Voodoo Dead


CEG Presents & Nolafunk are proud to present their 7thAnnual Nolafunk Series During Jazz Fest, which takes place during the evenings and weekends of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, from April 27 – May 6, 2018. As always, the series features a diverse collection of special performances from musicians inside and out of the New Orleans cultural sphere; however they all embrace the spirit and essence of the city. The series has preserved its tradition of unique lineup pairings, combining older and younger musicians, as well as national acts with local legends.

The first announcement of the series is two nights of Voodoo Dead, for the fourth year in a row, but for the very first time during the first weekend of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Voodoo Deadfeatures Steve Kimock (The Other Ones), Jeff Chimenti (Dead & Co.), Jackie Greene (Phil & Friends, The Black Crowes), George Porter Jr. (The Meters), and JM Kimock (Mike Gordon Band), with special guests to be announced.

Voodoo Dead’s performances, which up until last year were exclusively in New Orleans, have been among the most sought-after late-nights during Jazz Fest each year. The band’s shows are  an amalgamation of Grateful Dead music and New Orleans music and everything in between. The band ventured out of New Orleans for the first time last Winter with a sold out run of shows in New York, Washington, DC, and Philadelphia. They will perform on Jam Cruise 2018 for the first time.

Under the Nolafunk moniker, Manhattan-based CEG honors the musical heroes and spirit of New Orleans in New York City year round, producing concerts in the Big Apple featuring many of the Big Easy’s finest musicians, such as Rebirth Brass Band, Anders Osborne, Kermit Ruffins, Dr. John & the Nite Trippers and many more. In addition, CEG amasses all-star Nola-centric lineups for both the annual Nolafunk Mardi Gras Ball and the annual Nolafunk Summer Jazz Fest. CEG & Nolafunk have had a long history producing shows in New Orleans since 2007.

There will be a limited discounted pre-sale for Nolafunk subscribers only beginning Wednesday January 10 at 11am CST / 12pm EST. Fans can sign up for the Nolafunk email list at www.nolafunk.com/nola for exclusive access to the pre-sale. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 12th at 11am CST / 12pm EST.
