SUPERFLY DURING JAZZFEST’S
MAHALIA JACKSON THEATER SHOWS TAKE NEW SHAPE

NEW SPECIAL GUESTS ADDED TO WARREN HAYNES BAND SHOW ON MAY 5

GALACTIC AND FUNKY METERS ADD “SUPERFUNKJAM” SET TO MAY 6 SHOW


Superfly Presents is excited to announce new additions to the Mahalia Jackson Theater shows taking place during the 2011 Superfly during Jazzfest concert Series.
Traditionally, whenever Warren Haynes plays in New Orleans, he always welcomes many of the city’s greatest musicians to the stage to create some incredibly potent, adventurous and celebratory musical unions. This time will be no different, as the Warren Haynes Band show on May 5th has added some very special guests. Confirmed to perform with Haynes are Trombone Shorty, George Porter, Jr., Ivan Neville, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Walter “Wolfman” Washington and The Anders Osborne Band featuring Stanton Moore. This will only be the second US performance by the Haynes band this year.
On May 6th, in addition to Galactic and The Funky Meters playing their own full sets as originally advertised, the two bands will come together on stage for the first time ever to form the planet’s funkiest band for a one-time-only “Superfunkjam.” Galactic is taking requests for “Superfunkjam” songs on their Facebook page.
