Orleans Records' Virgin Vinyl Release Party

For 14 years, Carlo Ditta has labored to produce a series of fine recordings by overlooked or under-recorded artists whose works are now recognized as important and colorful strains of the rich musical fabric of New Orleans. Ditta tracks them down, drags them into makeshift studios or cuts them in context, puts the records out, assists the artists’ efforts to get a stage show together, helps book them and handle their little affairs, buys ads in the blues magazines when he can, hustles CDs out of the trunk of his car and juggles his jerky cash flow to keep all the balls in the air like the legendary independent record entrepreneurs of old.

Tonight, Orleans Records celebrates the vinyl release of "Pass the Hatchet" and "Life in Heaven" with live performances by Carlo Ditta, Johnny Peninno, Anthony Donado, Robert Snow, Rick Stelma and Earl "Stereo" Stanley and special guest dj spinster. All tickets come with a free Orleans Records CD!


*Ticket purchase does not include a table reservation. Tickets are general admission and there is no guaranteed seating without reserving a table.
