Ponderosa Stomp 2011 Details Announced

 

For its 10th
Anniversary the Great New Orleans
Music Festival Spotlighting the Architects of American Music Will Happen on September

“When you talk about music events, The Ponderosa Stomp
is the real deal! This is three days of unbelievable performances by the
artists who started it all.”  – Terry
Stewart, President, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

 

Through hell and high water, the Ponderosa Stomp has spent
the last decade bringing icons of American music back to the stage, shining a
spotlight on the architects of American songs that are part of our collective
musical DNA.  2011 marks the 10th anniversary of the Stomp, which has
expanded over the years from a 2-day concert to include a film festival, music
conference, record hop and a DJ dance party. On September 16th and 17th, the
Ponderosa Stomp takes over a new venue, the Howlin’ Wolf while moving the music
conference, film festival and record hop into a central locale, the Renaissance
Arts Hotel. 

 

This milestone year features tributes to the essential New
Orleans record man Cosimo Matassa, Stax Records, Excello Records and
Southern music with Allen Toussaint, William Bell, Big Jay McNeely, Eddie Floyd,
Lady Bo, Sir Mack Rice, Lazy Lester, Dave Bartholomew, The Bo-Keys w/ Skip
Pitts and Howard Grimes, Carol Fran, Classie Ballou, Warren Storm, The Sluts and
many more. The full line-up is here: http://www.ponderosastomp.com/ponderosa_stomp_10_concert.php
