt (Civic, 9p.m.)

Travis Tritt has been cranking out hit after hit since 1989. You probably know all the words to his hits like "Help Me Hold On," "Anymore," "Can I Trust You with My Heart," "Foolish Pride", and "Best of Intentions." Tonight singalong as Tritt delivers gems from his platinum studded collection.

 

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood (Tip’s, 8p.m.)

You know Robinson from his work with the Black Crowes. In 2011, he launched this sideproject. Together with guitarist Neal Casal, keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Jeff Hill, and drummer Tony Leone, the Brotherhood has put out three solid albums.

 

Corey Henry (Vaughan’s, 10p.m.)

Treme trombonist Henry has some pretty impressive roots. His grandfather is drummer Chester Jones, and his uncle, snare drummer Benny Jones, leads the Treme Brass Band. And, it shows. Henry is quickly ascending to the local funk throne. His latest album “Lapeitah” is worth a trip to the merch table.

 

Chapter Soul (Verret’s Lounge, 9p.m.)

This side project from sousaphonist Kirk Joseph of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and sax master Calvin Johnson aims to take classic tunes and re-arrange them with heavy doses of funk. Kashonda Bailey joins them on keys, and Raymond Weber Jr. is on drums. Check out the debut album later this year.
