The Annual Jamie Galloway Crawfish Boil & Block Party

Jamie Galloway Crawfish Boil Poster

Each year, Dave Jordan hosts a crawfish boil and all-out block party fundraiser to celebrate the life of beloved musician and chef, Jamie Galloway, to benefit the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic.

Anchored by the legendary Maple Leaf Bar, the event has grown in popularity over the years; in 2018 more than a thousand guests were entertained on two stages by more than 50 of New Orleans’ finest musicians. Over 8,000 pounds of crawfish and all the fixings are 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.”

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.
