Backbeat

Backbeat Foundation began its Backbeat Jazzfest Series in 2006, crossing our fingers and hoping that the music lovers who annually descend upon our city would not let Hurricane Katrina silence the music, passion and kinetic energy of the night. The fans did not disappoint. As the series matures we strive to create not just concerts, but happenings that encourage new collaborations on stage and help to create unique and intimate experiences for our supporters and the musicians alike. Our programming is intended to inspire discovery of new music and honor the legends that laid the bedrock upon which this temple of music we call New Orleans is built.
