The Annual Jamie Galloway Crawfish Boil & Block Party

Every year, the legendary Maple Leaf Bar and Dave Jordan host a crawfish boil fundraiser celebrating the life of beloved musician and chef, Jamie Galloway, to benefit the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic.

The event has grown in popularity over the years, to an all-out block party featuring two stages, over 50 of NOLA’s finest musicians, and thousands of pounds of crawfish and all the fixings boiled by crews of Seither’s Seafood and Clesi’s Restaurant and Catering. The success of the Jamie Galloway Crawfish Boil grows each year thanks to supporters near and far. It’s been called “The most anticipated event before Jazz Fest.”

The 8th annual event takes place on Sunday, March 27th! Music Lineup: Talking Grass: The Tanglers Bluegrass Tribute to The Talking Heads; Dave Jordan and the NIA w/special guests; Riverbenders featuring members of New Orleans Suspects, Honey Island Swamp Band, and Johnny Sketch; and George Porter Jr. and the Runnin’ Pardners.

Come join us for a fun-filled day as we celebrate the life of our beloved Jamie Galloway while supporting local musicians. Limited amount of tables available, get yours while they last. No refunds – boil rain or shine!

About Jamie Galloway

Jamie Galloway

James ‘Jamie’ Galloway III, a beloved Oak Street musician and chef, was 41 when he passed away in 2012. Originally from Alexandria, Galloway made his life in New Orleans providing his friends and fans with two staples of assured happiness: good food and good music. A fiber in the fabric of the local music scene for over two decades, Jamie played alongside Dave Jordan, festival music director, in the band Juice, providing harmonica, percussion and vocals. In addition to live music, the festival honors Jamie’s love of shared food via its tasty crawfish boil. As was Jamie, the New Orleans Musicians Clinic is an integral part of the city’s music culture, so it is fitting that through this event they are forever linked.
