PORTSMOUTH —Don’t miss the upcoming New Orleans-themed concert on Sun., June 16, beginning at 4:00 p.m. in the Worth Lot, 25 Maplewood Avenue in Portsmouth (the parking lot behind The Loft).
Come feel the jazz flow through you while dancing the warm June evening away with Portsmouth-based Jumbo Circus Peanuts and New Orleans bands Sweet Crude and Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band. With these tremendous musical powers combined with food, beverage, and community, the event is sure to be one to remember.
Jumbo Circus Peanuts starts the evening off at 4:00 p.m. Styled in the manner of a New Orleans street band, the ten-piece Jumbo Circus Peanuts serve up an exuberant stage presence along with musical selections that delight young and old.
Sweet Crude continues the excitement at 5:00 p.m. The six-piece band consistently delivers exciting shows featuring enough drums for a small marching band, exuberantly bellowed harmonies, and lyrics that jump from English to Louisiana French in a single verse.
The Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band will perform from 6:30-8:00 p.m. No band exemplifies the essence and soul of New Orleans like Rebirth Brass Band. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they’ve also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound.
Additionally, there will be food trucks, beer and wine available.
General admission is $12.00. VIP tickets are $15.00. To purchase tickets, visit www.themusichall.org or call 603-436-2400.
