Hot Funky Butt Jazz


Nov 2, 2018 to Nov 18, 2018
07:00 PM until 01:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Hot Funky Butt Jazz is an original musical exploring the exciting, turbulent world of 1900’s New Orleans and vibrant personalities that invented “hot music” or Jazz. The spirit of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau presides over the Funky Butt - the original jazz dance hall (which also served as a community church). The Funky Butt forms the backdrop of unheard stories of racism, rebellion, and resilience. It’s a hot spring in 1915. A band leader from the North arrives in Storyville, New Orleans searching for musicians to join his ragtime orchestra. When he hears the musicians at the Funky Butt Dance Hall, he implores them to go on tour and make a recording. But in a South segregated by Jim Crow, dirty politics, and violence, will the obstacles prevail? Hot Funky Butt Jazz is the story of dedication and perseverance in the face of great adversity. It gives voice to important unheard stories and is filled with infectious music of turn-of-the-century New Orleans. The Interact cast of 40+ actors will be joined by Zena Moses, Eugene Harding, and Jeremy Phipps from New Orleans. Local talents Sheridan Zuther and Abbey Stafford also join the cast and orchestra.
