Tipitina's Foundation

Tipitina’s Foundation supports Louisiana and New Orleans' irreplaceable music community and preserves the state’s unique musical cultures.

Galactic

It's incredible that GALACTIC has never made a carnival album yet, but now it’s here.

Johnny Sketch And The Dirty Notes

Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes has attracted plenty of attention over the past year as one of the best up and coming FUNK/ROCK bands out of New Orleans.

The Nth Power

Proving that soul music can be exponentially greater than the sum of its parts, The Nth Power will inspire you to dance, groove, make love or just stand there with goose bumps.

Honey Island Swamp Band

Great music begins with great songs, and great songs are what the Honey Island Swamp Band is all about.
