Superfly Productions is proud to announce its 8th annual “Superfly during JazzFest" concert series. Series events will take place from Friday, April 23 through Sunday, May 2 at several venues throughout New Orleans, including the State Palace Theatre, the Orpheum Theatre, Twi-Ro-Pa, the Mermaid Lounge, and the Riverboat Cajun Queen. Confirmed shows are listed below, with additional shows to be announced soon.

The 2004 Superfly during JazzFest concert series presents local and national talent from a colorful array of genres, including series alums like alt-country band Wilco and New Orleans favorite Galactic. Galactic will play a show each weekend of the festival, including a co-bill with hip-hop crew Jurassic 5. Festival newcomers include instrumental art-rock band Tortoise playing Sunday, May 2 in Twi-Ro-Pa's Tchoupitoulas Room. Another highlight will be Gov't Mule's 10th Anniversary Celebration, a two-night stand at the Orpheum Theatre Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1.

Once again, the Superfly during JazzFest series will feature a variety of venues and show formats. From the edgy, intimate Mermaid Lounge, to grand, ornate theaters like the State Palace, fans will be presented with a variety of options. Special shows aboard the Riverboat Cajun Queen include the Radiators on Saturday, April 27 and Garage a Trois on Friday, April 23. As always, the series will utilize late night club slots, featuring a performance by organic trance band Sound Tribe Sector 9 and a post-Gov't Mule show with Chris Robinson & the New Earth Mud and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. In addition to scheduled acts, the series' multi-venue format promotes one-time collaborations and surprise sit-ins.

The Superfly during JazzFest concert series began in 1997 to fulfill an intense demand for nighttime music events during the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Since then, the event has become a premier destination for music fans from all over the country. Spanning ten days and several venues, the Superfly series caters to the grassroots rock fan base, a group of passionate music lovers who favor improvisation-based acts of all sorts.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
