The Loft Party is the most talked about, diverse underground happening of the year, gathering interesting people from around the globe for jazz, blues, rock and soul.
This is the greatest music party in the world. You float through stunning spaces with river views, catching the most amazing performances all under one roof—standing two feet from stardom with legends and unknown gems from Paris to Mississippi, with the famous and the soon-to-be…
The Loft Party is made with love to give back to YOU what you have made possible for so many in need.
This year’s theme will be “To New Orleans, With Love.” We will celebrate the survival, struggle and rebirth of New Orleans, 10 years after Katrina.
Your support has directly assisted in rebuilding New Orleans by rehousing and creating work for over 1,000 of the city’s most beloved musicians, while helping hundreds of their children as well for the past decade.
The Loft Party will feature more than 60 musicians, with bands changing every half hour. And for starters…how about Macy Gray and the Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band straight from the streets of New Orleans! There will be other incredible names and surprises we cannot mention yet…
You won’t want to miss this one. This event has become so popular that we have to limit the numbers this year.
Our soul goddess Macy Gray and diva Bettye LaVette (as raved about in the New Yorker); the Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band straight from the streets of the Crescent City; for our jazzheads…the Royals themselves, dedicating their moments to the late great Clark Terry: Kenny Barron, Randy Weston and The Heath Brothers, plus rising piano and film star Justin Kauflin in a tribute to his mentor; our New Orleans royalty: Prince of New Orleans Davell Crawford and Emperor of the Ivories Henry Butler; piano phenoms: ELEW and for the Blues lovers in the house… the Queen herself, Sweet Georgia Brown, and your favorite burn-down-the-house-in-a-zoot-suit saxman, the James Carter Organ Trio; and don’t forget all the surprises we can’t mention till we get closer! Special appearance by Savion Glover. MCs: Danny Glover, T.S. Monk, Mathieu Jaton Todd Barkan.
