Free and open to the public, the second annual Oak Street Block Party welcomes a huge roster of funk legends for a daytime extravaganza on Wednesday, April 29. If you though the party stops between Jazz Fest weekends one and two, you thought wrong (this is NOLA we’re talking about). With 7 hours of music across two outdoor stages and the Maple Leaf, food and alcohol vendors, local artists and more, this is sure to be a daytime rager of epic proportions.
This stacked lineup features The Oak St. All-Stars (Oteil Burbride, Kofi Burbridge, Roosevelt Collier, Adam Deitch, Adam Smirnoff, Jesus Coomes, Ryan Zoidis, Maurice Brown, & Natalie Cressman), Leftover Salmon, The Nth Power, The Heard, Kung Fu, Eddie Roberts’ West Coast Sounds, Sonic Bloom & Hard Proof.
The event is a benefit for the Oak Street community, and WWOZ will be on site collecting donations.
