“Since I started coming to Jazz Fest in 1999, the ‘Daze Between’ Jazz Fest weekends have always been some of my favorite days to be in New Orleans,” says Paul Levine of Purple Hat Productions. “Together with my partners L4LM and GMP Live we have been throwing special late-night shows on these days for many years. It’s our way of giving back to the city and culture that has inspired us all in our lives and careers. Working with Rex Foundation to help raise funds for multiple New Orleans charities is the culmination of these efforts and really the cherry on top.”

“Daze Between New Orleans is starting to become an annual tradition,” says Live for Live Music founder Kunj Shah. “It’s a remarkable event anchored by Jazz Fest, colored with incredible music and delicious food, in a beautiful venue. New Orleans is ingrained in the fabric of everything we do at Live For Live Music, and to be able to put on an event that gives back to this city that has given the world so much culture is an honor.”

“We are so excited to return for another year of Daze Between New Orleans,” adds Gideon Plotnicki of GMP Live. “This event holds a truly special place in our hearts, and we cannot wait to return for another year of excellent music, awesome craft beer, and delicious local food at the beautiful Faubourg Brewery campus.”
