Finally, the Big Easy meets the Big Apple at the NolaFunk Crawfish & Music Fest. There’ll be so much New Orleans in New York that you’ll be tempted to give up your cushy job in midtown and join a roving horn band. While you may not go that far, you’re certainly welcome to venture over to Governors Island and stuff your face with two pounds of fresh crawfish (included in the $55 ticket package.) Then, tear the metaphorical roof off the hypothetical mother with the Rebirth Brass Band–a legendary New Orleans group that has flown in direct from NOLA to play the festival. Their presence alone is worth the price of admission, but add several other funk and soul bands…plus an epic amount of shellfish? Count us in.
