Ponderosa Stomp Festival Now has Fall Date
There is much to celebrate as the 9th Annual Ponderosa Stomp Festival kicks into action in 2010 with a new fall weekend to present another rocket-fueled cavalcade of American music stars. After eight years of spring events, fans are marking their calendars on the 24th & 25th of September in 2010.
An incredible array of performers represents American music’s expansive range of genres, from twangy guitar genius to bold, sassy R&B, Chicano rock, primal garage, truckin’ anthems, Southern soul, blues, Cajun, swamp pop and rockabilly.
Duane Eddy, SugarPie De Santo, Thee Midniters, Red Simpson, The Trashmen, Honeyboy Edwards, Lazy Lester, LaLa Brooks of the Crystals, Roy Head, Barbara Lynn and Cajun genius D.L. Menard will lead the charge.
The Stomp doesn’t just blow minds in the evenings, au contraire, by day there is the American music history conference, presented in partnership with the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame & Museum and the Louisiana State Museum, at the beautiful Cabildo in Jackson Square, in which the great producers, iconoclastic performers, journalists and notable music figures speak on panels and oral histories.
That isn’t all: the wonderful exhibit, curated by The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation, “The Secret History of Louisiana Rock ‘n’ Roll” is on display at the museum as well. This year’s Clandestine Celluloid two-day film series moves to One Eyed Jacks, a few blocks from the Music History Conference.
The Ponderosa Stomp Foundation is a not-for-profit cultural organization whose mission is celebrating the legacy, revitalizing the careers and preserving the history of American musicians.
