On Wednesday, August 31st at 7pm we're hosting our second New Orleans inspired extravaganza of the Summer at Drom. For the first part of the night, New Orleans' hottest Nu Hot Jazz band, Tuba Skinny, is ready to set the city ablaze. Sharing the bill with a set of his own is Big Easy's stride piano master of HBO's Treme fame Tom McDermott. Dance floor will be expanded to accommodate all with happy feet.
For the second part of NOLA-inspired festivities of the night on August 31st we invite you to "Misha's" midnight New Orleans Jazz Funeral and Second Line Parade, which will be like no other in history, at an iconic, breathtaking Manhattan venue. The location will remain secret until August 31st and will be revealed via email the evening of the 31st to those who are generous enough to donate $15 or more to Misha's Funeral Expense Fund.
Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist big band leader Vince Giordano, multi-award-winning clarinet virtuoso Anat Cohen, dynamite percussionist Joe Saylor of the Jon Batiste & Stay Human band, rising star hot-jazzer and bluesman Blind Boy Paxton, stride and ragtime specialist Dalton Ridenhour, as well as major surprise guest stars!
In another exciting new partnership the fest is joining forces with Shanghai Mermaid, the storied purveyor of the most extraordinary jazz age experiences around town, to bring you Storyville Stomp. Join us for a fun and sultry evening set in 1917 New Orleans’ red light district filled with hot jazz and smokey blues, as well as sensual performance art from burlesque stars to aerial artists.

Very excited to be presenting #TubaSkinny in NYC on 8/31. They're our favorite band of the Nu Hot Jazz movement from New Orleans. Joining them for a set of his own at our Summer Bash will be Big Easy's stride master Tom McDermott. Dance floor at @DromNYC will be expanded for the dancer, so very few reserved table seats are available. If you want a reserved table seating we suggest to get your tickets now. => NYHotJazzFest.com

@BriaSkonberg's show at Joe's Pub is on Monday. And sorry, not to be culturally insensitive, but if you happen to be a Russian nesting doll, you have to buy tickets for all of you, since there aren't that many seats remaining. #hotjazz #jazz #oneticketperperson #nycevents
