The annual Tipitina's Foundation fundraiser features an all-star concert inside the music club and a free street festival outside, where there will be performances by the Roots of Music and Mary D. Coghill Charter School bands. Saxophonist Donald Harrison Jr. (pictured) will be added to Tipitina's Walk of Fame. As artistic director of the Tipitina's internship program, Harrison has mentored many aspiring young musicians. The concert features Galactic, Anders Osborne, Walter "Wolfman" Washington and the Roadmasters, Bo Dollis Jr. and the Wild Magnolias, New Orleans Suspects, Big Sam's Funky Nation and others. There's also a marching band contest pitting Edna Karr High School against Warren Easton Charter High School. The Instruments a Comin' program has provided more than $3.15 million worth of instruments to 101 Louisiana schools. Concert tickets $50, VIP tickets $200.
