Satchmo SummerFest kicks off next week
with live performances on WWOZ

TVD is proud to be a media sponsor for Satchmo SummerFest for the sixth year in a row. On Thursday and Friday we’ll have previews of the annual festival which has moved back to the Old U.S. Mint after a year in Jackson Square, and reviews the following week. New Orleans’ community radio station, WWOZ (90.7 FM), will feature live performances during a preview week beginning Monday, July 31.

All of the performers are also scheduled at the festival and listeners can tune in via terrestrial radio or online at www.org.

The first performance on Monday will feature vocalist Topsy Chapman and her singing daughters in  the group Solid Harmony. They will play during the Jazz from the French Market show at 5:30 PM. Chapman is an inventive vocalist grounded in the New Orleans traditions of jazz and gospel. On Tuesday morning, one of the youngest brass bands in the city, the Red Wolf Brass Band, will appear on the traditional jazz show at 10 AM.

On Thursday, one of the more interesting acts to appear on the local scene in recent years, Ecirb Müller & Twisted Dixie, will perform during Jazz from the French Market show at 4:30 PM. Ecirb Muller is the brainchild and the mythical alter ego of the great trumpeter Dr. Brice Miller and his band is made up of stalwarts of the local scene.

The preview series concludes on Friday with Leroy Jones and New Orleans Finest. They will be appearing on the trad jazz show at 10 AM. Jones is one of the finest trumpeters the city has ever produced and has been a regular at Satchmo SummerFest since the event’s inception.
