Daze Between New Orleans Details 2023 Return: Goose, Tank and the Bangas, Neal Francis, David Shaw and More

Today, Daze Between New Orleans announced it will return to New Orleans’ historic Faubourg Brewery during the days between New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival weekends on Tuesday, May 2, and Wednesday, May 3, 2023. The new year’s gathering–presented by Dayglo Presents, Live For Live Music, GMP Live, Purple Hat Productions and Rose Tours–will be headlined by Goose and feature an eclectic lineup on both days.

On Tuesday, Goose will be joined at the event by New Orleans’ own Tank and the Bangas, Lawrence a soul-pop group founded by New York City-raised sibling duo Clyde and Gracie Lawrence, another New York City export the soulful Melt, along with adored local acts J & The Causeways and The Quickening.

Along with Goose’s set, Wednesday’s gathering at the Faubourg Brewery will see a performance by The Revivalists’ co-founder David Shaw and his solo project, the stylish Chicago-based keyboardist and sing-songwriter Neal Francis, iconic The Meters bassist and New Orleans legend George Porter Jr. and his Runnin’ Pardners, the fast-rising Connecticut jamband Eggy, along with local ensemble the Honey Island Swamp Band.

Last year’s inaugural event was headlined by The String Cheese Incident over two nights and featured a bill with Snarky Puppy, Lettuce, Eric Krasno & Friends and more. The event also saw high-profile sit-ins from surprise special guests like Billy Strings.

“Daze Between New Orleans is starting to become an annual tradition,” said Live for Live Music founder Kunj Shah. “It’s a remarkable event anchored by Jazz Fest, colored with incredible music and delicious food, in a beautiful venue. New Orleans is ingrained in the fabric of everything we do at Live For Live Music, and to be able to put on an event that gives back to this city that has given the world so much culture is an honor.”

Along with the joy the event will bring to music lovers, Daze Between New Orleans will give further elation to the community by donating a portion of proceeds to New Orleans-based nonprofit organizations via the Rex Foundation, a non-profit organization created in 1983 by the Grateful Dead family and friends. The funds will be raised through ticket sales on-site, an auction featuring coveted items, experiences from artists on the lineup, New Orleans and Grateful Dead-themed artwork, memorabilia and more.

Purple Hat Productions’ Paul Levine added, “Since I started coming to Jazz Fest in 1999, the ‘Daze Between’ Jazz Fest weekends have always been some of my favorite days to be in New Orleans. Together with my partners L4LM and GMP Live we have been throwing special late-night shows on these days for many years. It’s our way of giving back to the city and culture that has inspired us all in our lives and careers. Working with Rex Foundation to help raise funds for multiple New Orleans charities is the culmination of these efforts and really the cherry on top.”

It’s notable that Daze Between New Orleans 2023 has also partnered with Relix to present daily musical conversations with the event’s musicians, local artists and other influential figures in the music scene. There will also be a curated artist village with works by local artisans and vendors, not to mention all the recently renovated Faubourg Brewery has to offer, from choice brews to incredible Louisana cuisine.

Single-day and two-day passes, as well as a variety of VIP options, will go on sale Friday, Dec. 16, at noon CT. Pre-sale tickets will be available Thursday, Dec. 15, at 1 p.m. EST and can be accessed with the code RELIX. Find tickets and learn more about Daze Between New Orleans here.
