Centennial of Sin:  Storyville Revisited @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
  New Orleans’ infamous Storyville district was closed in 1917 after 20 years in existence, but its lore continues to fascinate locals and visitors alike. Centennial of Sin: Storyville Revisited is a three-day celebration of the closing of the historic Tenderloin District of New Orleans. It aims to preserve the historical significance and memory of The District as well as probe into new discoveries and interpretations that inspire and teach us. With traditional jazz music, informational and entertaining lectures, new historic research and tributes, dramatic performances, period dance, and art and poetry inspired by the District, the Centennial of Sin will appeal to everyone from the history enthusiast to the casual fan of New Orleans culture. Festivities begin with a Jazz funeral for the District on Basin Street on the morning of Friday, October 6. Following the funeral there will be an official wreath laying and opening ceremony featuring actor portrayals of characters from The District such as Sydney Story and Gertrude and Tom Anderson, plus New Orleans dignitaries to officiate. “It has always been my intention to preserve the historical significance and memory of The District, that area of New Orleans more popularly known as Storyville, through carefully researched materials presented in tasteful, entertaining and artistic ways,” says Amy Reuben, founder and artistic director of District Productions NOLA, the producer of Centennial of Sin: Storyville Revisited. “This weekend will prove to be a jolly good time for all who attend! Not glorifying the life, but celebrating the impact and[...]

Evan Christopher’s Clarinet Road: Storyville Centennial
Oct 8 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Evan Christopher's Clarinet Road: Storyville Centennial @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
Evan Christopher closes out “Centennial of Sin,” a weekend long commemoration of the Storyville district. The clarinet crusader collaborates with trumpet ace Duke Heitger and piano professor David Boeddinghaus to celebrate the earliest pioneers of traditional New Orleans music heard on the “Ramp” a century ago. Advance reservations guarantee priority seating. ABOUT EVAN: Anchored in the musical vocabulary created by early Creole clarinetists such as Sidney Bechet and Barney Bigard, Evan Christopher has created a highly personal brand of “contemporary early-jazz” that strives to extend the legacy of the New Orleans clarinet style. Charismatic and versatile, Christopher was drawn to the Crescent City from his native California in 1994 by the city’s rich cultural landscape for which he advocates. His intimate approach that exhibits a deep respect for the New Orleans tradition has prompted critics to describe it as “a triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past.”

Her voice and showmanship have been described as “Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s virtuoso commitment to her instrument and Odetta’s vocal power, creating a show that is a force of nature.” Jamie Anderson, indie-music.com cited…“Makes you want to put your hands in the air, shout hallelujah and shake your booty for the rest of the night…enough energy to power a large city,” with Radio Stonewall stating… “Lewis is the light at the end of the tunnel…”

Leroy Jones Quintet 7:00 pm
Leroy Jones Quintet
Oct 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Leroy Jones Quintet @ Little Gem Saloon | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
The legendary jazz trumpeter Leroy Jones is known to music lovers as the “keeper of the flame” for traditional New Orleans jazz and to critics as one of the top musicians ever produced by the Crescent City. “The mission of the Leroy Jones Quintet is to expose audiences everywhere to the authentic music of New Orleans, the music of Louis Armstrong, Buddy Bolden, Danny Barker and all the other greats who have helped create the rich gumbo that is the sound of New Orleans,” he says, “while putting our own more modern stamp on it.” Jones himself, a native of New Orleans, whose playing has been described as a blend of Louis Armstrong and bebop virtuoso Clifford Brown, has been a critical figure in the history of New Orleans music. A member of the New Orleans Jazz Hall of Fame, he was leader at the tender age of 12, of the seminal Fairview Band, a brass band whose alumni have included some of the best known musicians in New Orleans. It was the Fairview Brass Band which is widely credited with restoring interest in the brass band tradition of New Orleans. Today, in fact, New Orleans has more brass bands performing than at any time in the city’s history – an achievement that can be traced back directly to the Fairview Band and its successor the Leroy Jones Hurricane Brass Brand. A regular at Preservation Hall in New Orleans and a featured performer in the Harry Connick Orchestra, where his[...]
