Jazz party kicks off New Orleans Jazz Weekend

What began as a Dixie jam session 20 years ago promises new beginnings for the A Wing and A Prayer Dixieland Orchestra of DeKalb.

The first New Orleans Jazz Weekend kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday with a jazz party at Faranda’s, 302 Grove St. in DeKalb. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. 

Ragtime and jazz pianist Pauline Cultra and New Orleans jazz clarinetist Brian Patti will be guest performers.

There will be a cash bar and a dance floor. Tickets cost $25 at the door.

A  jam session will be open during the last set of the evening. If interested, send email to john@justmakeithappen-dekalb.com before Friday.  

On Sunday, a “N’Awlins Jazz Worship” will be held 9 and 11:30 a.m. at DeKalb’s First United Methodist Church, 321 Oak St. Both services are open to the public. The worship services will open 15 minutes early with a New Orleans Tribute that will include “Bourbon St. Parade,” “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans” and “Sunday.”  

A Wing and A Prayer Dixieland Orchestra will travel to Wayne on Sunday afternoon for the city’s annual Homecoming Parade and Ice Cream Social to be held from 4 to 6 p.m. This will be the group’s 20th year at the event.
