MUSIC LINEUP REVEALED
KIRK JOSEPH, DJ LOGIC, CHARLIE WOOTON, BILL SUMMERS, LAURA REED, VOODOO VISIONARY, AND MORE TO PERFORM AT FIVE-DAY HYBRID ART FEST AT BELOVED NEW ORLEANS ART GARAGE FOR AN INTERACTIVE GALLERY EXPERIENCE BENEFITING THE NEW ORLEANS MUSICIANS ASSISTANCE FOUNDATION.
(New Orleans, LA, May 1, 2019) —Award-winning photographer Michael Weintrob has done it again, bringing together a community of like minded musicians and art lovers for a week of extraordinary music and art running from May,1 through May, 5 at The Art Garage located at 2231 St.Claude Ave. Among those set to perform at this year’s INSTRUMENTHEAD experience are Kirk Joseph, Roger Lewis, Bill Summers, Will Bernard, Charlie Wooton, DJ LOGIC, Voodoo Visionary and many more. The event will also host a special Blue Rose Music Night with performances from The Cris Jacobs Band, and Laura Reed on Friday, May 03.
Joining Weintrob for this high-profile exhibition is good friend and iconic artist Keith “Scramble” Campbell. This year marks 23 years since the two artists first met, and six years since Weintrob’s last exhibit in the Frenchman district. This also marks Campbell’s first marquee exhibit during Jazz-Fest.
Weintrob explains, “I’ve always had the dream of pairing music with my photography. The cool thing about this exhibition is that art is being seen, heard, and made, in the same room. I'm really proud to have a place to showcase these artists amazing talents, and to be able to give them a place to create.”
Festivities kick off in grand fashion Wednesday night, May 1st at 7:45 pm with a launch party featuring performances from an all-star cast of New Orleans musicians including: Clint Maedgen, Roger Lewis, Kevin Harris, Kirk Joseph, Jamie McLean, Big Sam, Terence Higgins, Papa MALI, Bobby Vega and more! The full lineup can be viewed here.
The INSTRUMENTHEAD pop-up will once again be teaming up with the New Orleans Musicians Clinic & Assistance Foundation. The event is open to the public with a suggested donation at the door, 100% of which will directly benefit NOMAF.
