Tipitina’s Announces 2011 “Fess Jazztival” Schedule

The beauty of Jazz Fest is the way it gloriously swallows up the city for the better part of a two weeks.  Once the Fairgrounds shut down each day, the party moves to every bar, club and restaurant with even a distant approximation of a stage or performance area.  Live music institution Tipitina’s gets in on the fun with a string of evening double-headers dubbed “Fess Jazztival”, and the 2011 schedule is starting to come together.

The early shows will include Dr. John and the Lower 911, J.J. Grey and Mofro, Dumpstafunk, Bruce Hornsby, a Brass Band blowout featuring Dirty Dozen and Soul Rebels as well as offer an opportunity to see The Radiators before their farewell 3-night run at Tip’s in June.  Galactic and Trombone Shorty will return for their annual late night performances and plenty more acts are still to be announced.
