Cap Jazz presents: A Tribute to New Orleans with “A” Band & NiteCap Long considered the birthplace of jazz, music is such an integral part of New Orleans that it’s often called “a living museum of music.” New Orleans also has a rich history of R&B, funk, pop, blues, rock and roll, and even classical music. From Gottschalk to Galactic, the city has produced fresh and exciting sounds that have influenced musicians worldwide. The history of New Orleans music is a vibrant microcosm of American music as a whole with influences from Spain, Africa, France, Germany and the Creole from the Carribean. Join “A” Band, NiteCap and faculty guests for a special night filled with the sounds of New Orleans, from Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Buddy Bolden and Sidney Bechet to brass band music, Dixieland, R&B, funk and more. Friday, January 27
