The Kennedy Center and The DC Jazz Festival Present A Night in Treme: The Musical Majesty of New Orleans
The rich musical tapestry of New Orleans is brought to life with performers from the wildly popular HBO television series Treme (truh-MAY) from David Simon and Eric Overmyer. Produced by Danny Melnick for Absolutely Live Entertainment in association with Wendell Pierce, and hosted by actor Wendell Pierce (who portrays smooth-talking Antoine Batiste on the TV series), the concert features the Rebirth Brass Band; Mardi Gras Indian Chief and alto saxophonist Donald Harrison Jr. (Music Director); singer and trumpeter James Andrews; clarinetist Dr. Michael White; and funky trombonist Big Sam Williams. This is the exhilarating culminating concert of the 2011 DC Jazz Festival.
