The Official Who Dat Rally & Music Festival will bring thousands of fans together to rally for the 2019 Saints football season. Fans will enjoy a weekend full of great music (on two outdoor stages!), food, beverages, and arts & crafts. There’s something for everyone; even the children of the Who Dat Nation! The three-day event will take place September 6,7&8, just one day before the start of the season.
The weekend kicks off with “A Salute to New Orleans Music Legends,” a stand-alone evening concert on Friday, Sept. 6, on the outdoor Who Dat Stage starting at 6 p.m.
Billed as a celebration of the music of Fats Domino, Dave Bartholomew, Dr. John, Art Neville and Allen Toussaint, the line-up includes Irma Thomas, Deacon John, John “Papa” Gros, Renard Poche, Lenny Green and other musicians who performed with the late legends. Admission is free for this Friday night event and donations are requested for the NOMC.
On Saturday, Sept. 7., scheduled performers include the Family Stone featuring founding Sly & the Family Stone saxophonist Jerry Martini, the Producers, Louis Prima Jr. & the Witnesses, the Topcats, the Lost Bayou Ramblers and Michael O’Hara.
The Sunday, Sept. 8 roster is highlighted by the New Power Generation featuring members of Prince’s backing band, plus Cowboy Mouth, George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners, the Honey Island Swamp Band and Corey Henry & the Treme Funktet.
