Fifth Annual Jamie’s Big Ass Party set for 3/26

Sometimes an idea is so good there’s just no stopping it. When New Orleans musician and chef Jamie Galloway (pictured below) passed away on February 23, 2013 of a medical problem that was most likely treatable, Dave Jordan, his friend and musical partner of many years, decided he had to do something to keep other musicians from falling through the health care safety net.

Thus, Jamie’s Big Ass Party was born. Tickets are available here. Created to honor the legacy of Galloway, the event, which is now in it’s fifth year, is a benefit for the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic and a great block party. It takes place Sunday afternoon in the 8300 block of Oak Street and at the Maple Leaf Bar.

The Big Ass Party is also a massive crawfish boil party with some of New Orleans’ best musicians playing inside and outside the saloon. Expect over 2,000 pounds of mudbugs and numerous musical jams.

Jordan’s band, the Neighborhood Improvement Association, will play, as will George Porter, Jr. and Runnin’ Partners, the Honey Island Swamp Band, Papa Mali, Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, the New Orleans Suspects, Billy Iuso and Restless Natives, the Soul Brass Band, Flow Tribe plus lots of special guests. There are special VIP tickets available with a private crawfish table and beer all day.
