New Orleans’ French Quarter Festival 2012 – Hour 1

In our first hour of the 2012 French Quarter Festival broadcast we will celebrate our 5th anniversary of LIVE broadcasts from New Orleans by sharing sound bites from the previous years. You’ll recognize prior guests and the comedy relief they offered on past shows; guests like Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. and Chef Duke “Big Sexy” Locicero of Cafe Giovanni.  We’ll also have new friends from the art and film community join us like Katie Williams with the New Orleans Film Office and Grace Wilson from the New Orleans Museum of Art.   We will welcome back French Quarter Festival Executive Director, Marci Schramm and our own Kelly Schulz from New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau.

French Quarter Festival was first produced in 1984 as a way to bring residents back to the Quarter; following the World’s Fair and extensive sidewalk repairs in the French Quarter. More than 1,500 community volunteers help to make the festival a success. French Quarter Festivals, Inc. is a private, non-profit 501c(3) organization.

More than 20 stages throughout the French Quarter celebrate local music and represent every genre from traditional and contemporary jazz to R&B, New Orleans funk, brass bands, folk, gospel, Latin, Zydeco, classical, cabaret, and international.
