NOMA at Night Line-Up

Live Performance from The Jump Hounds

in NOMA’s Lapis Center for the Arts at 7:30 pm 

The Jump Hounds is a New Orleans-based sextet that specializes in ‘jump’, the jazz-based rhythm and blues that bridges the gap between swing and rock & roll. To keep this often overlooked style of music alive, the band plays a mix of Jump Era classics and original compositions within the idiom. The result is a repertoire that balances energetic uptempo numbers, slow blues, and cozy mid-tempo swingers. This breadth of material makes for dynamic live shows that are tailored to the audience.

Live Piano Performance from Joe Krown

in the Great Hall at 6 pm

Joe Krown is a Hammond-endorsed artist and is part of the Hammond artist family. He’s played the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival every year since 2001 and the French Quarter Festival every year since 1998. In 2014, Krown was honored with a Piano Legacy Award, presented by the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra for being a “Master of Piano.” He is currently touring all over the U.S. and the world as the organ/piano player for the multi-award-winning, chart-topping Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band.
