From Louis Armstrong to Trombone Shorty, there is easily 100 years of New Orleans music to celebrate!

Members of The Hoodoo Loungers - an East End-based New Orleans Mardi Gras style party band, including music historian and filmmaker Joe Lauro, along with drummer and The Jam Session founder Claes Brondal will present a retrospective of the countless and continuously evolving forms of New Orleans music at the Southampton Arts Center (SAC) on Saturday, December 17th from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Spend the evening enjoying the Gut Bucket Blues, Jazz of Bunk Johnson, "Hot" Jazz of Louis Armstrong, New Orleans "Swamp Rock," the Voodoo sounds of Dr. John and the Neville Brothers, and much more.

"The concert will follow a chronological time line of New Orleans music ending with the more current brass band style as exemplified by Trombone Shorty and the Soul Rebels," remarked Brondal.

The performance is part of SAC's LIVE from Southampton Arts Center series in collaboration with The Jam Session.

"We are excited to close out the year with this tribute to the music of New Orleans as the perfect way to celebrate the end of a wonderful season," noted Amy Kirwin, SAC Director of Programs. "The LIVE from Southampton Arts Center concerts series has been a great success, and will continue in 2017 with more one-of-a-kind concerts."

A pre-concert reception featuring bites by Union Cantina will take place at 6:30 p.m.

The performance will be recorded live for WPPB 88.3FM. Tickets to LIVE from Southampton Arts Center: 100 Years of New Orleans Music are $10 per person.

The series will pick back up in 2017 with South of the Border: The Latin Side of Charlie Parker, featuring Morris Goldberg and band, on Saturday, January 14th.

Southampton Arts Center is located at 25 Jobs Lane in Southampton. For more information, call 631-283-0967 or visit www.southamptonartscenter.org.
