May 22 @ 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Trad jazz clarinetist Greg Agid got his New Orleans start at the Louis Armstrong Jazz Camp, being mentored by luminaries like Alvin Batiste and Kidd Jordan. Infusing the rhythms and sounds of the musicians that have gone before him with his personal experiences and tastes, Agid sees himself as part of the great musical continuum that is New Orleans. His mission is to move the sound to its logical next step while delighting audiences throughout the city with his sprightly, effervescent clarinet performances. He takes the stage with his quartet every Tuesday at Maison on Frenchmen, plus appearing with Delfeayo Marsalis’s Uptown Jazz Orchestra at Snug Harbor on Wednesdays. He’s also a frequent guest at the Spotted Cat and Mimi’s in the Marigny.

The New Orleans Jazz Vipers
May 23 @ 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

In 2009, the original New Orleans Jazz Vipers morphed into two new bands, Joe Braun’s The New Orleans Jazz Vipers and the New Orleans Cottonmouth Kings featuring six former Jazz Vipers. You can hear both bands playing regularly on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans, and both have released new CDs available at their websites.

The original New Orleans Jazz Vipers were a popular and active band in New Orleans for many years, pioneers of the Frenchmen Street scene, with a twice-weekly residency at the Spotted Cat 2003 to 2009. Noteable festival appearances included the Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Lincoln Center Midsummer Night Swing and the Monterey Jazz Festival (in September 2005). Part of the unique sound of the Jazz Vipers came from the fact that they rarely used any amplification. The sound of the band was at the same time retro, full of energy and unpretentious, with both up-tempo dance numbers and well-chosen ballads; it has been aptly described as neo-trad-jazz. The band received many awards in Louisiana including the Gambit’s “Big Easy” award in 2005 for “Best Traditional Jazz Band,” and Offbeat Magazine’s “Best of the Beat” award in 2004 for “Best Traditional Jazz Album” (for the album “Live on Frenchmen Street”). In 2001 and 2003 they won the “Best of the Beat” award for “Best Emerging Traditional Jazz Band.”

The Good For Nothin’ Band
Jun 14 @ 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM

The Good For Nothin’ Band is to the New Orleans music scene what Al Capone was to the Chicago Mafia, ” The Enforcer of Wow “ the hot bang club, original, defying cultures, tastes, genres, and decor, sacrilege in all its perfection, a feast for the soul of wayfaring pilgrims searching for the Un-Holy Grail of seedy salvation. This pack of rouge delinquents will decapitate your senses with songs and music crafted from utter mayhem and sheer debauchery. The lucky pilgrim who ventures into the room with these deplorable angels with leave molecularly scathed, never to be integrated into normalcy again, forever changed to roam the earth in the fog of delightful Whiggery. When in Nola, seek out these degenerate scallawags and drink in the groove shadows of this notorious city of wonder as they bombard you with their infamous musical tales of the city of dreams. The Good For Nothin Band , coming to your local sleaze palace and insane asylum.
