Satchmo Club Strut
The SATCHMO CLUB STRUT is a musical club crawl along Frenchmen Street and the surrounding area that is the annual fundraiser for NOJC's outreach programs. For one extraordinary night we close the street to vehicular traffic and all the clubs feature special performances in the spirit of Louis Armstrong to kick-off the Satchmo Summerfest weekend. Strutters purchase a wristband that allows them entrance to various venues to enjoy the live jazz music or a VIP wristband that allows entrance to all venues, access to a special seating area at the Red Stripe Stage in Jane Alley and a special VIP party featuring complimentary food and beverages from fabulous New Orleans establishments!
Artists for the Satchmo Club Strut 2011 included Allen Toussaint, Wess "Warmdaddy" Anderson, Lionel Ferbos, Ellis Marsalis, Donald Harrison Jr, Tom McDermott, Davell Crawford, Chris Thomas King, Shamarr Allen, Don Vappie, Glen David Andrews, Detroit Brooks, Yoshio Toyama & the Dixie Saints, Charmaine Neville and Jason Marsalis.
Satchmo Club Strut 2011 was dedicated to the memory of NOJC Board Member and tireless community volunteer Drex Brumfield, as it was our first Strut without his positive energy and smile.
Thank You To Our Wonderful Sponsors and Supporters!!
