Southbank plays host to the music of New Orleans

Southbank plays host to the music of New Orleans Image

On the evening of November 20, Dodds St will take on the appearance of a street from the French Quarter, as it offers attendees both a sound bite and a taste of New Orleans.

New Orleans is world-renowned for the cultural fusion of French, Spanish, Cajun and Creole heritage that has created its unique music and food.

VCA Jazz and Improv Ensemble, Adam Rudegeair’s Bayou Tapestry, The Furbelows, The Lagerphones, Horns of Leroy and The Hoodangers will represent the New Orleans music scene for the evening.

Partygoers can enjoy these artists’ individual takes on the tunes that have graced the city’s streets for centuries.

Adam Rudegeair has just returned from New Orleans, and is excited about playing at the party with Bayou Tapestry.

“Having been there and experienced the city for myself, I am hoping to transfer some of that vibe over to the streets of Melbourne,” he explained.

“It is a fabulous musical place that shouldn’t exist, but does. Hopefully, when people get a little taste of what is on offer, they want to find out more about this wonderful city,” he said.

It is the Melbourne Music Week’s Self-Made that is presenting the street party. It will be one of the last events to finish up the program for the 2015 Melbourne Music Week.

This week of musical performances prides itself on being the only festival of its kind showcasing Melbourne’s very own music scene. During the week of November 13-20, Melbourne will host a wide array of different music events across the city.

Venue: Dodds St, Southbank
Time: Friday, November 20 (4pm-12am)
Tickets: Adult $25, concession $20

Full program and tickets are available at Melbourne.vic.gov.au/mmw
