Bayou Boogaloo Fundraiser tonight, 3/29

The good folks that bring you the annual festival on the banks of Bayou St. John are hosting a patron party and fundraiser tonight to help support the free event.

Despite New Orleans basically escaping most of the effects of the recession, local festivals still have to pay talent, support services and everything else that is involved in presenting a three-day premier festival that remains FREE. In order to do so, the Mothership Foundation taps every possible source of income. Tonight is your chance to give a little back and help keep the Bayou Boogaloo free.

Head over to Chickie Wah Wah at 7 PM (well-heeled folks are welcome at 6 PM for the patron party). They have a lot of fun stuff in store including a live auction featuring a musician / auctioneer, Johnny Dilks, who will keep you entertained, a silent auction and food from such area restaurants as Three Muses, La Petite Grocery, Patois, Mandina’s, Katie’s, Boucherie and BooKoo BBQ. Shameless plug- my two books, “I Got the Fish in the Head” and the new one, “Up Front and Center: New Orleans Music at the End of the 20th Century” are part of the auction.

Of course, this being New Orleans, there will be music by Camile Baudoin and the Living Rumors. Chickie Wah Wah is smoke free, so you have no excuse not to come out and support this great cause.
