SPIRIT OF NEW ORLEANS
Coming to a City Near You
New Orleans has a vibrancy unlike anywhere in the world. Millions of people flock to the city each year to let the good times roll. It’s common to hear newcomers say “I don’t know what it is about New Orleans, but…”. Everything the city has to offer a tourist makes it easy to overlook what is actually behind the magical atmosphere: the people.
The musicians, artists, and culture bearers that create the soul of New Orleans can be taken for granted by more than just visitors. They’re a big reason for the billions of dollars in tourism revenue each year, but they aren’t recognized or rewarded accordingly.
The Jazz Crawl intends to be a vehicle for refocusing national attention to the artistic culture and talented individuals that make New Orleans such a magical place. The artists and organizations we feature will also be given opportunities and commissions through additional shows and presentations in the host city.
