Jazz in the Park closes with two week blowout

This afternoon (6/6) and next Thursday (6/13) are the last two concerts in Armstrong Park for the spring season. The Brass-A-Holics headline today and Kermit Ruffins and the BBQ Swingers close the event out on June 13, 2013.

In keeping with the concert series’ high standards, the opening act today, the Joe Krown Trio with Walter “Wolfman” Washington and Russell Batiste could easily be the headliner. Next week, Mike “Soulman” Baptiste opens for Ruffins.

The Marketplace at Armstrong Park, an open-air farmers and arts market produced by The Institute of Community Development, opens to the public at 3PM.

Fresh and prepared foods, as well as locally made crafts, are available for purchase, with the additional convenience of a grocery valet so patrons may shop and enjoy the music at the same time. This grocery valet service is courtesy of the Marketplace at Armstrong Park. The gastronomic delights of some of New Orleans’ best food trucks round out the menu options.
