Get your tix early and save! Early Bird $8 price ends on Dec 13th. After Dec 13th, tickets will cost $10. Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes featuring Special Guest CR Gruver (of The New Orleans Suspects) on Keys! Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes rock the house all the time every time! This classically trained New Orleans-based band delivers a smorgasbord of musical genres every time they hit the stage. JSDN defy easy categorization, their irreverent funk is cut with rock riffs, a Gypsy/Klezmer flare, a Latin tinge courtesy of a hard hitting horn section, and a sense of humor. http://www.johnnysketch.com
Combining the street music of its native home of Russia, jug band instrumentation and nods to American pop, Debauche aims to create ramshackle singalongs in both Russian and English. Now based in New Orleans, band members Yegor Romantsov, Eve Kuffner, Jesse Stolzfus, Scott Potts and Vince Schmidt seem to have their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks with covers of songs like Depeche Mode's "Just Can't Get Enough." But the accordion, violin, makeshift percussion, polka beats and punky spirit found all over the group's original songs manage to evoke a certain amount of loose and ragged charm.
The huge oak trees along a two-mile strip of New Orleans' historic City Park are loaded with more than two million twinkling lights and ornaments to celebrate the season. A driving tour is offered each day, along with amusement rides, snacks and live entertainment. This fun-filled family event takes place from late November through early January each year.
