Oteil Burbridge, Eric Krasno, George Porter Jr. and More to Play Maple Leaf Bar During Jazzfest

The Maple Leaf Bar will offer a wide variety of shows during Jazzfest including the likes of Oteil Burbridge, Eric Krasno, Marco Benevento, Jennifer Hartswick, George Porter Jr. and many more. The longest running music venue in New Orleans outside of the French Quarter will present its 40th Jazzfest Concert Series beginning April 25 through May 4.

Performances of note include a special late night “Funk N’ Stay Up Y’all” with Marco Benevento, Reed Mathis, Mike Dillon and Johnny Vidacovich on April 26. The second week of Jazzfest features performances from George Porter Jr. Trio, Rebirth Brass Band and The Nth Power, among others.

Tickets for the shows are available here. The Maple Lear Bar does not clear the room between shows, so one ticket is all that is necessary to remain in the venue for the evenings where there are multiple performances.
