The annual fundraiser for NOCCA student scholarships features a fairly consistent local all-star lineup, including Irma Thomas performing at the early evening patron party. This year's roster features Trombone Shorty, Theresa Andersson, Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers, Rebirth Brass Band, John Boutte, Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs, the Eric Lindell Band, Herlin Riley, MyNameIsJohnMichael and others. The event is a fundraiser for the Daniel Price Memorial Fund, and it has raised more than $300,000 for college scholarships for NOCCA graduates. Daniel Price was a NOCCA alum and artist who was slain in San Francisco in 2003. For more information about him and the program, visit www.danielpricememorial.org. Tickets $37, patron party $127. — WILL COVIELLO
