Satchmo Struttin' and Mo'!!

Happy Friday and TGIF!!

There is so  much going on this weekend....So, where to get started??

First there's a very important event going on tonight at Zeitgeist (1618 Oretha Catle Haley) at 9:30 pm it's the Wenny Kelly Memorial Benefit Concert and this event is for a very good cause...There's gonna be performances by Johnny J. and the Hitmen, Egg Yolk Jubilee, Hawaii 504 plus a silent auction, food from area chefs and a jam session in Wenny’s honor.  Wenny Kelly was an area musician, Zeitgeist volunteer.  He suffered a massive stroke on June 26 as he was preparing to watch the U.S. vs. Ghana in the World Cup. After a seven hour emergency surgery and over a week in the hospital, he died on July 4, just three days shy of his 49th Birthday.  Unfortunately Wenny had no health insurance and his family needs your help.  Suggested donation is $10...come on down and show your support!!  For more info and how you can help click on the above link.

And of course tonight is the 10th Annual Satchmo Strut on Frenchmen Street....Here's just a sample of some of the music tonight!!  There will be plenty of music on the street (for free)...and if you want into the clubs, it's $30 for general admission, and $80 for on the above link for a complete list and details of all the fun stuff going on with the Strut!!
